The night everything began for Keith Carpenter
(now lead pastor for Epic), it started with a dream.
In the dream, he
went through a town with a team of people dedicated to sharing the message of Christ.
was able to speak with elderly, homeless, and a young woman, explaining how Jesus forfeited His
Deity by entering this world in human flesh to become like humans.
spoke of how Christ gave His
life as a sacrifice to forgive sin in order that men and women could experience the beauty of a reconciled relationship with God.
As this message spread, the entire town was transformed as Jesus Christ came to into people's lives, healing them of sin, brokenness, and hopelessness.
was already involved in full-time ministry for a church in Minnesota, and loving every minute of it.
After that dream though, he
sensed that God might be calling him into a new place, a new city, a new form of ministry, the starting of a church.
As God provided confirmation through circumstances and people around Keith
, the next step was to invite others into this journey and calling.
After much prayer, preparation and study about what starting a church could look like, a team packed up two huge moving vans and headed across the country for the Emerald City.
Once in Seattle, Keith
and the team began to seek God's more specific calling, and our hearts were drawn to North Seattle.
, the lead team and Epic Life
as a whole, has witnessed God's provision and miracles in countless ways.
We celebrate the story of God's power, provision, hope, and the abundant life God has been and is continuing to create along the Aurora Corridor and look to the future He
leads us into.
