Pastoral Assistants

Wullbrandts2.1Sam Wullbrandt

At various points in his life Sam has lived in Colorado, Texas, California, and New Hampshire. He has traveled to Ukraine, Vanuatu, Hungry, Austria, Japan. However, none of his multicultural experiences to date have been more impactful than the four months he spent studying abroad in Israel with a program called IBEX. During that semester he befriended Sarah, a cute blond from Sun Valley, Idaho. In the whirlwind years that followed, Sam and Sarah both graduated from The Master’s College, were married, and now have a smiling son named Cooper Fox And a little girl named Wren Marie.

After moving to Keene, Sam did a one-year internship at Crossway before going on staff full time as a Pastoral Assistant. Sam is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Biblical studies. He serves at Crossway Church in the areas of administration, teen ministry, teaching Adult Bible Fellowship, and preaching. The Wullbrandts are preparing for life as foreign missionaries and are praying about where the Lord would have them labor and harvest. They are excited to be sent out by Crossway Church.

JASON BILBY

Jason grew up on a cattle ranch in Oklahoma where he enjoyed a fairly typical childhood riding horses, fixing tractors and playing tennis. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. It was during his college years that he met his wife, Sarah, a New England native. She was visiting the area, and “happened upon” Jason’s church where they met one Sunday morning.

Jason and Sarah married in 1999, and moved near Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Jason established his career as an accountant. Several years later they moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where Jason attended The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. In January 2010, after three precious years attending seminary and fellowshipping at Clifton Baptist Church, Jason and Sarah and their three children (Lauren, Jenna and Joseph) moved to Marlborough, NH, where they still reside.

Jason worked in the corporate realm for another six years until Providence brought him to his current position at Crossway Church. When he isn’t working at the church building, he is either skiing, cutting firewood, reading theology books, or wishing he was skiing.
