Family Camp #1 Speaker - Travis Fleming

From the heart of Illinois in Arthur, IL, Travis and his wife, Melissa, since 2000 are back for another great year at Silver Birch Ranch! 

Travis and his wife have four wonderful children: Eliana, Moriah, Elijah, and Josiah. As a graduate of Moody Bible Institute (B.S. in Biblical Studies) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts (M.A. in Theology), Travis is now in the process of completing his second master's degree in Christian thought from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL. He has been blessed to pastor some wonderful churches - one in Chicago and one in Peabody, Massachusetts.

Travis is an avid reader and loves to study God's Word and teach people how to apply it to their lives. He enjoys learning, interacting with all kinds of people, and keeping up with Chicago sports!
