Eli is a part of the band Good Friday as bassist
Having grown up in church and being saved at a young age, Eli felt like he always had some understanding of the importance of the Gospel. It wasn’t until Eli was around 13, though, that he was given multiple serving opportunities within his youth group and started to see the whole picture of God and His heart. Eli began to see that following Christ is just as much about doing as it is knowing about him.
Back when Good Friday was founded by Eli and Dawson in 2014, the band was made up of just a couple kids trying to cope with the world through music. Eli always appreciated music with meaning and strived to write songs that connect with people on a personal level and share his experiences honestly. Joining A Jesus Mission, Good Friday’s goal is to write and play music that reaches both Christian and non-Christian audiences, establishes connections based upon mutual struggles, and points others toward Christ.
