Adam Madden is no stranger to UTRI. He has been serving on our Board of Directors as President since 2005. He has also spent over a decade as a pastor and church planting in the Midwest.
Adam is married to his high school sweetheart, Paige, who has been a daily reminder of God’s kindness toward him the past 13 years. Adam and Paige have five arrows in their quiver: Gavin, Aslan, Amya, Aizley, & Silas.
Adam earned a BA in Religious Studies from Southwest Baptist University and is working towards a MA in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary.
Travis and Katie have been with UTRI since 2007. They began their service through the internship program and later graduated the ministry school of IMPACT. Both have been on staff at UTRI’s headquarters in Texas and are now exploring new avenues through ministry in Utah with Adam and Paige Madden.
Travis and Katie have been married for 2 years. They met the summer of 2007 while interning together in Texas. God grew in them both a heart for missions and people which was fostered and nurtured through their work with UTRI.
Travis wore many hats in his service with UTRI. His position required him to maintain the vehicles and building, translate for teams, drive the bus, and he served as Youth Pastor at Alamo Community Church (ACC).
Katie served through her work as an Administrative Assistant to the directors, Clay and Angie Anderson. She kept the website up to date, wrote articles, and kept in contact with supporters of the ministry. She also held monthly Bible Studies for the young women in the youth at ACC and assisted Travis in his position as youth pastor.
Both Travis and Katie attended the Rio Grande Bible Institute. Travis graduated from the Missionary Language School in 2010 which enabled him to become fluent in Spanish. They used their Spanish speaking abilities to translate for teams and minister within the Hispanic congregation at ACC.
They recently moved to Utah to work alongside Adam and Paige in starting the church plant. They are getting involved in the community, forming relationships, and evangelizing. They are thankful for God bringing them the same heart for missions and excited about the new opportunities God has in store.
