Echo Community Church was born in 2011. The hope and vision for Echo was to provide an active, community-focused congregation serving the Perry Hall and White Marsh communities of northeast Baltimore.
In September 2012, Phil and Kendra Knauer accepted the invitation to relocate from South Atlanta and return home to Baltimore to serve as pastors at Echo Community Church. In January of 2015, Echo enthusiastically embraced a three-year vision plan to position ourselves to secure a permanent home for our ministry in the Perry Hall / White Marsh area.
In June of 2018, Echo was planted by TrinityLife as a sovereign church by receiving General Council affiliation status with the Assemblies of God.
For a time, Echo was a permanent congregation in a temporary home. Our dedicated team of volunteers unloaded the contents of a fully functional, modern church from our trailer into our worship venue to set up church every Sunday.
In 2020, we celebrated the dedication of our first Ministry Center and new home at 5020 Campbell Blvd in White Marsh.
In our short history, we’ve worshipped in a movie theatre, a hotel ballroom, a convention center, a high school, and a campground. As we’ve grown, God has blessed us with our present home!
We are trusting God as He leads us into the next steps of ministering to our local community in White Marsh and beyond.
