Chairman of the Board
Robin Lee considers himself extremely blessed to serve as the Chairman of the Board for SEAP. In addition to SEAP, Robin serves as the assistant pastor at King's Church in Long Beach, California.
Robin has been married to Irene since 2000 and together, they have four great kids: Karis, Elijah, Joshua, and Noah. Robin loves running, playing basketball, and watching movies. Braveheart is his favorite movie and says that Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. And although running may be boring, Robin says it's a great way to stay healthy and pray without distraction.
Robin looks forward to meeting you and serving the King together in ways that are more comprehensive, encouraging, and innovative through collaboration and partnering.

Celine Baldemor began working with Southeast Asia Partnership in December 2011 and hit the ground running with preparations for the March 2012 conference.
Not a stranger to missions, non-profits, or travel, Celine’s previous experience includes working for the development department of a missionary-sending agency for over 8 years. During that time, she traveled to Venezuela and Hungary for missionary conferences as well as to different areas in the US to coordinate major fundraising events.
She also volunteers with Jars Ministries, a non-profit organization founded by her father, and for GLOW (God's Love On Wheels), an organization that gifts refurbished wheelchairs from Japan to indigents in the Philippines.
Born and raised in the Philippines, Celine moved to California with her family in 1988. The family had planned to stay for three years while Celine’s father pursued his studies at Fuller Theological Seminary. However, that three-year plan grew into something more permanent, and Celine continues to call California “home.”
Her love for travel has taken Celine on trips for missions or for leisure to the cultures of Spain, Jamaica, Japan, and Vietnam…and Celine’s list of countries to visit continues to grow.
