The Frank and Betty Evans Mission Fund was established by a generous endowment gift to Christ UMC from the estate of Frank and Betty Evans. The Evans were generous members of the Christ UMC congregation for many years and gave sacrificially to God and the Church from their gratitude for his blessings. They have entrusted the church leadership to direct their funds responsibly.

- Poverty Homelessness

- Hunger
