About My Family

My name is Travis Boles. The Lord has blessed me with my wife, Juli; we have been married for 15 years. We have two foster/adoptive children, as well as two biological children: Janae (13), Piper (10), Judson (8) and Beau 7.

We have been living and working in Houston for about 15 years. I was a police officer (and sergeant) at the Houston Police Department for more than 13 years, working gangs, narcotics and SWAT, and worked overseas for the state department.

Juli was an emergency room nurse and now manages an urgent care clinic as a nurse manager for Texas Children’s Hospital.

About My Church Plant

I finished one degree in seminary and felt called to full-time ministry. Our small group asked us to pray about planting a church in the Magnolia area where our small group was meeting. We went to the elders/pastors of our church (Redeemer Church Tomball), and they agreed to send us out to plant a church.

I have spent the past two years completing Foundational and Finishing residency programs with the Houston Church Planting Network. I have been assessed and received recommendations to plant through Stadia/HCPN and SBTC/Send. That original small group is now our launch team, who meet weekly in the Magnolia area. We have a heart for planting a healthy Christ-centered church that shepherds her people well, makes disciples and sends out members on mission.

NAMB Church Planting

Millions in North America are in desperate need of hope. Ultimately, the only hope that’s going to last - in this life and the next - is the hope of the gospel. North American missionaries build relationships and share this hope in their communities and beyond.


Like all church planters, we need solid core team members who are committed, mature leaders to lead ministry (and small groups) and also financial support. We need prayer that we will shepherd our people well. We need prayer that we will build a healthy Christ-centered culture that sends out its people to reach the lost.


There are four ways to get involved in our church plant: prayer, financial support, joining the launch team as an interim member, becoming a launch team member. Please shoot me an email:
