  • Co-Founder

    Director of Operations

    Grant Writer

    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.

    Volunteer Coordinator

    Resident Assistant

    On my first mission trip in 2012 is when I learned about the reality of modern-day slavery. I was completely devastated. Since then, I have always had a heart for survivors and to educate others on the realness of trafficking. I have always had the call on my life to love others and disciple them. It’s one of the best callings in my opinion! Through prayer and God's guidance, it has led me to come and work with the amazing team at Eden’s Glory! Fun fact: I lived in Southern India for a year-long mission trip!


    Resident Assistant

    Amber felt a call to ministry and passion for social work in her early teen years, but in her sophomore year of college she discovered her clear calling to work in the anti-trafficking field. She is especially passionate about her work here at Eden's Glory because she gets to fight courageously with a team where Jesus remains the center. Amber is currently pursuing her Masters in Social Work. Fun fact: Amber is one of twelve siblings!

  • Patsy

    Resident Assistant

    I first became aware of Human Trafficking around 2010 when Annie came and shared at our home church in Colorado. Until that time, I held the belief that trafficking was mostly in foreign countries. I was shocked, burdened, and grieved to learn of the impact right here in the United States. The Lord gave me a clear calling to walk alongside these strong survivors as they learn a new way of life and become healthy emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I am excited to be part of this amazing team of godly women who walk by faith one step at a time. Fun fact: I have 5 beautiful adult children and 14 amazing grandchildren!

Lorna has a passion for ethical purchasing and is a go-to for all things ethically sourced and fair trade. When not creating computery content, she can be found reading (preferably in a hammock), singing, or in the bowels of her community theater working on the next production.

  • Winda, EG Graduate

    My name is Winda, I am a survivor of human trafficking from the age of 4 until age 25.
