Join us at EPIC in Business Conference!

Durham, North Carolina

EPIC, Entrepreneurial People in Christ, is a two day business conference focused as a training ground for world changers – entrepreneurs, business owners, business leaders and visionaries. We are called to ignite a movement to transform and disrupt the status quo of traditional business culture. Lasting societal transformation can only occur when it is rooted in personal transformation; understanding who you are, what you are called to do, and how you are to impact the lives of others. In short, manifesting the Kingdom of Heaven, personally and in business.

What is EPIC?

EPIC is a community of business leaders who have a passion to see their cities transformed as they are personally transformed through Kingdom business principles.

TRANSFORM

Challenging the way you think and breaking patterns of limitation.

ACTIVATE

Discovering and learning how to apply your gifts for Kingdom purposes.

CONNECT

Recognizing you can only achieve your God-given destiny with others.

God is raising up a generation of entrepreneurs who want to disrupt the status quo of their cities, empower generations and transform nations.

2019 speakers

Transformation in your business life begins with changing the way you think. Get ready to be provoked, challenged and rewired by this year's speakers.
