Eli Badje is a recent graduate from Chadron State College and is presently interning with Ridgeview. He has been a part of Ridgeview since his family moved to the Hay Springs area when he was in middle school; he is so thankful to be serving the body of believers that he has grown to know as family. Currently, Eli is taking graduate classes online through Liberty University and studying Christian Ministry. Eli wishes to use this intern experience to further pursue his passion of pointing young adults to Christ through spending time outdoors and hosting events with involve food, movies, and games.

In his free time, Eli enjoys doing anything outside including hunting, fishing, kayaking, bike riding, running, hiking, camping, snowboarding, and so many other activities. After the internship, he plans to pursue the Lord’s calling on his life to pursue missions or ministry with the hopeful emphasis on showing people the wonder of God’s creation in his ministry through personal experiences and outdoor adventures.
