BEHIND THE NAME
Eden was perfect. There was nothing separating God and man: no sin, no shame, no fear. In the garden, Adam and Eve were their truest selfs; they knew God and were fully known by God and walked with Him in the cool of day (Genesis 3:8). We believe we were all created for eden: the place of full communion with God, where there’s nothing separating us from Him and we become fully who we were made to be. Our hope is that through our lives and ministry, we would bring you back to your eden and inspire you to live wholehearted and intentional lives.

After graduating, he became a JH/HS technology teacher and then transitioned to being a church Tech Director. When Zion was born, Luke stepped down from his full time position to focus on being a father and husband while also building Created for Eden to pursue what he is most passionate about – inspiring others to live intentionally.
