The Rev. Linda Brown, Pastor
I have been blessed to be the pastor at Eden since 2011. I graduated from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg in 2011. I have two sons, one daughter-in-law, and two grandsons that live in Orange County.
David Christensen, Organist
I began my career as a church organist while in high school. On Sunday morning I played for the First Christian Church in Selma, CA, and on Sunday evening for the First Baptist Church.
In 1998 I was appointed organist and handbell director at Eden Lutheran Church in Riverside, and after several years also became the Director of Music.
During this time, it has been an honor to work with the congregation and talented musicians of the church. I have given several organ recitals on the fine Moller pipe organ. Click here to hear David’s music.

My husband and I have been married 8 years and we have two wonderful children, Michael(6) and Edie(4) who have both attended Eden Lutheran Pre-school. I enjoy the work I get to do for the church and school and look forward to many more years here!
Dar Keaneman, Preschool Director
