Awards

 

Alumni Awards

The Alumni Association recognizes alumni and faculty who exemplify a life of loyalty to Christ, honorable character, ardent service, and accountability to the Word of God as seen in 2 Timothy 2:15:

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

To be eligible for Alumnus of the Year or the Distinguished Service Award, nominees must have graduated from any of MBI's programs. Alumni who are married can be nominated as a couple. Faculty Citation Award recipients are nominated by department chairpersons for effectiveness in the classroom, writing achievements, significant public ministry, and involvement with students. The Alumni Board of Directors chooses all recipients.

All Moody alumni are encouraged to nominate individuals whom they would consider deserving of such recognition. To nominate an individual, fill out this form.
