Epic Missions, a Vero Beach ministry that has sent approximately 300 volunteers out into the community in the last six months, is in dire need of donations.
The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization spent three months completely renovating the 7,000-square-foot Missions base, where short-term missionary teams from all over the U.S. live while they have worked thousands of volunteer hours in the Vero area.
That base and ministry itself is now in jeopardy unless Epic Missions' board can raise $150,000 in the next few weeks (ideally by Aug. 1).
Paul and Jackie Munsie, founders of Epic Missions, felt the call on their hearts to devote their lives and everything that they had to grow this spirtual child, Epic Missions, to spread the Gospel and help people in our area.
The Munsies have built relations with a number of local charitable organizations, including Bury The Violence, Habitat for Humanity, Prison Fellowship Ministries, Shining Light Garden, Teen Challenge, Wabasso School, The Love Center, Harvest Food Bank, The Source, Hibiscus House, Sportsologie, and Sarah’s Kitchen. An Epic Missions team will be holding a Family Fun Day on the Epic property, 6025 12th Street (behind First Church of God) this coming Wednesday, July 25, from 4-7 p.m.
Mission teams have been coming to Epic Missions since February and have served all over the area in all kinds of ways. All of this is done for the glory of God, and all of it is done with love.
When the Lord directed the Munsies to this 16-acre property on 12th Street, which had been used as a mission base years ago and then abandoned, the missions building (The Sending Point as Jackie has named it) was in extreme disrepair. To fund the renovation, which included tearing out mold-filled walls and ancient wiring, and rebuilding and replacing it all - just for starters, Paul and Jackie gave everything they had - literally, including proceeds from the sale of two cars, their savings and retirement fund.
A fundraiser will be held at Epic Missions, 6025 12th St, from 5-8 p.m. on July 29. The event will feature live music and food, and donations are requested.
