EPIC Church International, formerly Faith Fellowship Ministries World Outreach Center is an independent non-denominational Christian megachurch in Sayreville, New Jersey, USA. The pastor is John J. Wagner.[1] As of 2013, Outreach Magazine ranked the church 44th in congregation size in the USA, with weekly attendance of 10,100.[2]


David T. Demola founded Faith Fellowship Ministries in early 1980, and by the end of that year was able to move from a private home to St. Mark’s United Methodist Church in Staten Island, New York. The growing congregation temporarily held services at an Elks Club, and then in July 1982 moved to a former synagogue in Iselin, New Jersey. Still growing, in mid-1985 the church moved into a newly constructed 1,300-seat facility in Edison, New Jersey, its base for the next fifteen years. However, overflow crowds and limited parking created tensions with neighbors.[3]

In July 2000 the current 2,900-seat auditorium and office complex was established on a 14-acre (57,000 m2) site in Sayreville that was once used by Public Service Electric and Gas Company as a training center. The site was selected in part because it already had sufficient parking space, a significant factor with urban megachurches.[4] In 2003 the center launched a homeownership program through its nonprofit affiliate, the Faith Fellowship Community Development Corporation, which provides education and coaching in financial planning.[5]

On January 1, 2019, the church announced on its website and social media pages its transition to EPIC Church International.[6]
