Who We Are

20s & 30s was created for young people at Reach to experience real faith, friendship and fun.

If you’re anything like us, you’re used to your friends coming and going around here. In this transient region, it often feels like you’re starting over — and starting over alone. We’re exhausted trying to figure out who we are and where we’re going — all while trying to find our people. It seems like we’ll never not feel behind.

Amidst it all, it’s hard to care about following Jesus. At work and at home — the inadequacy, comparison, and anxiety all compete for our attention and distract us from what really matters. Culture is often dragging us away from exactly where Jesus wants us to go. How do we pursue real faith instead of settling for the bare minimum just to get by? What’s the point? Is it even worth it? In 2023, we need real faith and friendship more than ever.

So that’s what Reach 20s & 30s is going after: real fulfillment in Jesus, and real belonging with one another.

Who We’re For
  • You’re between the ages of 21-35(ish)
  • You’re not looking for a family ministry with childcare.
  • 20s & 30s feels like the right fit for you. (If the focus of 20s & 30s doesn’t match your season of life, we have many other ministries, events, and Groups at Reach dedicated to other seasons of life that may serve you well. Feel free to opt in or out of 20s & 30s based on your current needs.)

We gather twice a month for Outings + Gatherings

1st + 3rd Tuesdays — 7:00-9:00pm

1st Tuesday: Outings

  • Expect a casual night of hangs and activities that are like, actually fun. Most of these events will be held somewhere other than the Reach Offices.

3rd Tuesday: Gatherings

  • Expect worship and testimony, a guest or panel addressing a relevant topic to 20s & 30s, and a time in smaller groups to discuss and reflect. More fun always follows these nights at the After Party.

OUR VALUES + GOALS

Faith — Consistent, bold pursuit of authentic love for Jesus.

Friendship — Like-minded Jesus-followers to walk through life and faith with.

Fun — Simple time spent together around food for joy and memories.

Hey there! I’m Kelsey.

HELLO! If you’re reading this, I genuinely hope we get to meet! I get to currently express my love for God through serving young adults (20s & 30s), Reach Interns, and college students. THE DREAM.

I’m passionate about pastoring, teaching, writing, dreaming up ideas, equipping, and mobilizing people to get into the Scriptures and live on mission. I’ve led college students since 2014 while working for The INN college ministry (2017-2021), serving as a missionary on The World Race (2016-2017), and earning my Masters through my graduate studies at Seattle University (M.Ed in Student Development Administration, 2016). I started at Reach in July 2021, and I feel so honored to call this place home!

Other fun facts: I was born and raised in Orange County, CA, I have Celiac’s disease (gluten-free foodie!), I’m a proud Azusa Pacific University (’14) grad, and I love adventures (traveling, skiing, camping, hiking, + playing monopoly deal).
