Shane and Laura Sebastian


About Us:

We have been married for 25 years and have four children. Kirra is 20, and our twins, Summer and David, are 18. Curren, our youngest, is almost 15. Life is full!

Shane graduated from UC Irvine and Laura from UC Santa Barbara (Shane also graduated with a Masters degree, and graduated in May 2014 with a doctoral degree in ministry from Portland 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.

Our Ministry:

We have been working with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) for 27 years (Shane) and 25 years (Laura).

We work with the campus ministry of Cru focusing on sending students to reach students of the world for Christ. As executive director Shane sits on a team giving leadership to our staff and students in the U.S. 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, Japan, and more than 70 other countries worldwide.

We are transitioning to The Jesus Film, a ministry within Cru. More info on our transition coming soon!

We love what we do. It's amazing to see God change the lives and eternal destinies of young people around the world.  It is such a privelege to talk with university students of the world about the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
