The Epic Church story began years before the 2009 official worship gathering launch. Picture it, the early ‘90s, three pastors; one a pastor from Palatka, Florida, with a vision to start a new church in Flagler County after noticing the growing number of people, yet so few churches. The two other pastors trained, equipped and awaiting how God would use their gifts. Fast forward to 1994, those three pastors, Dannie Williams (pastor from Peniel Baptist Church in Palatka, Florida), Billy Wight and John Shepherd came in contact with each other and began to pray about starting a new church in Flagler County. In September of 1995, Palm Coast Community Church (PC3) launched its first worship service. For over a year, people from Peniel Baptist Church came to serve and help get PC3 launched well.
Jump 13 years later into the story, God gives the leadership of PC3 a familiar burden on their hearts to launch a new church to reach out to the many people in the county that are seeking a connection with God but don’t know where to begin. God invited Trent Schake and his family to lead the charge in starting that new church (Trent had been on the PC3 team for nine years as the pastor of small groups)
On September 20, 2009, Epic Church launched its first official worship gathering with 300 people in attendance. Since Epic Church was launched in 2009 the goal has been to provide a safe place for those searching for answers to ask questions and engage God. Everyday, God continues to invite people into this epic story He’s telling, and we’re still trying our best not to DO church, but BE the church in our community.
