Raised in Golden, CO, Travis joined the military in 1988, where God regenerated him to new life and faith in Christ in 1990. He met and married Melinda in 1993, and God has given them five wonderful children: Nicolas, Leah, Jesse, Scott, and Cali. Travis was educated for pastoral ministry (The College at Southeastern, B.A., 1997; The Master’s Seminary, M.Div., 2006), and further prepared by working at Grace to You and ministering at Grace Community Church (ordination, 2012). Travis is now the teaching pastor at Grace Church (since 2014), where he equips the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12). His aim is to proclaim Jesus Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so he may do his part in presenting everyone mature in Christ (Col. 1:28).
