For nearly 30 years, Echoes has been one of the most widely used resources in the African-American Church, featuring culturally relevant topics and African-American imagery for today’s adults.
Life Application Focus
Echoes promotes community among other adults, and challenges them to continue growing spiritually, pushing them to apply every lesson to their own lives in a meaningful way.
