Since we were not able to hold our commencement this year at DBTS, we are highlighting one of our graduates each day. Today we would like to recognize Anthony Iorillo.
Tony was born in Cleveland, OH, in 1982, the son of Mark and Maria Iorillo. When he was 13 years old, he trusted Christ at an evangelistic meeting at his family’s church, Bible Community Church. Tony graduated in 2007 from Clearwater Christian College with a Bachelor of Science in General Studies.
At DBTS, we recognize that our students could not get through their programs without the faithful and loving help and support of their wives, especially, and their family. Tony is married to the former Kimberly Ziegler of Southgate, MI, and they have three daughters, Isabella, Adrianna, and Serafina.
Tony is a member of Grace Church of Mentor in Mentor, OH, where he teaches the teen Sunday School, teaches at the church’s Bible Institute, serves as a deacon, and works in discipling members of the church as well as offering pulpit supply for other churches in the area.
I, personally, am thankful for God’s grace that has been evident in Tony’s life, allowing him to finish his degree during some unexpected twists and turns along the way. After graduation, Tony plans to pursue the Master of Theology at DBTS and continue disciple-making, teaching, and preaching under the leadership of his church.
