Children of the Promise was introduced to Evan at a very young age through his parents involvement in the ministry. He spent a lot of time reading newsletters and keeping up with everything that was happening at Children of the Promise. Evan was able to go on his first mission trip to Haiti in 2011 that was led by COTP’s current Development Director, Kirk Vander Pol. Ever since experiencing COTP and Haiti, Evan has been involved with the ministry in many different capacities. He was able to take more trips down to Haiti, and his parents also adopted two daughters from COTP. All of these experiences have allowed Evan to continue to gain a better understanding of Haiti and the work of COTP. Evan served as a volunteer stateside and on the ground in Haiti, and in 2014 he was able to work as an intern under Jamie Groen. The following year, Evan was hired on as a part time employee to oversee special projects. Since January of 2016, Evan has started working full time in Volunteer & Donor Relations.
