OUR STAFF

Joining our team means entering a community of dedicated professionals who quickly become family.

  • Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director


    My name is Ginger, I am humbled that God called me to lead something like this. Eden’s Glory is an act of courage and obedience, EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. It is also an honor to have a front row seat to the transforming power and grace of God. In 2010 I was completely unaware that slavery still existed. When I heard, I devoured information from statistics to documentaries, to narrative accounts. I was heart broken at the reality. I was angered by the injustice, and I was CALLED to do something about it. So I quit my job, moved to Illinois, got married, bought a house, had a baby, and started a ministry all in the same year. Crazy! We have been open since September 2015 and have served 7 women so far. Come, let us tell you so so many stories!

  • ANNIE SCHOMAKER, LCSW

    Co-Founder and Co- Executive Director


    Annie is a licensed clinical social worker with vast experience of casework, counseling, and training in her field. In 2004, God moved her heart to fight for the broken, the enslaved, and challenge systemic injustices and she has never turned back. Annie is the co-founder and lead program developer for Eden's Glory. MANY hours of learning, research, networking, writing, revising, wrestling, creativity, heart, and PRAYER have been given to the creation of a two-year treatment program for survivors of human trafficking. Annie will lead the program, with God's help and grace, to focus on the women and their pursuit of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and relational restoration.

  • Charity

    Director of Housing


    Charity's background is in finance and social services with youth, but she sensed God's call to anti-trafficking work during her time as a student at Liberty University; specifically for awareness, rescue, and aftercare. She is just a few classes shy of completing a Bachelors in Criminal Justice with a cognate in Juvenile Justice & a Bachelors in Homeland Security. While living in South America on outreach with victims and survivors God did awesome things in her life and she returned to the US with renewed strength, and passion and she launched an human trafficking awareness page. Charity recognizes God's direction in her life & that included Eden's Glory as the next place for her to join in God's work, to serve with a team of like-minded individuals who fight for the same cause - complete freedom, which is only possible through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Charity is adventurous, enjoys traveling, competitive game nights with family & friends, writing poetry and visiting her favorite parks.

Holly is our Volunteer Coordinator and Case Manager for Women’s Health.


  • Meghan, MSW

  • MISSY

    Respite House Manager


    Missy is a 2016 grad from Greenville College, receiving Social Work and Urban Ministries degrees. Her senior year of high school, Missy read a book which gave a glimpse of the life of the men, women and children in slavery today. Since then, the Lord has grown the desire to aid in the restoration of those who have been affected by modern day slavery. She is excited to join the Eden's Glory team! Missy loves to explore the outdoors, create art, spend time in conversation and hopes to provide similar engaging experiences for the women at Eden's Glory. She believes laughter heals, so wants to spread joy as often as possible to the staff and residents at Eden's. She encourages "firsts" as much as possible. That might be a first time skating on ice, or first time eating the core of an apple! But "firsts" bring joy; and Missy is all about joy!
