Today, Monday February 4, is the first day of the 112th annual Founder’s Week Conference 2013. Speakers including Tony Evans, John MacArthur, Janet Parshall and David Platt, along with students and faculty of Moody will focus on the theme, “Knowing Christ.”
Each year during the first week of February, the Moody Bible Institute celebrates the birthday of its founder, Dwight Lyman Moody, by closing the institute that week to remember Mr. Moody on February 5, the day of his birth.
Founder’s Week offers musical worship, uplifting fellowship and inspiring teaching from world-class bible teachers and today’s foremost Christian leaders.
“Founder’s Week is a very special and important event each year at Moody and we are looking forward to examining the Apostle Paul’s words in Philippians 3:8 about the surpassing value of knowing Christ,” said Dr. Paul Nyquist, president of Moody. “For those who will join us in person, by radio broadcast or the online stream, www.foundersweek.org. it is our prayer that it will be a time of great encouragement.” Dr. Nyquist will kick-off the conference Monday, Feb. 4, at 7:15 p.m., at The Moody Church in Chicago, Ill.
Evening sessions (7:15 p.m.) will take place at The Moody Church, while the morning (9:30 a.m.) and afternoon (2:15 p.m.) sessions will take place on the Chicago campus of Moody Bible Institute in Torrey-Gray Auditorium.
