We offer several opportunities to get involved in a small group as a student. We have groups that meet during service on Sundays, and we also offer Dteams in which groups meet on a more flexible schedule. These groups are a great opportunity to engage in fellowship and discipleship.
If you are a student looking to get plugged in with Echo, email one of the pastors at the bottom of this page.
Be present: show up predictably, show up mentally and show up randomly
Create a safe place: lead the group, respect the process and guard the heart
Partner with parents: cue the parents, honor the parents and reinforce the family of our students
Make it personal: live in community, set priorities and be real to our students
Move them out: move them to someone else, move them to be the church and move them to what is next
