Basinger Ministry


Believing that "the place God calls you to is where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet (Frederick Buechner, 1993)," Jacinda counts it a privilege to work with a talented team of national teachers to provide discipleship-based education to the future leaders of Papua, Indonesia. As she serves in areas of counseling and administration, she gets a front-row seat to see how hope is growing in her corner of the world! 

Jacinda is a third generation missionary kid. Born and raised in Indonesia, she loved the sense of adventure and purpose that she experienced growing up. She is grateful for the way her parents taught her about the Bible and modeled what it looks like to serve God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. She realized her need for God and began pursuing a relationship with Christ when she was seven years old. After graduating from high school in Indonesia, she went to Bible School with Youth With A Mission in Hawaii and India. During this time, she continued to grow in her faith as she faced the pain, brokenness, and poverty in the world around her. After Bible School, Jacinda graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a B.A. in Theatre and Theology as well as a certification in Elementary Education. She then went on to get her M.A in Counseling from Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary.

Matt and Jacinda met during their undergraduate years at Seattle Pacific University. They fell in love amidst the cubicles of the Office of Campus Ministries (Matt was the chapel worship leader and Jacinda lead the short term mission program). In 2003 they got married. They worked in Seattle for two years before moving to New York City to pursue further education. In 2012, the Basinger's moved to Papua, Indonesia with their two young sons, Zephaniah and Ezra. .

Paraclete associates raise funds to cover the cost of their ministry. Most associates are supported workers, which means that they also raise funds for a salary that is controlled by the Paraclete Board of Directors.

Paraclete separately accounts for donations preferenced for a specific ministry. The organization uses ten percent of all preferenced donations to cover shared expenses.
