“It’s important for me to have fellowship with other Christians,” said Jenny Mun, co-founder of Epic Movement, a new Christian club on campus. The club is a Chapter of Epic Movement, a non-church affiliated, nation-wide Christian organization. Cypress College’s Epic Movement meets Fridays at noon in HUM 105.
Mun describes the new club as a “place where broken people can heal through the gospel of Jesus Christ.” An English major, Mun’s favorite book is Psalms, and her favorite verse—the verse that brought her into Christ—is Revelation 21:6, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.”
Esther Kim, Kinesiology major, is another co-founder of Cypress College’s Epic Movement. Kim heard about the organization after serendipitously attending an Epic Conference on the West Coast. She describes a typical meeting as: icebreakers, announcements, speaker and short message, and bible study. Esther Kim’s favorite book is (incidentally) Esther, because “it’s about a girl who stands up for what she believes.”
Mun and Kim urge all Cypress students to join the club. “We’re open to non-believers. We are accepting, encouraging, loving,” Mun said.
When asked why she felt the need to start a Christian club, Kim said, “ I see a need for the Body of Christ on campus. I feel like people here are uninspired. Heads in the dirt. We’re here because we want to lift people.”
