Personal Information:

Travis Hurley is a passionate communicator of the love of Christ for His church and our call to pursue that love with all that we are.
A graduate of Ozark Christian College and Cincinnati Christian University, Travis has been preaching for twenty years, the majority of which was spent serving as the lead minister of a multi-ethnic congregation in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.  Trav's passion for visible unity led to his pursuit of an M.Div., emphasizing pastoral leadership in a multi-ethnic setting.
In 2012, Travis accepted a position in the development department back at Ozark, and he also continues to teach and consult on issues of unity and diversity in the body of Christ.   His greatest accomplishment, though, was convincing a girl named Dena to be his bride nearly twenty years ago. 
Happily married for over 18 years, Travis and his wife Dena are raising four great kids, although sometimes Dena wonders if it's just her raising FIVE.
