Shanxi Evergreen Service


Shanxi Evergreen Service seeks to be a part of China’s holistic development through
the locally appropriate use of our professional skills. Our passion is to impact the lives of Chinese people and, through working together with them, to see China blessed.

We welcome you to explore our website and learn more about Evergreen and our work!

Our Work

Invited into Shanxi Province by the local government to help with social and economic needs, Evergreen’s founders immediately began investigating what those needs were and the most locally appropriate ways to respond to each.  What evolved are several areas of professional service in which Evergreeners now serve based on the needs of the community in which they live.


Every few years, the Evergreen field staff in China holds a planning meeting to determine whether or not the current professional service areas meet the ongoing needs of the local communities and redefine them as needed.  These professional service areas then help determine our need for additional team members, as well as help us focus on projects that will best serve each community into the future.  We currently serve in three locations in Shanxi Province, through eight identified areas of professional service:

Medical Work and Rehabilitation
