The goal of Residence Life is to foster a residence hall environment where students experience caring relationships with people serving one another and encouraging each other to seek Christ and make connections between their faith and their everyday life. When students leave Moody, our hope is that they will apply what they have experienced in the residence halls and authentically model a life of faithfully following Jesus Christ. We hope they will intentionally foster caring relationships which reflect Christ's love for all people, be willing to speak words of encouragement and respond lovingly to breakdowns in integrity.

Floor Leadership

A Resident Assistant is assigned to each floor to provide leadership and build community. Every RA oversees a leadership team comprised of students who have a heart for ministry on the floor. The Leadership Team assists the RA in providing support and care to students, facilitating activities, and carrying out other administrative duties.


Bro-Sis (Brother-Sister) exists to foster community between men and women. Each men's floor is paired with a women's floor, providing students with opportunities for forming friendships. Bro-Sis RA's work together to plan worship nights, outings in the city, etc. Bro-Sis tables are also designated in the SDR so that you can break bread and fellowship together.

Campus Ministries

While the classroom provides an excellent space for academic learning, Moody's residential community provides a unique environment for learning that is relational, transformational, and holistic. In recognition of this, Campus Ministries works alongside Residence Life to provide intentional opportunities for students to walk alongside their peers as they seek to become more rooted in their relationship with Christ and grow in self-awareness, vulnerability, accountability, and prayer.

Life Groups

Campus Ministries intersects with Residence Life on the ground level through floor-based, community-focused, Christ-centered small groups known as Life Groups. Life Groups provide a holistic Spiritual Formation approach to a student's residential experience. Every floor will have a Life Group Leader who will be a part of the floor's Lead Team and will work closely with the RA or GRA to foster and build life-giving, Christ-centered community on the floor or hall. Through Life Groups, we hope that students will learn what it means to live life in community and put our learning into practice.
