Sean Christensen

My name is Sean Christensen. I’m just a country boy from central Wisconsin. I wasn’t raised in a Christian home, but Jesus found me when I was 17 years old and following Him has led me to Haiti with my wife and four children, where I teach the Bible to Haitian Christian leaders, some younger, some older. I have found that God doesn’t waste anything in your life. After high school, I studied secondary education in college, then went to seminary where I sensed God calling me into missions. After seminary, I got married and taught high school math for a few years, then served as an associate pastor for seven years. When I learned that World Team was looking for pastors to teach at a Bible college in Haiti, I offered myself to the Lord. God confirmed His calling to both my wife and I in different ways. When people asked why we were leaving our home, our ministry, our church, our friends, family and neighbors in order go to Haiti, we responded, “We’re following Jesus and that’s where He’s taking us.” After ten years, that’s still our perspective.

What I love about World Team and what my Haitian colleagues love about World Team, is that we have a mentality of partnership with our brothers and sisters in Christ. World Team is all about working together as a body. If we have strengths to offer the Haitian church, we also have weaknesses that Haitian believers can help us with. We equip leaders so they are free to become all that God wants them to be. World Team respects the value of every member of the body of Christ, so we facilitate communication and further partnerships between the national church associations with whom we work, so they can help each other too. Haitians can train Surinamese in how to run a decentralized Bible school program. Guadeloupians can share their French theological resources with the school in Haiti. World Team helps facilitate those networks, even though it takes time and effort to build those kind of relationships.

As a missionary, I know that I am cared for by my mission. World Team’s counselors, trainers, coaches and leaders consistently invest in my wife and I, and they care about the health of our family. Our team members in Haiti pray together, serve together, suffer together and grow strong together, for the sake of the gospel. This grace-fueled fellowship that World Team is, reproduces healthy disciples, healthy leaders and healthy churches, all for the glory of God. I am grateful to the Lord for the privilege to serve him in Haiti with World Team.
