Epic Christian Church is an independent, non-denominational Christian Church. Our roots are from the Restoration Movement (Independent Christian Churches and Churches of Christ). Our Elder Board, established in early 2012, guards us spiritually and strategically through prayer, teaching the Word, protecting sound doctrine and shepherding the flock.
Epic was planted through STADIA, an international ministry dedicated to planting independent Christian Churches, and four parent churches: Central Christian Church, Broadway Chrisitan Church, Chandler Christian Church (no Compass Christian Church) and Spring of Life Christian Church (now CCV-East Valley). Pastor Jeff and Chrissy Myal launched the church on February 27, 2005.
In August of 2014, Jim Herzberg became the Lead Pastor. Jim and his wife Kelly moved from Colorado Springs, CO at the end of 2009 to join the Epic Team as the Associate Pastor of Adult Discipleship. The Herzbergs have three daughters, two sons-in-law and three grandchildren!
Epic has met in three different locations. After a year of meeting at Kathryn Sue Simonton Elementary School, Epic moved to Walker Butte K-8 School in Johnson Ranch and remained there as a portable church for over 10 years. On Dec. 4th, 2016, Epic started holding one service at 10:30am by leasing from an Apostolic Assembly of Faith in Christ Jesus congregation at 5330 E. Skyline Drive, San Tan Valley, 85140. In November of 2018, we started two new service times at 9:00 and 10:45am.
Our heart is to be a sending church, both locally and globally and a church that plants churches who plant churches! We have helped plant hundreds of churches through Stadia and specifically Real Life Christian Church in Chandler in 2007, Day Twelve (which is now New City Church) in 2011 and Mt. Olivos Church in Tosagua, Ecuador in 2012. We are currently partnering with Broadway Christian Church to plant Rhythm Community Church which will launch in Sept. of 2019.
