Dwight L. Moody: A Man Ahead of His Time

In 1837, Dwight Lyman Moody was born.

Between his birth and his death on December 22, 1899, Moody set a course that has impacted generations of young men and women, through one of America’s most respected Christian institutions: Moody Bible Institute.

It’s said Moody believed the “Great Commission” in the Gospel of Matthew called him to make disciples, not mere converts.

Teaching the Bible to Confederate prisoners in Union camps.

Founding the Northfield School for Women—unprecedented for the time— teaching women who would not have the opportunity to get an education.

Establishing Sunday Schools, youth camps, classes for adults to learn English, and in 1886 founding Moody Bible Institute, where today more than 5,000 young men and women are engaging with the Bible.
