MBI Founder’s Week

moody-bible-institute

There are some powerful music and messages coming out of Moody Bible Institute’s Founder’s Week.  If you’re interested, you can listen online or find a broadcasting station at www.foundersweek.com.  Sessions will continue through Friday.  The theme verse is I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord (Philippians 3:8).

Founder’s Week is a week-long event at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and features preaching from a variety of Christian teachers, pastors and musicians.  The story goes that the founder of Moody Bible Institute, D. L. Moody (1837-1899), once walked into a classroom and announced: “It’s my birthday.  Classes are canceled.  Let’s go for a sled ride!”  February 5th has been special to Moody Bible Institute ever since, although some wish the school’s founder could have been born during a warmer season!

Founder’s Week was established in 1901 to commemorate D. L. Moody and has continued to grow into an opportunity for alumni and others to gather, share the Word, and worship together.

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer (Acts 2:42).
