Elder Michele Irby

Elder Michele Irby is a native of Maryland and is a much sought after vessel who serves the Kingdom of God through her unique preaching and teaching ministry that reaches deep into the hearts and souls of those longing for water in a dry place – healing in a hard place – and strength in the wilderness.


In 2002, Elder Michele Irby founded Living By Grace Ministries which is an outreach component that seeks to minister salvation, healing and deliverance to those whose lives have been woven in pain, rejection, and abuse. Living By Grace Ministries (LBGM) focuses on the truth that the grace of God has the power to restore, the fortitude to rebuild, and the compassion to mend the broken lives of those who are willing to surrender their imperfections, their faults, failures, and frailties to a God of love, a God Who longs to embrace them and make them whole in Him. 


As an advocate against Domestic Violence, Elder Irby has penned her first literary work entitled "Love's TKO: A Testimony of Abuse, Victory and Healing," which shares her experiences as a victim of a love gone bad through domestic violence. To continue her love for writing and reaching others through this gift, Elder Irby has penned her second literary work entitled "Grace For Your Journey: Sermons of Survival in the Wilderness."
