Ron & Jeannie Seck
Ron grew up in a Christian family (General Conference Baptist) in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. He trusted Jesus Christ as Savior when he was nine years old, during Vacation Bible School. Ron first felt God calling him into Christian ministry while in high school, and committed his life to God fully while a junior at Princeton University. God then led Ron to Faith Theological Seminary and Biblical Theological Seminary in the Philadelphia area.
Like Ron, Jeannie grew up in a biblical Christian home. After her father died, when she was four years old, Jeannie asked Jesus to be her Savior and Lord.
While Ron was at Princeton, Jeannie was studying at Moore College of Art, with a passion to share Christ through creative artistic efforts. It was at this time that they met and married. The couple set their hearts on serving the Lord as creative artists, and essentially doing missional work using their skills and training.
While Ron was in seminary, people they met through their drama ministry and Jeannie’s teaching position at Wissahickon High School started coming to their apartment for Bible study. Those were the “Jesus people” days and God’s Spirit was moving. The group became so large that a local pastor asked Ron if he would begin a youth ministry at Church of the Open Door in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. Jeannie and Ron thoroughly enjoyed this flourishing work for four years, from 1971 to 1975, and in 1974 Ron was ordained at Church of the Open Door.
A series of clearly providential works of God led Ron to take the pastorate at Fellowship Baptist Chapel (now called Fellowship Chapel) in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1975. On July 1, 2011, Ron completed forty years of pastoral ministry, serving several churches during that time.
For the last eighteen years of his ministry, while pastor of a North American Baptist Conference church, Ron did mission work in Central Europe. Now he and Jeannie are devoting the balance of their career service to Hungary. They spent three months in Hungary during the latter part of 2011 to set up this work.
Ron and Jeannie are confident that God has called them to expand and continue their passion for His glory in Central Europe with their ministry to the Roma people. Using their gifts of faith, leadership, preaching, teaching, administration, and hospitality, they plan to develop at least five pilot Roma communities in Hungary, Croatia, and Serbia in the next five years. In these communities they will train Roma workers in evangelism and holistic ministry to meet the great need for holistic help. Their goals are to plant and build up Roma Baptist churches, and especially for Jesus to change lives.
On December 9, 2011, Rev. Ronald and Jeannie Seck were approved by the NAB, and accepted their appointment as NAB missionaries to Hungary. On February 2, 2012, they plan to leave to begin their full-time work in Hungary.
