In June of 2018, Echo was planted by TrinityLife as a sovereign church by receiving General Council affiliation status with the Assemblies of God.
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. From the beginning, Echo has very much been a mobile church.
We are a permanent congregation in a temporary home. Our dedicated team of volunteers unloads the contents of a fully functional, modern church from our trailer into our worship venue to set up church every Sunday.
In our short history, we’ve worshipped in a movie theatre, a hotel ballroom, a convention center, and a campground. As we’ve grown, God has blessed us with our present home at Perry Hall High School.
In September 2012, Phil and Kendra Knauer accepted the invitation to relocate from South Atlanta and return home to Baltimore, serving as our Pastor 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.
