EPIC Student Ministry


EPICmsm Middle School Ministry

Middle school service is held on Sunday evenings at both the Davis Islands Campus from 6 to 8 :30 p.m. alongside the high school ministry.  Our service includes a game, worship and a lesson from one of our teachers.  Teaching at EPIC focuses on age-appropriate, Biblical concepts that have direct application to our students lives today.

Middle school is where we believe students begin to take ownership of their faith and can begin to walk independently in their relationship with Christ.  Our middle school small groups are led by awesome volunteers who make a year-long commitment to invest in the lives of the middle school students – you’ll see your child connect with their small group leader in person at weekly small groups (on Wednesday nights), virtually through texting, social media like Instagram, and through social activities like small group outings and the attendance of school sporting events. It is our goal to get your student connected in community with peers who can build them up according to God’s will for their life and hold them accountable as they walk that path. Plus, we have a pretty good time while we’re at it.

Epic Student Ministry (High School)

At South Tampa Fellowship, 9th – 12th graders can connect with their peers and devoted student ministry volunteers at EPIC. EPIC is built on four central principles: Gospel, community, worship and mission. Everything we do fits under these principles.

Once a month, we host EPIC Bash, an outreach event for high school students and all of their friends.  These monthly events feature live worship, games and food, as well as a Gospel presentation intended to help students share their faith in Jesus Christ with their friends.

The rest of the month, our Sunday nights (6 – 8:30 p.m.) are dedicated to an in-depth bible study led and facilitated by our student ministry teaching team. We also offer a students-only Starting Point class (Christianity 101) for students who made a decision to follow Christ at one of our monthly EPIC Bash events.

Because we emphasize the importance of community and accountability at EPIC, we offer grade- and gender-based small groups that meet throughout the week all around South Tampa.   Our goal at EPIC is to come alongside families and foster each student’s growth in their relationship with Christ, to encourage boldness in their faith to be on mission in their schools and communities, and to represent Jesus in all they do.  Certainly, the high school years aren’t without their struggles, and our student small group leaders are well equipped to walk through those seasons.  You’ll see your student connect with their small group leaders and peers with the foundation of Christ, and you’ll see a deep commitment to biblical accountability and scriptural teachings as those relationships grow.
