Standing up & standing strong on the Pillar of Truth


Travis Allen


Travis Allen is the teaching pastor at Grace Church in Greeley, CO, where he teaches and leads the local flock with biblical conviction. God graciously shaped Travis into the man he is today. 

Our pastor works for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:12).  His aim is to proclaim Jesus Christ, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, to do his part in presenting every member of Grace Church mature in Christ (Col. 1:28).


Travis is a Colorado native. He joined the Navy in 1988, where God regenerated him to new life and faith in Christ. Thankful to God for 27 years of marriage, Travis and his wife Melinda have five children: Nic, Leah, Jesse, Scott, and Cali. 

After a stint in law enforcement, Travis pursued ministry training (The College at Southeastern for a B.A. in 1997 and The Master’s Seminary for a M.Div. in 2006).

In 2014, he accepted the teaching pastor position at Grace Church in Greeley and returned to Colorado.
