Nursing manager Jeremy Bilbrey serves as a nursing supervisor at United General Hospital Washington. Outside of work, Jeremy Bilbrey is a member of Village Church in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

In addition to its Sunday gatherings and other worship services, Village Church strives to improve the world by spreading the gospel. For more than six years, Village Church has focused its global mission efforts on India. Through its Love India project, Village Church raised nearly $200,000 in support of International Justice Mission. Members of the church currently support 475 Dalit children, which the Church hopes to increase to 1,000 within the next few years.

Over the last two years, Village Church has sponsored five short-term mission trips to support schools and prayer networks in India. Three teams toured the schools of the Dalit people there, observing the oppression and poverty of the region and taking note of the impact of church members’ donations on the situation. In the long term, Village Church expects to sponsor missionary teams in France, China, north India, and Madagascar as well.

Working in the nursing industry since 2002, Jeremy Bilbrey is a registered nurse and is an epic credential trainer for PeaceHealth located in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. In addition, he works a house supervisor and an ICU/emergency RN for United General Hospital. Jeremy Bilbrey supports the Village Church of Surrey, British Columbia, where he helps to sponsor a child in South India.

Village Church began in 2010 when Pastor Mark Clark gathered a team of 16 individuals to plant a new church in Surrey. The church seeks to transform people into believers and followers of Jesus. Since it began, the church has grown to include multi-site services within the area.

Not only does the Village Church reach members through its Sunday services, but during the summer children have an opportunity to connect through its summer camps. In 2016, the church features two camp sessions for its Worlds Apart camp with the first occurring from July 4th through 8th and the second session taking place from July 11th through 15th. About 750 children play games, listen to music, and experience the love of Jesus. Adults can also take part, and if their children are too young to participate, the camp offers childcare opportunities.
