In 1985 Father Bob Bryan, Rector of the Church of the Transfiguration in Evergreen Colorado suggested that parishioners start and outreach program to help local people who were in need of basic food, clothing, shelter and fuel. In 1986, two members of Evergreen Fellowship joined efforts with the Church of the Transfiguration. The Church of the Transfiguration offered a building in which to house the program. After several months the program had grown to the point where a full-time position was created to direct the efforts of the numerous volunteers and the local churches. Today, most of the churches and many local businesses support this ongoing ministry. Over the past 30 years Evergreen Christian Outreach has grown and continues to meet the needs of mountain area including Evergreen, Kittredge, Indian Hills, Idledale and Conifer.
