Over the years, I've met hundreds of people who are quietly changing the world. They live stories of sacrifice, risk, and heartfelt love. But many of them at times feel alone — struggling for support as they pour themselves out.
We wanted to celebrate the unsung heroes all over the globe who are making a difference. The Oscars, the Golden Globes, the CMA's — all these nights celebrated people who have given their all to their industry. Why couldn't we do the same for people advancing the kingdom of God? That thought led to the start of the Epoch Awards.
Epoch exists to celebrate those unsung heroes that quietly change the world day-by-day. Those people who have given their lives, resources, and callings to further the gospel and be the hands and feet of Jesus. Epoch honors the unsung heroes; the people who cross the street or the world to serve where poverty, drought, HIV/AIDS, sex trafficking, homelessness, and fear reign.
For these heroes, this is more than doing a good deed — this is life.
We've put together a red carpet celebration at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theater. We give away awards totaling $50,000 to honor and fund the ministries of our heroes.
The evening will offer both celebration and challenge for all of us to address universal problems in unique and meaningful ways that dignify and set people free. It will be a night to remember. A little glimpse of heaven as we say "well done" to the faithful servants of our generation. But before they can have that night, we need you to nominate your heroes.
You know the people giving it all to further the kingdom of Jesus Christ. We want to celebrate your heroes, but we can only do that if we know who they are.
Please help someone who you know needs the help. Take a minute to fill out the form. There are only a few days left, so we need you to take the time to nominate now. The video above shows the kind of impact you may have when you take the time to nominate.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
