Director of Events & Finance

Originally from Bay City, Texas, Sean Breeden is a 2009 graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville. Sean currently serves as the Director of Events and Finance for Encounter Ministries, and he is a frequent guest speaker at the two-year Encounter School of Ministry, as well as Encounter’s various conferences and weekend ‘Schools’ on the topics of identity, healing, and prophetic ministry.

Sean’s core message is encouraging audiences to be rooted in their identity as sons and daughters of God, to move from maintenance to mission, and to walk in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. While in college, Sean spent two years interning for Dr. Scott Hahn’s St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, followed by working nine years as a mortgage loan officer until starting with Encounter Ministries in 2020. In recent years, Sean has given talks and testimonies at many retreats, conferences, and parish missions; he was on the leadership team for several Lift Jesus Higher Youth Rallies in Toronto, Canada; he participated in the panel discussions for four episodes of the EWTN television program Crossing the Goal, which dealt with the “Lies of a Generation”; and he has also been featured on Peter Herbeck’s radio show Fire on the Earth. Sean resides in Saline, Michigan (just south of Ann Arbor), with his wife Lexie and their four children: Emma, Isaac, Dominic, and Jack. Their home parish is Christ the King in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
