Travis attended a Church of Religious Science for the time in Durango, Colorado in 1986. Rev. Marlene Oaks was speaking at the time. It was there that he completed his Practitioner training and classes. In May of 1991, he became the first and only outreach ministry worker in Moscow, Russia for the Soviet-American New Thought Initiative (UCRS) to live in the Soviet Union. Travis oversaw the first translations of Science of Mind literature into Russian, organized the first International New Thought Conference in 1991, and began teaching accredited classes, all in the former Soviet Union. Travis has brought his ministry to Southern California in 1991, serving several CSL communities as Practitioner and teacher. He facilitates book study groups, serves as a Guest Speaker, and hosts Seal Beach Center for Spiritual Living’s International heart of Peace Meditations, which he designed and implemented. Travis is a dedicated Practitioner who’s inspiration truly is to inspire and create a “World That Works For Everyone”.
