Future Career Options

Moody Bible Institute is a Bible College and specializes in training students for working in vocational ministry settings as well as in the non-profit sector and in the workforce.

Though some majors and emphasis areas are directed to a specific type of ministry, all of our majors prepare students to step into ministry positions no matter where they receive their paycheck. Some of these positions pay salary and benefits while ministry positions may depend on employees to fundraise support to cover the cost of their salary and benefits—it is important to be prepared for these possible future challenges.
