Kids_Hope_USA_LogoKIDS HOPE USA is a mentoring program that equips a church to build a partnership with a neighboring public elementary school by providing faithful mentors to build a relationship focused on a child’s emotional, social, and academic needs.
The result: Changes in attitude, behavior, and academic performance.

One child, one hour is the heart of KIDS HOPE USA.
One caring adult mentoring a child for one hour every week during the school year can result in huge impact. Because when kids feel like they belong, they are better able to learn, grow, and succeed.

Evergreen Ministries partners with Bauerwood Elementary School in Jenison.  Mentors are screened and trained by the Kids Hope USA Director and supported each week in prayer by volunteer Pray Partners.

If you would like to be part of this successful and rewarding ministry, contact Director Chris Vredevoogd at or by calling the church office at 669-7700
