Erin Osborne joined the Saint Micahel staff as Coordinator of Small Groups in April of 2022. She has been a member of Saint Michael and All Angels since 1990.
Erin grew up in the windy Panhandle town of Pampa, Texas, a “cradle Episcopalian,” where she was an acolyte, led VBS, and never missed a Pancake Supper. She attended Southern Methodist University, receiving first her BA, then MA in clinical and counseling psychology, focusing on family systems. She then completed her MTS in Biblical Studies at Perkins School of Theology.
Erin spent her twenties and thirties working with children and their families as a school counselor and learning specialist. With the birth of her youngest, she focused her energy on raising her children and immersing herself in seminary training.
Erin has initiated and facilitated small group discipleship for years. She teaches a women’s Bible study out of her home, leads prayer meetings, teaches Sunday school, and stays active with multiple missional advocacy and outreach programs in the metroplex.
For Erin, spiritual formation is like a team sport. “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” (Proverbs 27:17) We are created to live in relationship with one another, and we all need a safe place to feel belonging, be curious, playful, contemplative, even fearful and regretful. Small groups are integral to our formation in Christ and our love for our neighbor. They gift us accountability, both calming and disturbing our waters. Small groups are where we learn to be the church, not go to church.
Erin is the lucky wife of Vic Schmerbeck and the proud mother of five children aged twelve to twenty-two.
