Serving Travis Air Force Base
Travis Air Force Base is located in Fairfield, CA, between San Francisco and Sacramento. The workforce consists of approximately 7,400 Air Force personnel and 3,700 civilians. In addition, there are also 3,300 Air Force Reserve personnel stationed at Travis.
Travis Air Force Base is home to one of the largest Air Mobility organizations in the Air Force and is the home of the C5 Galaxy and C17 Globemaster Cargo aircraft, and the KC10 Extender refueling aircraft. It is also home to David-Grant Hospital which is one of the largest USAF Medical Centers in the United States. This large hospital is staffed by more than 2,500 personnel.
The Travis Hospitality House, is located only two miles outside the main gate, ministers to this large, diverse military community focusing primarily on the 1,000 single Airmen who live in the dorms as well as young military families. Relationships are built through participation in various Chapel ministries, especially the Peak Airmen ministry center, located adjacent to the dorms.
The Travis Hospitality House is located on more than four acres and provides a place of sanctuary for military personnel and their families. There is a volleyball court and other things for Airmen to do on the property.
The major focus of the hospitality house ministry is in sharing the gospel through Bible studies, life-on-life discipleship, and events. Bible studies are offered throughout the week, either at the hospitality house or on base. We work alongside Chaplains and invite Airmen and families to engage in relationships and gospel conversations.
