Hello, my name is Travis and on 1.20.18,(at 38 years of age) I had an experience with Jesus Christ that literally changed the coarse of my life. Since that day, I have given my life to Jesus. I began reading the Bible, watching sermons on Youtube and read anything I could get my hands on that brought me closer to Jesus. During that process, I stumbled on Ravi Zackarias and immediately was drawn to his teachings. I’ve learned a great deal from Ravi and hope to learn much more.
Where are you from? Originally, I am from Amarillo, Texas but currently reside in San Luis Obispo, CA
What led you to join Connect?
Several months into my conversion and transformation through Jesus Christ, I learned of Apologetics. Up till about a year ago or so, I had never even heard the term, “apologetics”. I immediately fell in love with the idea of defending Christianity in an intelligent way and started reading any book on the subject I could get my hands on. Soon after, I discovered RZIM. The next step of my journey is to take an online class and hopefully meet some like minded individuals.
How do you hope to contribute?
Great question! Though I’m still young in my faith, my current goal is to learn everything I can on The Word as well as apologetics. Then with that knowledge, I would love to incorporate what I learn with my testimony in hopes of reaching as many folks as I can. We all have a story. My story happens to be quite unique in the fact that I’m a singer in a rock n roll band. I started using drugs/alcohol at a young age. Dropped out of high school and move to California at the age of seventeen. At 25, I moved to Los Angeles and joined a rock n roll band. I’ve travelled the world, singing for a popular band yet was still miserable inside. Through the power of Jesus Christ, I overcame my addictions, depression, anxieties and suicidal thoughts. I believe my story can potentially help folks and hopefully bring them closer to Jesus Christ. I’m praying that through this program, I can learn some tools and hopefully meet some like minded individuals that share my passion for a Christ and helping others.
