About Drew & Jess

Hi, we’re Drew Moser and Jess Fankhauser. We spend our days, our weeks, and our years helping twenty-somethings make sense of life. We study it, we write about it, lead experiences about it, and we speak about it. Many people think the twenties are a decade to waste, to bum around until you turn 30. Not us. We think your twenties are too important to waste. They matter.

About Jess


I’m a just turned thirtysomething who has spent her career thus far working with twentysomethings. I care deeply about being a present and active participant in my local community and helping others to do the same. Along the way, I research, study and write about my experiences and those of my fellow millennials.

Currently, I serve as the Assistant Director of Athletics at Taylor University and co-direct the Vocation in College Project.

  • Where I teach courses on vocation (calling) and professional development
  • Where I work with students as they explore what it means to live faithfully
  • Where I research and write on vocation (book forthcoming in 2018. Ready or Not: Leaning into Life in Our Twenties

I co-wrote Ready or Not while still in my twenties, sharing what I learned along the way in the book. Vocation formation in my own life has deepened my desire to put down roots in my own local community by investing in my neighborhood, the foster care system and the local church.

I truly love hearing from others about the ways you are seeking to invest your own neighborhoods, workplaces, communities and families with hope, meaning and purpose. But please know that because of my own commitments to my work and local community I may not always have time to respond. Nevertheless, know that I’m cheering you on in your pursuit of living faithfully in all the places, opportunities and contexts in which you find yourself.
