board of directors

  • Nick Martin - Board Chair


    Nick currently serves as a pastor in local church ministry with emphasis on teaching and equipping families in the truth of God's Word. Prior to his current role, Nick has served churches in Missouri and Illinois. 

    He is a graduate of Missouri Baptist University (BA in Christian Ministry), Lindenwood University (MA in Organizational Leadership), and Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MDiv in Biblical Studies), and is currently pursuing further doctoral studies. During his undergraduate work, he spent his summers working alongside indigenous pastors in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia) where he first became aware of human trafficking not only abroad, but in the United States.

    Nick is married to his wife, Brittany, and they have one son. Together, they are a licensed foster care home in the State of Illinois with experience as a specialized home supporting minors with extensive trauma. Furthermore, Nick is a ministry leader and advocate on a local and state level for foster care, adopted children, and survivors of abuse. Ultimately, Nick and his family pray that under God’s enduring guidance, provision, and faithfulness, Eden’s Glory will continue to see survivors restored from the extensive trauma of human trafficking and communities empowered with skills and knowledge to prevent exploitation.

  • Aaron Fritzgerald-TREASURER    

    My name is Aaron. My background is in finance and accounting. I have been in the manufacturing space for 13 years and has worked in the non-profit world for 2 years as the controller for the Free Methodist Church denomination. I have also had various non-profit experience in being on the board of several non-profits over the years providing guidance and fiscal oversight to those organizations.

I have been a involved with Eden’s Glory for a number of years and was able to attend one of the work days before the home opened and laid the carpet in the chapel with my wife. It is a beautiful thing to see how God moves and works in the transformative work that Eden’s Glory does and I am very honor to be a part this work.

  • Ginger Reed

    Owner, Paul Mitchell School St. Louis

    Ginger is co-owner at Paul Mitchell the School St. Louis and a hairstylist at Hollywood Hair in Maryville, IL. As a licensed cosmetologist and licensed instructor, she believes in the power of how one’s inner beauty and outer beauty have a direct correlation to each other.  She has been witness to the transformative affects and impact hairstylists can have on those who sit in their chair, especially when their self worth and confidence is being hindered. Her involvement with Eden’s Glory began by donating salon services to the residents, and has progressed into feeling led to use her experience and background as a leader in her organization to help support and work alongside Eden’s Glory. She wants to help progress the movement, create more awareness, and support raising funds to see the mission of Eden’s Glory grow. Ginger has a heart to serve, and could not think of a better organization to serve alongside… one that is changing and rehabilitating lives through the powerful healing that God provides to the brave and courageous women who trust Eden’s Glory on their road to restoration.

  • RACHEL WAYMAN-secretary

    original task force member

    Rachel is married to Tim Wayman and they have 2 daughters: Brooke, 9 and Alli, 7. She is active in the community serving on the Academic Foundation board and in the parent club at her kids' school.  She completed her undergrad at Greenville University and went on to teach Elementary school aged kids for 4 years in Texas. Rachel and Tim moved back to Greenville in 2011 and she has been staying home raising her kids. Rachel volunteered with Set Free and then later learned more about Eden’s Glory and felt that God was leading her to this ministry. She has been helping Eden’s Glory since 2015 and has served on the board since 2016.



    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!
