Our Story

Seehusen Family-19

We are the Seehusen family.  We are preparing to move from Southern California to Viti Levu, Fiji to serve in training pastors and equipping churches throughout the South Pacific.

How We Met – Jordan grew up in southern California and I (Michael) grew up  in Texas and the Midwest.  We met at Bible study in the Fall of 2005 while I was studying business at The Master’s College and Jordan completed her degree in communications at UCLA.  The Lord had given us each a heart for serving in the local church and a passion for overseas missions.  God divinely placed us on the same missions team in 2006.  It was during this 6-week missions trip in Uganda that we first officially talked about the idea of getting married and maybe one day being full-time missionaries overseas.

Life and Ministry – After marrying in 2007, Jordan worked 8 years as a conference and event coordinator and I worked in finance and sales before heading to seminary.  I completed my Master of Divinity from The Master’s Seminary in December, 2015, and my ACBC certification in the Fall of 2017.  During these years of training we have had the joy of serving the high school ministry at Grace Community Church for several years and then transitioned over to serve in the college ministry at Placerita Bible Church as the college ministry intern, and currently as a small group leader for our adult Bible Study.  The Lord has demonstrated His love, grace, and faithfulness during these years and we are so thankful for the wonderful experiences and fellowship we have experienced from our local churches.

Our Newest Family Members – On June 2, 2015 Taj Landon joined the Seehusen family.  Taj is one of life’s greatest blessings and God has given him the sweetest personality!  He loves to laugh, play sports, and read his Bible.  We are truly thankful to be his parents! We are currently expecting a little girl due Spring of 2018 and are all excited to meet this new Seehusen!

Fiji 2017-4Our Future Ministry Partners – We have been given the opportunity to partner with The College of Theology & Evangelism Fiji (Visit Their Website HERE).  This unique college and seminary provides free education, housing, and board to their students in an effort to equip and train the spiritual leaders in Fiji who often must be bi-vocational and aren’t able to afford to attend Bible school.  They currently offer accredited BA and MA degrees and are working hard to expand their program.  In addition to faithful training and discipleship, CTEF has a heavy focus on outreach to the local youth population through VBS, sports camps, and summer camps.  God is using this school and its ministries to make an eternal impact in the South Pacific!

Fiji 2017-225Our Ministry Goals – Our primary goal is to strengthen churches in Fiji.  We are partnering with Ambassadors for Christ International USA (Visit Their Website HERE), which has played an integral role in the building and development of The College of Theology and Evangelism Fiji.  We are currently praying that the Lord will have our family prepared to leave for Fiji in 2018 after the arrival of our second child.  Our role will be to work alongside the faithful believers currently serving the Lord within the local churches as well as the students and graduates of CTEF.  It is our aim to serve these ministries by establishing a Biblical Counseling training program.  Please pray for us as we prepare to embark on this journey and that the Lord will continue to work throughout Fiji in a mighty way!
