Shane and Laura Sebastian
About The Sebastian Family
We have been married for 15 years and have four incredible children. Kirra is 10, and our twins, Summer and David, are 8. Curren, our youngest, is 4. Shane graduated from UC Irvine and Laura from UC Santa Barbara. 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.
Shane has been working with Campus Crusade for Christ for 18 years and Laura for 15 years. They work with the campus ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ focusing on sending students of the Pacific Southwest to reach students of the world for Christ. As a National Director, Shane gives leadership to the staff and students in the Pacific Southwest as they pursue giving every university student an opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus.
They also give leadership to the international component of the ministry- The Worldwide Student Network- as they send staff and students to reach students of the world in East Asia, Central Asia, Australia, Mexico City, El Salvador, The Dominican Republic, the Middle East, and Japan.
As they focus on international missions, Shane travels to these countries and meets with nationals to form partnerships. He mobilizes people to go, helps care for staff overseas, and builds the relationship with nationals. They send students and young people for a year, a summer, and long term - including 300 students this summer alone! Ministry varies depending on the country, but focuses on reaching college students who are then able to reach their peers.
Shane says, "It's all about Changed Lives. We love what we do! It is such a privilege to talk with university students of the world about the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ."
