About Tony Erby
A product of generations of preachers and singers, I am what you might call a “church boy.” I was born and raised in Chicago, but in my heart, I belong to Mississippi. I am married to Beverly Johnson Erby, a dynamic wife, mother and minister. We have two amazing children, Adam and Adrienne, who are adults fulfilling their unique purposes in life.
As a young child I asked Jesus to be my Savior, but it wasn’t until I was in college that I made Him my Lord. I am who I am today because of a supportive family, staying in church, several mentors and faith in God’s Word and His love for me. I have completed undergraduate, graduate and doctoral studies and am licensed as a counselor, educator and school administrator. I am also a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center and a licensed minister.
I joined the staff at Eagle Mountain International Church in 2002, having served in several great churches in Illinois, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and California. I am the Senior Associate Pastor of Education and Discipleship. I also provide ancillary support to our music department. My position at EMIC allows me to fulfill my calling, which is to provide the service of knowledge in order to promote, inspire and cultivate love for the local church and spiritual growth for the Body of Christ
