Travis Allen was called to the pastorate at Grace Church in November 2014. He has a background in the military and federal law enforcement, an undergraduate degree from The College at Southeastern in Wake Forest, NC (B.A., Biblical Studies, 1997), and a graduate degree from The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, CA (M.Div., 2006).
Before coming to Grace Church, Travis served for fourteen years in John MacArthur’s ministries at Grace Community Church and Grace to You in southern California. He was ordained at Grace Community Church and served in many ways, most recently as a church elder and the pastor of the Doulos fellowship. At the same time, he worked at Grace to You, John MacArthur’s international media and radio ministry, in several roles—broadcast editor, internet ministry director, and finally as managing director, overseeing staff and daily operations.
Travis and his wife, Melinda, have been married since 1993 and have five children, Nicolas, Leah, Jesse, Scott, and Cali.
Born & raised in Greeley, Colorado I have been blessed with a beautiful wife, Kayla, and two daughters: Kyree and Alexis I have spent two years on the foreign mission field; one in Mexico building homes for the poor, and one in Haiti drilling wells. I believe God has called me to come alongside parents in establishing and equipping the students of Grace church so that they can be used by God in the Church Body in Greeley Colorado and around the world to reach the lost and make disciples. I have recently enrolled and started taking online classes at Boyce college for a bachelors degree in Biblical studies. Boyce is the undergrad school for Southern Baptist Theological Seminary which is located in Louisville, KY.
I am an "almost native" Coloradoan--having lived all of my 54 years in Colorado, except for the first six months! God has been good to me and blessed me with a wonderful wife of 27 years, three great (grown) children and one grandson, Jayce! This is the second church fellowship I've served as facilities manager, after careers in the toy and video production industries. My employment at Grace Church is more than a "job" to me--it is a God-given mission to serve our Lord, and his people, by maintaining our beautiful campus and doing everything in my power to serve and support our ministry leaders. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or feedback @ (970) 302-0747 or email@example.com. It is a joy to worship and serve alongside each of you!
I have lived in Greeley all my life and have attended Grace Church that whole time. Having grown up in Grace Church has allowed me to grow as a Christian from both the lean times and times of prosperity that a church goes through as God nurtures it. In my time in Greeley I also attended and graduated UNC with a degree in Bilingual Education. I have experience teaching students and staff in public schools and community colleges in the area. Having grown up in Grace Church and taught in the community has prepared me for serving the children's ministry at Grace thanks to Gods sovereign plan. I have also grown as a believer with some credit to my husband of 14 years and 8 year old son. I am very excited to use my background in education and my growth as a Christian to serve your children here at Grace Church. My goal and the goal of the staff here at Grace Church is to have your children gain knowledge of the Bible and have an understanding of the church body so when they are young adults they are grounded and know where to turn when the storms of life come.
