Moody Bible Institute offers a variety of opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom and gain actual ministry experience.
Moody offers study abroad options for students in multiple locations, including Italy, Greece, Ireland and Scotland.
Students gain hands-on ministry experience through weekly PCM assignments and ministry internships. Ministry opportunities abound in churches, youth outreach programs, homeless shelters, community centers, refugee ministries and more.
Students may travel on short-term PCM trips in the U.S. and abroad during spring break. Previous trips have included service in Utah, Oklahoma's Choctaw Indian Nation, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, England, Israel, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
This program embeds students with ministries located in some of Chicago's most challenging neighborhoods. It is designed to spiritually challenge students and give them the experience of living and working in an urban ministry.
Moody's sports teams and Sports Ministry regularly travel overseas, using sports as a way of communicating the good news of Jesus. Moody's athletic teams have ministered in such countries as China, France, Egypt, Nigeria, Slovakia, Turkey, the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Columbia, Germany, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
The Music Department of Moody Bible Institute has four music ensembles: Chorale, Men's Collegiate Choir, Symphonic Band, and Women's Concert Choir & Handbell Ensemble. Each ensemble participates in a winter tour (mid-January), spring tour (second and third week in March) and an occasional summer tour. In addition to these tours, the ensembles also perform several Chicagoland concerts during the spring semester.
