As a lifelong Lutheran, Kelsey has a passion for being the hands and feet of Christ in the community and abroad, and has been a part of mission trips to Mexico and all along the Eastern US coast. He has worked with youth and adults to help them grow in their faith, learn more about Christ and each other, and serve those in need.
Kelsey enjoys learning new things, trying different food & drinks, and science education. His hobbies include tabletop gaming, mycology, woodworking, lexicography, and comic books.
