﷯TRAVIS PLUMLEE, MINISTER & TRUMPET COLUMNIST, DIES William Travis Plumlee, 60, of Mountain View, died Jan. 28. He was born in Fort Worth, Texas, and was saved when he was eight years old. He surrendered to the ministry in 1993, and was ordained Feb. 7, 1993 at Antioch Baptist Church in Conway.

Dr. Plumlee attended Slidell Seminary, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and University of Texas at Arlington and received a doctorate in theology. 
He received many awards over the years for his service, including: Dr. Frist Humanitarian Award; World Center for Health Studies Quality of Life Award; American Cancer Society Counselor of the Year; American Hospital Association Benson Award for Outstanding Advancement in Health Care Education; Agape Award, Houston AIDS Foundation; Ambassador’s Award, Governor of Texas; Travis Plumlee Center for Women & Children, named for him; Tralee Crisis Center located in Pampa, Texas; and president of UCA Faculty Senate. 
In December 1991, he began working with the BMA through Lifeword as a consultant provided by Rapha Hospital Treatment Centers in Houston, Texas. He came to help start a program that centered on starting small group ministries in loca1 BMA churches to which Lifeword telephone volunteers could refer callers for continuing ministry.

Bro. Plumlee went on to establish Family Ark Ministries, which he said was “designed to meet the needs of the local church” through several venues, including teen conferences and Biblical Manhood and Biblical Femininity Conferences. 
Bro. Plumlee also produced numerous videos, audio tapes and CDs on family issues. He also authored two books — Family Foundations and Practical Tips on Raising the King’s Kids. 
On Oct. 12, 1994, his first weekly Family Ark Ministries column ran in the Baptist Trumpet, and quickly became a favorite of our readers.
