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.
