Catch The Replay

HUR@Home Inspiration is a new series that connects you with leaders and artists in their homes during the COVID-19 crisis via 96.3 WHUR’s Instagram Live Chat. On Palm Sunday, I chatted with DMV Pastor Keith Battle and national Gospel recording artist Travis Greene.

Keith Battle is Pastor of Zion Church in Landover, Maryland. The mission of Zion Church is to help people experience God, engage in community, be equipped for ministry and empowered to serve across various locations and technologies.

Travis Greene’s music ministry has blessed the world with songs such as “Intentional”, “Made A Way” , and “Won’t Let Go.” When Travis entered this world with complications that threatened his survival. At the age of four, he was pronounced dead after falling four floors out of an apartment window in Germany. As his mother picked up the lifeless body of her child, she called on Jesus over-and-over, praying until he came back to life. These near fatal and precious testimonials of life preface the anointing of a young man destined to minister to the world.


Growing up in a military family in various parts of the world, Travis used music as an outlet to overcome many heart-breaking and crucial life experiences. Through his own broad style of music and ministry, Travis accepts the personal challenge to continually unify the body of Christ as one. The passion that dwells in him allows him to use his gifts as an instrument to help, heal and bring positive change to the lives of God’s people.

Travis, his wife Jackie, and their son, David Jace, currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina and together they co-pastor Forward City Church in Columbia, South Carolina.

Pastor Battle shared his views on how faith leaders are serving their congregations through the coronavirus pandemic. Travis spoke to me about the challenges of pastoring to those who have lost loved ones and the hope that still exists through Jesus Christ.
