Meet Travis Helms
Joining us for worship this Sunday, July 12 is the Rev. Travis Helms. Travis is Campus Missioner to the University of Texas at Austin, and is Founder + Curator of LOGOS Poetry Collective, a liturgically-inflected reading series "poetry church" community that congregates in an East Austin brewery.
He received a PhD in Divinity; and his dissertation, which explores theological elements in the work of four American poets, is forthcoming as a book from Pickwick / Wipf and Stock Publishers. He loves fishing, skiing, live music, and long hikes with his wonderful wife Gracie, an MBA who works for an Ed-Tech company based in Austin, and their dog, Roo. You can find Travis' poems and essays online; and he is elated to be spending this month in this Valley he calls sacred.
