Travis HolowniaExecutive Director-Communicator

Travis Holownia has a great passion for God and for people. His greatest desire is to see this generation experience what it means to live in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. God has used Travis in a catalytic way. His speaking and teaching inspires youth, young adults, and all ages by calling the Spirit of God to stir and awaken hearts.

Travis is the visionary leader of Resurgence Initiatives, a movement started in 2008 seeking to inspire people to arise together. Resurgence gathers and releases people who expect the impossible, experience God’s love, empower those around them, and engage in expanding God’s Kingdom.

Previously, Travis served for 8 years in the leadership of Christian youth conferences worldwide, and prior to that worked in a management role in the oil industry. Travis calls Edmonton, Canada home, cheers for the Oilers, and holds degrees both in Engineering and Theology.


In 2013, Travis stepped into leading the Resurgence Movement in a full-time role. For many years, he was giving life to it in addition to the busyness of his main career. But in the Summer of 2013, after much prayer, counsel, and a crazy step of faith, he was released to begin to put his full time and energy into stewarding what God has done with the Resurgence Movement.

For many years, Travis has shared at conferences, camps, retreats, churches, and various evangelistic outreaches. Travis is a gifted communicator with a passion to see a generation experience the miraculous power of Gods Word. It has always been a dream for him to be able have time to meet with leaders, equip the church, and reach the lost.

Since 2013, Travis has travelled across Canada (multiple times to Canada’s Arctic) and has ministered internationally. He would absolutely love to serve you!  Great ministry flows out of relationship. Travis desires more than anything to find new friends in cities that he can serve together with.

“I have known Travis Holownia for close to 10 years.  Over this time, I have witnessed growth and maturity in his personal life and ministry.  Travis has wisely used the tools of education, hard work, faithfulness, prayer and Godly passion, to release a generation into experiencing the power and presence of God.  His call to lead ‘Resurgence’ has caught fire.  People from many faith backgrounds and those without faith are connecting with Christ as they see Christianity practiced in love and authenticity.  Travis is being positioned to lead this generation into a spiritual awakening for our nation and beyond.”

“Travis Holownia has proved himself a faith and fruitful servant of Christ for over a decade in the city of Edmonton and Western Canada. He brings an unusual mix of having an education in business and theology. His perspectives are fresh, clear and anointed. He has served YC -Edmonton in a number of capacities, carrying the vision of the leader very well. During this time he has pioneered a dynamic spirit filled movement for Young Adults called ‘Resurgence.’ His ministry is igniting the age group, which is missing generation in most Church congregations. Having given significant time, thought and prayer to this minstry he is well and able to provide mentoring for Young Adult Pastors, Coach Boards to be effective with this age group and communicate powerfully and relevantly to leadership teams in churches that lead this ministry.

You will be helped, challenged, blessed and inspired if you should invite Travis to speak in your environment. I have every confidence in the mans character and his ability to preach with passion, conviction and being ‘Spirit’ led.”

After experiencing the ministry of Travis Holownia I am encouraged to know that Canada’s spiritual future is in good hands. Travis is a passionate young man of God who is raising up a generation of young adults to impact this nation through the power of the Holy Spirit. I am particularly blessed that Travis has joined forces with us to bring healing and wholeness to broken youth in Canada’s north through our Arctic Hope Project. Through his anointed ministry, young Inuit lives have been snatched from the prospect of suicide and are now filled with purpose and hope. God bless you Travis as you invest your life in the spiritual soil of this nation!
