Youth Director |
Travis Reedy is a full time student at Pacific Lutheran University, majoring in religion and theology. Travis has had many years of youth leadership before but he was called to Oasis to serve as the youth director. He is able to better live out this call with the support of his family, friends and girlfriend. In his free time, Travis enjoys running, eating, hunting and even flying kites competitively! Travis has a call on his life to become a lead pastor in the future and we are so excited that he is on the team.
