Travis is the President and Founder of Voice of Messiah. After being radically saved from a life of drugs and immorality at the age of 18, Travis sensed a strong calling to reach Jewish people with the Good News of their Messiah. Two years later he was on a plane to Israel where he spent 9 months studying Hebrew, the Bible, and participating in short-term outreach trips. From there Travis went on to earn a B.A. in Jewish Studies from The Moody Bible Institute and a Masters of Divinity from Regent University School of Divinity. Travis has been involved in Jewish ministry for the last fourteen years, and has a heart to oversee a ministry that fully embodies the mission statement of the Gospel in Romans 1:16.
