Echoes International – Together with Joy
Together with Joy
God, who sent His Son into this world, now sends His Church to proclaim Jesus as Lord and Saviour, to all nations and peoples. Into this task, God calls all His people to be His witnesses, but, in each generation, He has raised up His servants who are specially called to this work. They serve in many roles, using a variety of skills and in very different circumstances, but their ultimate goal is to proclaim God’s love in Christ and to demonstrate this through loving service in Jesus’ Name.
Echoes International is a mission service organisation, assisting mission partners, commended and sent by local churches, and encouraging more Christians to get involved in serving and supporting mission.
A heritage of over 150 years in supporting mission and established links with churches and individuals means we can connect more people with the needs of mission today. We are committed to challenging preconceptions and barriers to mission and sharing opportunities to get involved in mission, from short to long term, at home and abroad. Together with joy, we can serve the Lord, as we ‘go and make disciples of all nations’ (Matt 28: 19).
