At Echo, we don’t just receive hope and leave it there, but we want to take the hope that God has built into our lives into our communities and across the Bay Area. We’re inviting everyone at Echo to serve not just once, but to experience the joy of consistently investing in uplifting others in your local communities.  Invite a friend, or your small group, to join you!
