Having both been raised in Christian homes, Travis and Leanna accepted Jesus when they were children. Leanna joined the Life Center staff in 2003, and Travis, after having grown up at Life Center, was hired in 2005. They were married that same year and now have four adorable young children. Together, they are a dynamic team who minister to the children and young families at Life Center.
Leanna leads a great team of volunteers in MiniWave who minister to our littlest children with grace and hospitality. Travis, and a dedicated team of Lifeguardz, lead the elementary-age children’s ministry, 1st Wave Kidz, with creativity and instruction. Their heart is to see an entire generation both experience and learn about God as they all have fun together.
Travis and Leanna are creative geniuses who have used their abilities to help the children’s ministries here explode with a mixture of the practical and the fun side of God that stays with kids as they grow. From video productions to theatrical performances, they bring stories to life for kids (and even adults) to experience God for themselves, all while being entertained with top-quality work. While some view their work as childcare, Travis and Leanna believe it as an opportunity to see God show up and bring His presence and love to children of all ages.
