History

The historic Moody Bible Institute arch, viewed from within the central plaza.

In 1886 D.L. Moody established the Chicago Evangelization Society, for the "education and training of Christian workers, including teachers, ministers, missionaries and musicians who may completely and effectively proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ."

In 1870, four years after opening a church on Illinois Street (the forerunner of today's Moody Church), Dwight Moody was introduced to Emma Dryer. Emma was a principal and teacher at Illinois State Normal University. Dryer was also deeply devoted to teaching the youth of Chicago about Christian doctrine and Scripture. In 1871, after the Great Chicago Fire devastated much of the Chicago area, Moody began to simultaneously minister to the needs of those damaged financially and physically by the fire. Moody invited all the youth to his Church, and Dryer was invited to teach Bible Study classes to these masses of people. This fueled Moody's interest in educational purposes, which would later lead to the birth of the Institute. The Moody Church (sometime also referred to as Moody Memorial Church) is a historic non-denominational protestant brick-façade church on the near-north side of Chicago. ... Illinois State University is a public university in Normal, Illinois and is the oldest public institution of higher education in the state. ... Artists rendering of the fire, by John R Chapin, originally printed in Harpers Weekly The Great Chicago Fire was a conflagration that burned from Sunday October 8 to early Tuesday October 10, 1871, killing hundreds and destroying about four square miles in Chicago, Illinois. ...


In 1883, Dryer, with the permission of Moody, organized and headed what was known as the "May Institute." These were weekly meetings in which church members would meet and pray. Most importantly however, would be the open discussions facilitated among the church members. Many of the church members began to request that Moody open up a new school. This school would serve as a training school for the youth of the Church, a place where future evangelists could learn the skills necessary to carry on in the Revivalist tradition. On January 22, 1886, Moody addressed church members with the following, "I tell you what, and what I have on my heart I believe we have got to have gap-men, men to stand between the laity and the ministers; men who are trained to do city mission work. Take men that have the gifts and train them for the work of reaching the people." This formal meeting, held at Farwell Hall, resulted in the group founding the Chicago Evangelization Society, which was later renamed the Moody Bible Institute after Moody's death.


Shortly after MBI was established, in 1894, Moody Publishers was founded under the name Bible Institute Colportage Association (BICA). This publishing house made Moody’s vision real by publishing books to reach a larger audience of Christians and non-Christians.


In 1926, the Institute expanded its reach beyond education and publishing by sponsoring the first non-commercial Christian radio station in America, WMBI. Over time, MBI’s radio outreach grew to the Moody Broadcasting Network (MBN) which now owns and operates 35 commercial-free stations and provides programming via satellite to more than 700 outlets.

Moody Bible Institute's flagship ministry and founding purpose is education. Its goal is to train students specifically for full-time ministry in churches and parachurch organizations. Ministry intent is a necessary prerequisite for admission. All undergraduate school tuition is funded by outside donations. Undergraduates are only responsible for room, board, certain fees, and books. The Institute has chosen to remain independent of Federal Title IV educational financial aid programs, therefore leaving the student with a need to find an alternative way to fund their end of the financial responsibilities of attending the Institute. The school offers both undergraduate and graduate-level education in both traditional and distance-learning models.

Student Life

Students engage in the traditional game of "buck buck", played annually during the Sunday night vespers service before classes begin.

All students are expected to adhere to a Student Life Guide (SLG) that provides guidelines for Christian living while on and off campus. Some of the concessions that students make in order to attend the Institute include refraining from tobacco, drinking alcohol, and social dancing. Freshmen and sophomores under age 21 have a curfew on campus. In the spring of 2006, the student body voted to keep a prohibition on DVD viewing in the dorms. While a majority of the student body was in favor of the change, the proposal did not receive the two-thirds majority required. Students living in Jenkins Hall (generally married and graduate school students) are exempt from this rule. All students are allowed to attend movies in theaters or other off-campus venues.

Moody also hosts intramural athletics including flag football, ultimate Frisbee, basketball, volleyball, soccer, water polo, and softball.


Residence Life sponsors the Brother/Sister floor program (Bro/Sis), which provides opportunities for students to interact with other male and female students of diverse backgrounds. Shared meals, times of prayer and worship, open houses, city outings, and other activities are all a part of the Bro/Sis.

Broadcasting

Moody Broadcasting Network (MBN) is one of the largest Christian radio networks in the country. The Moody Broadcasting Network in a radio network affiliated with the Moody Bible Institute. ...


MBN got its start seemingly by accident. A violent storm in October 1925 prevented the talent for WGES’ scheduled broadcast from performing on the radio. This opened the door for two cornet-playing MBI students, who happened to be on-site and could fill the time slot. Year 1925 (MCMXXV) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Less than a year later WMBI was launched, now the oldest Christian radio station in the country. Despite changing technology, audiences and formats, the station has maintained a presence on the air for eight decades. Moody Broadcasting Network (MBN) is one of the largest Christian radio networks in the country. ...


This station was the beginning of what would come to be known as the Moody Broadcasting Network (MBN). By the end of the 1960s, the network’s potential audience had increased to 30 million listeners.
