HI ECHO FAMILY
At the end of every year we stretch our faith and come together to raise funds for Kingdom causes that advance the message of Jesus and help those in need.
Through these initiatives we’ve been able to start new churches, get foster children into loving homes, fight human trafficking, take the message of Jesus to unreached people groups around the world, and so much more.
Would you prayerfully consider joining us in giving above your regular generosity to the causes outlined here? Let’s make 2020 the most fruitful year yet in the Echo story!

Annual Impact Offering: Crossroads Church
God has miraculously opened a door for us to partner with one of the churches that helped us get started in the Bay Area.
Over the last decade Crossroads of Fremont and Echo.Church have maintained great friendship. We now believe God is leading our two churches to join as one. Crossroads is a healthy church with similar DNA and vision to Echo’s. They currently average 750 people per weekend and are strategically located in the heart of Fremont.
In 2020 our Echo Fremont Campus attendees will move into the current Crossroads of Fremont Campus. This partnership will enable us to combine resources in order to reach and impact more lives for Jesus.
The Annual Impact Offering will provide the initial funding to relaunch the existing Crossroads campus as Echo Crossroads. The relaunch effort will provide momentum for outreach to the local businesses, neighborhoods, and schools as we continue to invest in the East Bay Area.
Annual Impact Offering: NextGen Student Ministry
Our investment in the Next Gen is not only near to the heart of Jesus, it is also critical to the mission of our church. At Echo, we believe that what happens in Next Gen is just as important as what happens in the auditorium on Sunday. If we want to turn the tide spiritually in the Bay Area, it will take more than one generation. We need to build into the future leaders of the Bay Area. If we can capture their hearts now with the love of Jesus, it can change the trajectory of our entire region.
Every summer we take our students away to camp for an extended time of investment, spiritually and relationally. The camp experience is nothing short of life-changing for many students. However, the cost can be quite prohibitive for many students. That is why a portion of the Annual Impact Offering will go toward enabling many more students to participate in an amazing camp experience.
Annual Impact Offering: Sunnyvale Co-Working Space
We have the incredible privilege of building in the heart of Silicon Valley, and a vision to better leverage our space to fill the needs of our community and reach our neighbors. This vision is the transformation of our Sunnyvale facility into a collaborative workspace and cafe. Our hope is to create environments for our community at large to connect and grow in their skills and leadership, and become equipped to better serve the needs of our city.
This annual impact offering will fund the startup costs of this project to improve spaces at the Sunnyvale Campus, upgrade our existing space into a functional cafe and begin promoting the new space to our community.
Annual Impact Offering: Local Church Planting
Over the last 10 years Echo has had the privilege of helping start 15 life-giving Churches. Through this year’s Annual Impact Offering, we’ll be able to financially support even more churches. One of our newest partners is Tekoa Church.
Our heart is to multiply and to invest in the next generation of leaders and we know it takes more than one church to expand God’s Kingdom in the Bay. We are privileged to send out Austin and Allie Anderson this year as they begin the launching process of Tekoa Church.
The vision of Tekoa Church is to develop leaders who will bring transformation in business, their families, and the church. Tekoa wants to see a church in the community west of Downtown San Jose that will bring freedom and hope to those who are searching for meaning in their lives.
Tekoa wants to partner with God as He develops worshippers, warriors and disciple makers in our city. God has already been moving as Tekoa prepares for the launch in 2020.
Annual Impact Offering: Global Outreach
BRAZIL: ORANGE CURRICULUM
Since January 2017, Echo has been leading the charge in taking Orange, the best childdevelopment curriculum used in American churches, to the whole country of Brazil.
Our team at Echo along with the team in Brazil that we fund, has translated more than 22 months of curricula and have now introduced them to Brazilian churches for children ranging from 0 to 11 years old.
The Portuguese Orange Curriculum is now available in 17 of the 25 states of Brazil and every week over 3,350 children are learning biblical values through it.
The Annual Impact Offering will fund the continuation of the translation efforts and expand into even more regions of the country. In the first quarter of 2020, we will be able to launch another curriculum called XP3 for kids/teenagers ranging from 12 to 18 years old.
In 2016, Echo was able to contribute $80,000 to starting a new church in Northern Brazil, in partnership with Compassion International. The funds helped build a facility with 4 classrooms, kitchen, and church auditorium.
Sitios Novos Church is in the second poorest region in Brazil, but has expanded to 7 locations, with over 700 children enrolled in Compassion projects – now receiving education, healthcare, spiritual support, and job training for their families.
One of the new churches started by Sitios Novos Church also hosts a Compassion Project with about 150 children, but they have run out of room.
Through the Annual Impact Offering this year we can be the answer to this church’s prayers. They have been praying daily at 5am for God’s provision for this project and for their community. Our goal is to give them up to $80,000 to complete their church building.
Through our mission trips to visit these churches, we have helped them develop a program that teaches local women how to produce arts and crafts in large quantities. We partnered them with an organization in North Carolina that will be selling everything this community produces, creating income for these families.
Our combined generosity will enable us to deepen our impact globally by investing into our international partners and establishing new partnerships in 2020. By sending financial resources and volunteer teams, we hope to have a bigger global impact than ever before.
