Gary Travis is a CCO Associate, volunteering his time to reach out to students at Drexel University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Community College of Philadelphia. He recently retired after serving for 38 years as a music teacher in the School District of Philadelphia.
"I was at Indiana University of Pennsylvania as a freshman in 1971 when the CCO was first launched," says Gary. "My friends and I were among the first cohort of students who were influenced by the ministry of CCO.
"I now sense God's call to serve college students. I am on the Drexel campus almost every day, students live on my block, and our church is located right off campus. I remember how as a young Christian it was so helpful for me to be plugged in to a campus fellowship and to be mentored by Christian leaders."
