Travis Geisel

Middle School Associate Director


Hi, I'm Travis.

Travis's desire is that every middle school student would find a place to belong at IMPULSE and experience a full life found in Christ. A former state chess champion, he now spends his free time as an amateur golfer on the local links. You can also find him cheering on the Dallas Cowboys or Hoosiers basketball from the comfort of a nearby Buffalo Wild Wings. Nowadays, most of Travis's free time is spent with his favorites—his wife, Lindsay, their son, Benaiah, and their puppy, Franklin.
