Echoes International is a mission organisation, committed to supporting new models of mission and connecting people with the needs of mission today:
- We support mission workers, sent by their commending churches, through the entirety of their mission journey
- We inspire people in the UK to get involved in mission, through our events, monthly mission magazine, website, social media and prayer update emails
- In conjunction with GLO and Counties, we encourage young people aged from around 18 to 25 years to explore mission, through the FirstServe gap year programme.
We support around 185 mission workers serving in over 29 countries, with finance, pastoral care and advice. These mission workers associated with Echoes International serve in a variety of ways, including: evangelism, discipleship training, church planting, student ministry, prison work, medical, support of marginalised people, youth and children’s ministries and leadership training. We also encourage people to consider short-term mission opportunities to serve.
Through an increased focus on digital platforms, we encourage people to get involved in mission. We provide weekly prayer emails, advertise short and long-term opportunities to serve, publish stories, articles, blogs, videos and podcasts on our website and interact with people on various social media platforms.
The generosity of God’s people enables mission workers to carry out the Great Commission. We do not deduct Echoes International operational costs or associated fees from any gifts for mission workers or projects, although many of our donors also provide a gift towards our costs at the same time, to sustain our ability to process gifts in this way.
Historical Note: Echoes International was formed by a merger of Echoes of Service and Interlink in 2018.
