Hi! My name is Travis and I am a slave to Christ. I am also a husband to my beautiful wife Amanda, father to our 2 kids here on Earth, Nash and Lydia, our son in Heaven, Dean, and a friend to anyone who is willing to tolerate me!
I am forever grateful to our God who has rescued me from a life of some hard times and a loving family and friends that have stood by my side through it all.
I’ve always loved music since I was young, and have spent most of my adult life performing in various bars and clubs, until I realized my love for music and performing was only serving myself and there was no joy or fulfillment in that.
God has since changed my heart to throw self-satisfying performance out the window and to offer back the gifts He has so graciously given. Few things fill my heart with such joy than to stop playing, step back, and listen to a room of young people or adults sing out to the Lord when the music has stopped.
In a society where too many teens and young people are becoming another statistic, and self-worth is based off follows or likes on social media, My hope here 121 is that this is a place where you are welcome and belong without having to search the world for it.
My heart is to be available and create the opportunity to use any and all musical or creative gifts from God, in a scripturally sound way, as a grateful response to the undeserved mercy He has so graciously given.
Outside of church, if I could, I would spend my day drinking a great cup of coffee, having a great conversation with my wife, listening to my kids laugh, creating a cloud of sawdust in my garage while listening to 90’s rock, and then end the night going to a Marvel movie in pajama pants!
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
