Whether weekend retreats, four-hour church events, or guest speaking, here are some ways we encourage families:

Youth Retreats

“Thank you for being such a blessing to me and our middle school students this past weekend.  You and your family are doing God’s work in such an awesome way!  Many thanks and blessings!

Rita Hoops

It was a pleasure listening to you speak and teaching me some very important lessons that will help me through life. Thanks for speaking during the youth retreat. You did an AMAZING job speaking. Seeing all the teens listening to you and really taking in what you were saying just put a smile on my face. Again, it was amazing to hear you speak and hope you come back and speak again.

Dayne Mills

“We want to keep the momentum from the youth retreat experience going. We want the adults to catch up to our youth. The next time we need a speaker, you will be contacted. Thank you for your faithfulness.

Pastor Carl Redding

Family Camps

“I heard nothing but good from our guests.  They liked how you were real and spoke the truth and were able to teach them something from it.  We didn’t have many evaluations come in, but the ones that did looked great.  Most importantly, you connected with the people and remembered their names which is a huge part in the type of speaker you are.  They won’t always remember your messages, but they will remember the speaker that became their friend.  Thanks, Travis!”

-Evan Benevides, Program Director of Adult and Family Ministries

“Just wanted to drop you a note letting you know how much I appreciated your messages at Family Camp. That was our first time at a family camp there and God orchestrated our visit to coincide with yours.  I needed to be motivated by your messages and passion for God’s Word.  I think of you frequently and am praying for you and your family.  Thank you again for your ministry.”

-Don Olean

“We were truly blessed as you spoke recently at our retreat and feel led to give you this love gift.  You truly have a genuine love for our Lord and Savior which is so evident in your love for His Word and in your obedience to His calling.  Your love for your wife and children is also evident.  May God continue to bless and keep you and your family is His care and protection.

-Caroyln & Dan McCoy

Father-Son/Daughter Retreats

Travis has been a speaker for us at both the Buffalo and Rochester Iron Sharpens Iron Conferences and at last year’s CSB Leadership Advance. Travis connects wonderfully with men and young men and his memorization of Scripture is amazing.

Sam Richbart, Executive Director

I thank God for you that you pray for me and support me, Mr. Travis. God has been teaching me a lot and is leading me through life now that I have truly realized his love. Please keep praying for me that I will be able to hear his voice and listen.

-Doug G.

Your testimony, perseverance, and obedience was a true blessing and ministry to my heart at this time. Thank you for your faithfulness to speak the truth plainly and honestly.
