Leadership Team

Please feel free to contact any members of the leadership team if you have any questions, concerns, or if you want to serve in a particular area of ministry!  We would love to have you serve the Lord with us!

Team Leader - Christy Biebighauser -

Busy mom to two children and wife to Lon, I have been privileged to be a part of the SSBC family for over 10 years and serve SSBC in this capacity for over a year.  It is a joy and an honor to serve our women.  I have a heart to see our ladies plugged in and helping grow and edify the Body of Christ, as they themselves are also growing in their walk with Jesus.

Bible Study - Patrice Sharbutt -

Married to Albert (Rock Star to 2 year-olds at SSBC); mother of 3 – Sammye, Chris and Judith; member of SSBC since 2002; loves teaching women how to study the Word of God and helping women fall deeper in love with Jesus.

Outreach Coordinator - Jeannie Baker -

Married to Steven; mother of 3, Isabella, Jack and Charlotte; member of SSBC since 2006.  I am so thankful that the Lord provided the opportunity to serve the women of SSBC!  My passion is to connect SSBC women with ways to serve and share the gospel message in the Abilene community, along with supporting women who have gone out from our church to serve the Lord all over the world.

Member Care Coordinator - Shelbi Hamlett -

I am married to Steven Hamlett; mother of Kinsler, Kennedi, and will be welcoming a baby boy (Kove) in December. We joined South Side as members in 2016. I have a heart for serving the women of South Side; making sure that each woman is taken care of so that she may go out and serve when she is called.
