  • 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 I'm grateful to walk alongside survivors every day. Come, let us tell you so so many stories!

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 leads us with a high standard, and with God's help and grace, to focus on the women and their pursuit of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and relational restoration.

While attending SIUE he continued to learn about trafficking at conferences like Passion and involvement in local government. Shortly after college, God called CJ to live on mission and led him to Eden’s Glory. The Lord has given him a servant leader mindset and he is excited to apply that in fighting the last front of slavery.  On the weekends, you can find him hanging out with his dog, fishing, or DJing at different venues in the metro east area.

  • Meghan, LCSW

    Clinical Director: Eden's Glory and Foster Kairos

Moving forward her studies and research were focused in on this area while figuring out where God was leading. She earned a Bachelor's in Sociology from Samford University in 2016 and Master's in Social Work with a Marriage and Family Therapy Certification from the University of Georgia in 2019. Meghan is excited to walk alongside these wonderful women in their healing process.

  • 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 a human trafficking awareness page. Charity recognized 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.

  • Haven

    Respite Staff


    Haven first learned about human trafficking in 2012 during a retreat where Annie led a discussion group. She grew up watching Annie and Ginger do their thing, and in 2017 she met Kevin Austin, director of the Set Free movement, through Free Methodist Bible Quizzing. All of these factors led her to develop a passion for ending human trafficking. In college she helped build a safe home for survivors of trafficking. In 2018, she spent a month in Brazil with the Global Honors Program at Roberts Wesleyan College. The program centered around freedom in Rochester and the world. This experience created a springboard for Haven's passion on a larger scale. Haven currently works as a nurse and hopes to one day open up her own safe home. For now, she is hoping to become a certified Intuitive Eating Counselor to better serve the women at EG in their healing process.
