Damont Drake




Pastor Damont and his family came to Eden in 1999 from Kentucky.  He is married to Kathie, whom he met while at Cumberland College where they both graduated.  They have two children, Derrick and Dana, and four grandsons.  Damont enjoys fishing and golfing. 


Our pastor has a passion for communicating God's timeless truths. Perhaps his preaching style can best be described as Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered, and practical.  He seeks to teach the entire counsel of God through sermons and Wednesday night Bible Studies.

Zeb Bishop

Associate Pastor



Pastor Zeb came to Eden in 2016. He grew up in the Citrus/ Hernando county area and graduated from Citrus High School in 1998. He is married to Crystal, his high school sweetheart. He has two boys, Logan and Kyler. Zeb enjoys hunting, fishing and woodworking.


Zeb has been in minstry for 15 years, 9 of which he traveled with The Strength Team, an evangelistic ministry. He has a heart for students and is passionate about helping them grow into a more intimate relationship with Christ. Zeb says, "I want our students to be able to defend their faith based on what they believe, not what they have been told." He teaches our students through service projects and object lessons, by applying what the Bible says to the students' lives.
