Shane and Laura Sebastian
We have been married for 18 years and have four incredible children. Kirra is 13, and our twins, Summer and Davey, are 11. Curren, our youngest, is 8. Life is full!
Shane graduated from UC Irvine and Laura from UC Santa Barbara (Shane also graduated with a Masters degree and is currently working on his doctorate from George Fox Evangelical Seminary). As college students we both were tremendously impacted as we went on summer mission trips where we learned to share our faith. After graduation it was clear God was calling us to work with university students- the future.
We have been working with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) for 20 years (Shane) and 18 years (Laura).
We work with the campus ministry of Cru focusing on sending students of the Pacific Southwest to reach students of the world for Christ. As a national director Shane gives leadership to our staff and students in the Pacific Southwest as we pursue giving every university student an opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus.
We also give leadership to the international component of the ministry- Cru Global Missions- as we send staff and students to reach students of the world in East Asia, Central Asia, Australia, El Salvador, South Africa, India, Haiti, France, the Dominican Republic, the Middle East, and Japan.
We are currently preparing to move to Puerto Rico to go on Stint for 1-2 years. There are 175,000 students on 23 campuses. Our prayer is to share the reality of Jesus with every single college student there!
We love what we do. It is such a privelege to talk with university students of the world about the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
