EchoCuba is a Christ-centered ministry of Outreach Aid to the Americas and was founded in 1994 to support and help strengthen the national leadership and capacity of the emerging independent Cuban Christian Church, while meeting humanitarian needs in the island.

Guided by Christian faith, EchoCuba is a development ministry that (1) identifies, nurtures, resources, encourages, and develops effective leaders within their own culture; (2) helps the emerging new church community to modernize and build institutional strength, as well as organizational and administrative capacity; (3) develops innovative outreach events that will open doors for the gospel; and (4) creates awareness and provides opportunities through mission trips for individuals and churches in North America.
