Travis Mecum was born and raised in the farming community of Olmitz, KS and then relocated to Overland Park, KS, where I have worked in the field of clinical and research Sleep Medicine for the past 13 years. I have studied Vocal Performance and Music Theory/Composition, and most recently obtained an Associate of Arts degree in Applied Organization Leadership from Mid America Nazarene University.
“We were the only non-Catholic family in town; but I knew at an early age that I wanted to become a Roman Catholic Priest. When I was 15, I spoke to my Lutheran Bishop about entering seminary, and was advised to first obtain life experience. I have worked in various fields serving others, but have always known that I was to be a Priest. Finally, three years ago I was confirmed into the Catholic Church and began the discernment process. I have served my Parish in a variety of roles: a Cantor, choir member, EMHC, Sacristan, RCIA Team Member, and Knight of Columbus. Since my conversion, I have brought my mother, father, sister and her husband into the Church, as well as many others from work. I and continue to talk to my friends/work acquaintances that have questions about the Catholic Faith and continue to evangelize.”
