Our Vision: To make it easy for students to turn to God

ECHO exists to reach students with the life-changing message of Jesus, to help them belong to an authentic community, and to grow deeper in faith and service.

Our Mission: To equip students to echo the heart and life of Jesus

By making it easy for students to turn to God through engaging and relevant environments and experiences, we are able to equip students to take their next step in echoing the heart and life of Jesus. We accomplish this by creating environments where students can prioritize their relationship with God, positively influence their friends and experience personal ministry.

One definition of the word echo is “a close parallel or repetition of an idea, feeling, style, or event.” We simply desire to help students take their next step in making their heart and life a close parallel or repetition of that of Jesus’ heart and life. We want to see students grow in their love for God and in their love for other people.

Ephesians 4:15 states, “…we will hold to the truth in love, becoming more and more in every way like Christ…” (NLT)
When a student’s life is a close parallel or repetition of Christ’s life, positively impacting those around them, they are having the “Echo Effect” we desire to see students have.
