|>Travis began trafficking crack cocaine, was arrested in 2002, and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
A year had gone by since incarceration and Travis was still searching for something to fill his voids. It was routine church service after another. In December of 2003 when Travis was attending church service just like the days before something was different. On this particular day the word of God spoke into his heart and mind. God removed the scales from his eyes causing him to see Christ for the first time in his life. Travis later became known as “Chosen” and spent the next years of his life living for God, even behind bars. On May 22, 2006, by God’s grace Chosen was released from prison. Unfortunately and shortly after, in September of 2006 Travis’s mother died of a massive heart attack.
Continuing to live for God, Chosen pressed forward devoting his life to God, the study of His word, and ministering through the gift of gospel rap. Chosen with his God given brothers in Christ released an album titled “CCM, Street Therapy” in March of 2009. Since then “Chosen” has released his first debut album titled “Based on a True Story” in March of 2011 featuring artist such as Zion, Walk-Right Ministries, Church Boi, G-Status, and more. Now “Chosen” is set to release his second studio album “Heart of Savannah” October 2013.
Chosen now serves as a deacon at his local God given church body CCRBC (Christ Centered Reformed Baptist Church) where Harold “Zion” Edwards and James Eady serve as pastors. Travis “Chosen” Jones is now the husband of his beautiful wife Kendra Jones and father of two. Chosen has been privileged to teach bible study and help facilitate a men’s home bible study once a month, where he teaches on a variety of topics. His ultimate desire is to equip the saints of God for effective ministry (Ephesians 4:12) as he himself is also being equipped.
Today, Chosen stands firm on the promises of God, holding steadfast to His word, I Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” As an established witness that God’s word is true Chosen says, that he will continue to name the name of Jesus Christ even if “They Don’t Like Me!” fin
