“Epikos Missions exists to make more and better disciples by partnering with local churches worldwide.”
A Heart of GO
Global Missions is people–people who are willing to make themselves available to “Go” where God may lead them to make a difference in their world. Epikos believes that God loves the world, and that we should show that love. Epikos global missions is not a program, it is a movement. Global missions at Epikos is you, and it is an opportunity to embrace the adventure.

Global Missions Partners
We joyfully partner with these families who once worshipped at Epikos as they reach the nations with the gospel:
Tom & Tany Clyde
Prague, Czech Republic
Since 2013, the Clydes have been working alongside churches to develop leaders and multiply churches across the city, while building relationships and seeking to share the gospel.
Luke & Ellenie Hodgdon
Papua New Guinea
The Hodgdons desire to bring the gospel to an unreached people group—a group of people in an area of the world where Christianity has yet to be presented. They are learning the language and culture of a specific group in order to tell them about Jesus and plant a church.
Zach & Misa Harrod
Prague, Czech Republic
The Harrods serve in a young church that is seeking to develop more disciples. Zach also serves as a “missional insider” by coaching an American-style football team, and Misa serves with a ministry that helps women caught up in human trafficking.
The V Family*
The Vs are learning the local language and building a business so that they can bring the gospel to an unreached people group. Their goal is to grow relationships, share the Good News, establish a church, and disciple believers to maturity.
*Due to restrictions on evangelism in their area, this family prefers to remain anonymous.
