Moody Radio is celebrating Founder’s Week February 4–7, 2020. Moody Radio listeners are getting programs with solid biblical teaching centered on the theme, “For Such a Time as This.” The conference theme verse is Esther 4:14b: “…And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (ESV).
Founder’s Week is the oldest and largest free Bible conference in the country, with morning sessions on Moody Bible Institute’s Chicago campus and evening sessions at The Moody Church.
The conference is packed with today’s foremost biblical teachers, Christian musicians and reverent worship including powerful messages from Crawford Loritts, D.A. Horton, Francis Chan and Mark Jobe (Moody Bible Institute’s 10th president). Special guest musicians include Walter Owens, Streetlights, Community Music, and Phil Wickham along with the MBI music groups.
