Filipe Santos

Lead Pastor

Last fall, we embarked on an exciting, two-year discipleship and generosity journey called the One Life Initiative. Our primary goal was to engage every person in the Echo community in taking steps to grow spiritually and stretch their faith.

Throughout the first half of our journey, we had over 2,000 households at Echo given towards Kingdom initiatives through One Life.

We are so deeply proud of you, Echo Family, for taking steps of obedience and following God’s leading.

Together, we are projecting $22.7 million (out of our goal of $25 million) over two years through One Life. That was our secondary goal: to provide financial resources to advance God’s Kingdom, through fueling the areas God is for – He is for the Church, for the next generation, for the one who is lost and broken, and He is for the future!

As we approach the midpoint of this two-year initiative, the impact has been amazing. I am confident that God is being honored, His Kingdom is advancing, and our hearts and lives are being enriched and blessed.

Wherever you are in this journey, there is a place for you — and we need you — to cross the One Life finish line together with 100% engagement and meet our $25 million goal.

I invite you to pray about your role in One Life — whether by joining this vision God has given us with a first-time commitment, staying strong in your current commitment, or by expanding your commitment.

We believe that when you make the Kingdom of God your primary concern… that’s when you unlock God’s greatest blessings. That’s when you have unexplainable peace and joy. That’s when you get to see God do incredible things, as you open your heart and hands to let Him use your one life for the things that matter most!

Thank you for your generosity and for the countless ways you have continued to invest into life transformation and eternal impact. Let’s continue leaning into how God wants us to make our One Life count!

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Matthew 6:33

for Good Series

In a world of one-hit wonders and fleeting results, we all want to make a positive difference that doesn’t just come and go… but that actually lasts for the long run.

But how do we actually do that? What does it look like to use our lives to create ripple effects that don’t fade away… but end up making waves that continue on for generations?

Join us Sundays, from October 16 to November 6, for a four-week teaching series called Here For Good.

Together, we will explore how to use our lives to transform the lives of others — not just for now… but for good.

In what ways could I be more strategic and intentional in how I influence others?

(2 Corinthians 8:1-7)

(Acts 20:24-25, 35)

Secondary Goal

$25M Kingdom Advancement

(December 2021 – December 2023)

Just as water droplets create a movement of outward ripples, our one life can drastically impact thousands of lives and communities all across the Bay Area — and around the world.

This is a two-year journey of stretching our faith and investing boldly into advancing the Kingdom of God. During these two years, together we’re fueling the things we are FOR:

FOR the Church

$16 Million

Leading people to say YES to Jesus and passionately follow Him through the ongoing ministry and operations at Echo.Church (our annual two-year operating budget).

FOR the One

$3 Million

Serving communities in need and sharing God’s love locally, regionally, and globally through Echo Compassion.


$3 Million

Investing in and developing the next generation of kids and students.


$3 Million

Expanding and improving our campuses, spaces, and other opportunities to better reach those who are far from God.

What God Has Done

Here’s just a glimpse of some ways God has moved through your investment and prayers since the launch of our One Life Initiative:

Where We Are Going

The vision God set in our hearts is in reach! He has been so good to us, and we believe He is continuing to grow our ripple effect, fuelled by the generosity of His people.

As each of us surrenders at a deeper level, we will see our collective efforts continuing to make an impact — both locally and globally — for God’s eternal purposes!

What’s Your Role?

Throughout the challenges of the past few years, God has done amazing things for us and through us to our community and the world! He’s given us every reason to trust Him, and our response is to honor Him with our first and our best.

“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.”

Proverbs 3:9–10

How is God Leading You?


Join more than 2,000 households as together we put our faith in a limitless God — and make a 12-month commitment towards fueling the One Life Initiative.


Have you made a commitment already? We encourage you to put your faith into action and obey God’s leading — by making a commitment to finish strong.


How might God be stretching you to take an additional step of faith in your generosity? We invite you to respond to how God may be leading you to increase your commitment toward the things He is for.
