Reflections from Echo Catalysts

Echo, our youth ministry for 7th-12th graders, has a team of student leaders who commit themselves to taking on a bigger role in Echo. They are called Echo Catalysts and they serve as role models for the rest of the students. Through sacrificial contributions of time and talent, they model servant leadership, hospitality and commitment to the broader Echo community. They agree to welcome others, participate in discipleship, live out God’s story and ultimately be the body of Christ. Though COVID has put a twist on things, the Catalysts have continued to show up through consistent attendance and participation on Echo’s live stream. As they look back on this year and their time with Echo, they remember what they’ve learned and how much they’ve grown. Read More

"I am a podrishioner that just wanted to say thanks for sharing Woodland Hills through podcasts and videos. This is my place to get a spiritual refill, and it’s where I get most of my teaching from. Since I've starting following you four years ago, my view on God, myself and other people has radically been changed. Thanks so much, and keep sharing the Kingdom!"

– Knut-Inge, from Norway
