Who We Are
Echos of Faith is a non-denominational, multi-cultural church. Our services are energetic, creative, life-giving and inviting. On any given week, there are around 800 people that come thru our doors and we believe that every number represents a story. The worship experience is planned well in advance to enhance the themes and topics to be discussed. Our music is diverse, relevant, cutting edge stylistically, sometimes incredibly simple and at other times complex. Ultimately we want the worship experience to be engaging and inviting so that the attenders participate and genuinely connect with God. Music needs to move people so that they receive the spoken message. Being innovative in our approach is a core value. We believe that we’re responsible to bring excellence to the Worship Experience every week.
