A Picture of ‘Pure Religion’: How One Pastor’s Family and Church are Helping Local Foster Kids

Chuck and Monica Evans have adopted five children, including a sibling group of four toddlers last June. They lead their small-town-Texas church, where Chuck pastors, in local foster care ministry. And they’re starting a nonprofit to help even more kids — their goal is 1 million.

Are they special? Not if you ask them. They’re just following the mandate in James 1:27.
