Baptist church in October 1983, and ordained at the Chapel of Faith Pentecostal Church on December 1,
1985. Rev. Travis fulfilled the great commission by preaching in many states, praying for thousands, and
feeding and clothing whoever had a need. The Holy Spirit gave her many gifts, such as the gift of healing,
speaking in tongues with interpretation of tongues, preaching, teaching, and the ability to live the true
and living word daily. Rev. Travis would often say, “I want to live so that God can use me anytime and
anywhere so that both saints and sinners can see the miracles of God.” She is a true servant of the Most
High God.”

challenge anyone that dared. Rev. Travis was the President and Founder of the Akron Clergy Women’s
Alliance and Akron Haiti Mission. Rev. Travis was Pastor of Miracle Revival Church and Associate Pastor
of Chapel of Faith Holiness Church. Serving God has always been her passion.
A favorite quote of Rev. Travis was “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to
preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the
captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. (Luke 4:18) During her
brief hospital stay she continued to ask, “Have you accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in your heart”.
