Reverberating throughout the hills of Cincinnati,
the clashing sounds of the city harmonize to the tune of humanity.

Despite the chaos of the urban lifestyle,
city dwellers move to an inaudible rhythm—
a beat that many don’t realize even exists.

There is a soundtrack to their lives;
it’s a song that makes sense of everything.

It’s the voice of God.

He sings. He loves. He cares.

And we’re here to echo his message.



As humans made in the likeness of God, we are blessed with the ability to create. God longs to hear our originality. We celebrate and develop our creativity during times of corporate worship and daily life. Our creativity extends beyond Echo as we intend to create new churches to reach many other communities with the message of Jesus. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” [Genesis 1:1]



 Technological advances have given our society the opportunity to become the most connected civilization the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, people are still lonelier than they've ever been. We break down the walls of isolation to bring people together, churches, and communities together. Echo is a place where people can come interact with people on a similar journey through life. “He calls His own by name and leads them out.” [John 10:3]



The tendency for some churches is to become inwardly focused, forsaking the calling that God has given his followers. We are missionaries, appointed to contextualize the message of Jesus in an ever-changing world. As the Father sent the Son, so has the Son sent us to enter the harvest field to seek and save the lost. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them . . . and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” [Matthew 28:19,20]

We embrace where God has put us


After the Second World War, millions of Americans flocked from cities, and American Christianity became linked with a suburban lifestyle. As people continue to rediscover the beauty of the city and return here, we desperately need churches to reach those people for Christ. While Echo is one of many Christian communities passionate about urban Cincinnati, we center our ministry in the Walnut Hills community. We are a metro church with a neighborhood focus. “For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.” [Hebrews 13:14]
