Travis was raised in Evans, GA. He was brought up in a Christian home and attended a small Baptist church where he received Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the age of thirteen. At that church he was very active in the youth group and set under a great Biblical teacher. At the age of 19 he joined the Coast Guard and moved to Charleston, SC. Travis was transferred to Astoria, OR after completing his job training in SC. Six months after moving to Oregon Travis went back to GA to marry the love of his life, Erin, and take her back home to Oregon. They both became active in the church, and Travis soon became the youth leader. When Travis switched from active duty to reserves, he and Erin moved back to Georgia with two young children, Rylee and Cassidy. Soon they were plugged into a church where they filled various roles wherever they were needed including the teen Sunday School teacher.
In mid 2012 Travis and Erin moved to Wilkes County with four children, Rylee, Cassidy, Ty, and Wyatt. While searching for a church home they were led to New Life Baptist Church. In early 2013 Travis and his family joined New Life Baptist Church where he became the Youth Leader. In April of 2015 Travis and Erin had their fifth child, Serenity. Then in May of 2017 Travis became an ordained minister and started serving New Life Baptist Church as their Associate Pastor.
