A fundraiser to benefit non-profit ministry Epic Missions will be held at Its headquarters, 6025 12th St, from 5-8 p.m. on July 29. The event will feature live music, fun and food, and donations will be gratefully accepted.

Epic's Board of directors has an August deadline to raise the $150,000 down payment for their mission base headquarters on 12th Street, or "we may lose it," said Epic President Paul Munsie. "It would be great if we could find one donor to fund the entire amount, but as that has not happened, but if we could find, for instance, 1000 or people who can contribute $150 that would be even more wonderful."

Epic Missions has sent approximately 300 volunteers out into the community in the last six months, contributing thousands of hours of service by helping the homeless, the underprivileged and children and seniors in need of assistance.

The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization spent three months completely renovating the 7,000-square-foot Epic Missions base, where short-term missionary teams from all over the U.S. live while they volunteer 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 and his wife, 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.
 
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.

Donations are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to Epic Missions Capital Fundraising.
