The fun is in the Badlands

Badlands Ministries holds a variety of year round events that are packed with fun for all ages.

Public Christ Hike

Badlands Ministries 40th Annual Fall event will be held at Badlands Ministries this year.  We decided to make some changes this year to ensure the safety of or participants while doing our best to keep the elements in tact of what has made this event so fun and successful all these years.  

We will have an open air lunch and live auction.  We will also have both our silent auction and live auction take place on-line as well.
