What is EDEN?
Eden Team brings transformation to Vancouver's Downtown Eastside community - from the inside out.
Eden teams make their homes in deprived neighbourhoods, sharing their lives and the gospel.
Aspiration and achievement grow as people become disciples of Jesus.
The culture shifts as leaders are raised and communities are changed for good.
You can make a difference!
Eden is an urban missions strategy run under the leadership of Coastal Church to help reach those hurting in our community
Sacrifice, Gospel, Community.
Joining Eden means choosing to invest your life serving Jesus in underprivileged places, like Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Though it comes with a great cost, there is great joy found in being a community on mission together.
Thank you for prayerfully supporting our team!
