    As a student at Moody’s Chicago campus, you get more than a Bible education. Our world-class faculty has traveled the globe ministering to others in Christ’s name, and they will train you to do the same. Your faculty mentors will help you develop your own ministry focus as you learn to apply God’s Word faithfully to everyday life.


    “I have the privilege of helping [my] students become the living curriculum for students in the classroom and I get to model that for them every day. I hope my legacy is that they will want to be role-models of Jesus Christ to their students, and I hope they never lose that passion for being so.”
    —Mary Martin, Associate Professor of Educational Ministries.

    In Chicago, students live in on-campus residence halls together, fostering community through caring relationships, leadership and mentoring opportunities, shared ministry calling and everyday encouragement to seek Christ. 

    Since students spend most of their time outside of the classroom, living beside fellow students, Residence Life is a vital part of a Moody education.
