We are passionate, not passive

Culture is a large part of any organization’s DNA. Great leaders leverage their influence to identify, inform, and inspire contagious culture within their organization. Below is a description of one of our cultural values at Epic Church.

We are passionate, not passive.

We are passionate in our posture and our perspective.

Our passionate posture: We lean in. We’re expectant. We’re fully engaged. We come early and sit close.

We’re not waiting for a move of God – WE ARE a move of God.


Our passionate perspective: We do what we do with enthusiasm. We’re not apathetic or indifferent. We care. A lot. We bring our energy. We lift our voices.

Throughout Scripture, we’re encouraged to do what we do with enthusiasm: serve, work, love, give, worship…and then in Romans 12:11, Paul says, “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.”

We’re called by God to be enthusiastic people.

In fact, the word enthusiasm comes from two Greek words: en theos = God within.


We are thermostats, not thermometers.

A thermometer just reflects the temperature of the room. A thermostat changes the temperature.

That’s what we do.

We are passionate, not passive.
