Travis Ryan is known by the public as a multi-dove nominated, ASCAP recognized #1 hit-songwriter. But to those close to him, he is known as a servant-hearted worshipper of God who fiercely champions the Church, utterly cherishes his beautiful wife, Hayley, and is the hero of their three young children.
Travis is a well respected Integrity Music staff writer and artist. He has had cuts with Newsboys, Phillips, Craig and Dean, All Sons and Daughters, Phil Wickham, Selah and more. He has collaborated with well-known leaders in the worship community like Matt Redman, Vertical Church, Elevation Worship, Darrell Evans, Ben Cantelon, Worship Central, Jared Anderson, Tim Timmons, Jason Ingram, Jennie Lee Riddle, Dustin Smith, Meredith Andrews, Michael Farren, and Brenton Brown to name just a few. Travis has toured with Paul Baloche, Phil Wickham, MercyMe, and The City Harmonic.
Of note is the widely loved Church favorite,“We Believe” co-authored with Richie Fike and Matt Hooper. It was singled and carried to the top of all Christian charts by the Newsboys in 2015 and continues to spread through congregations around the globe.
Other noteworthy releases includes his latest EP, “You Hold It All” featuring faith-filled songs that embolden and inspire the Church. This offering is anthemic, stirring and beautifully powerful. All songs were written by Travis and his songwriting community of worship pastors and songwriters. It was co-produced by worship pastor / songwriter, Michael Farren and arranger/composer, Brandon Michael Collins.
One of Travis’ true gifts and passions lies in developing an authentic and thriving creative culture and community amongst songwriters, musicians and artists. His ministry reaches into Europe and Asia, the Nashville community of songwriters, Gospel Music Association, Nashville Worship Leader Network, People & Songs community, The Emerging Sound camps, All About Worship, and other conferences and ministries where God is growing faithful servant-hearted leaders.
Travis has now led worship for over a decade. He is as passionate about the name of Jesus on the lips of few as He is from the lips of thousands. He led worship at Saddleback in CA for seven years, and now serves on the outskirts of Nashville, TN as Sr. Worship Pastor over all global and national campuses of LifePoint Church, which is headquartered in Smyrna, TN.
