We have a message to share – a free gift of eternal salvation.

What an opportunity we have to be able to have a school like Evergreen to share and encourage our teens in the PNW through Christian education. This is no small task, there are many jobs and expenses needed to run this ministry. By God’s grace and your help, we are able to do wonderful things together at Evergreen. If you have any questions, I would be happy to meet with you to discuss them. Below you will see a list of ways you can get involved and support our students. Again, we are so happy you share our passion for Christian education and the need our society has for it. I hope to talk with you soon on how we can find a new way to partner together.

Show Your Support Through Giving

Evergreen gives you the ability to make regularly scheduled offerings or one-time gifts through our online donation service. You have the choice to have this offering withdrawn from your checking account, savings account, or a credit card. This secure service is provided with reasonable processing fees that Evergreen pays and is fully tax deductible. 100% of your donation goes toward educating Evergreen’s children.
