KELSEY RICE BOGDAN
Kelsey Rice Bogdan (she/her/hers), a Life Together fellow from 2009-2010, has served on Life Together's staff since 2015. Kelsey is passionate about the ways in which God is calling the Church to be a prophetic voice of transformation in the 21st century, and has sought to build up that movement through a variety of young adult ministry and leadership development roles. Following her year as a fellow, Kelsey worked for nearly five more years in the Stewardship Office at her site placement, Trinity Church in the City of Boston. In addition, she was one of the founding board members of the Boston Food Justice Young Adult Volunteer program in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Kelsey’s commitment to young adult ministry began as an intern with the National Network of Presbyterian College Women in Louisville, KY.
Born and raised in Virginia, Andrew has quickly come to love calling North Carolina home. Prior to moving to Raleigh, he graduated from James Madison University with a degree in social work. He continued his studies at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. while also serving as an associate pastor of a growing northern Virginia church. It was during that time that he and his wife Kelly felt called to a year of full-time volunteer service, which they completed together in 2015-16 in Houston, Texas. The experience had a tremendous impact on their lives, and Andrew loves having the opportunity to journey with Johnson Service Corps members during their own years of service.
