Construction of Chapman Center nearing completion

Moody Bible Institute is constructing the Chapman Center, a global media center on the Chicago campus, named for bestselling author and Moody Bible Institute alumnus, Dr. Gary D. Chapman.

For the first time in Moody’s history, Moody Radio and Moody Publishers will be located in a single workspace, resulting in unprecedented collaboration and synergy in the area of biblical expertise and media creation so that more people will be reached with the gospel. Students will also have unique opportunities to learn from and serve alongside Moody’s media professionals in the Chapman Center and take those skills into all areas of the globe to which God calls them.

Construction Update: Currently, bathrooms are being completed along with the exterior east side of the building. A green roof covered with vegetation and a growing medium over a waterproofing membrane will be installed later this month. During the summer of 2018, interior walls will be painted, and ceilings, light fixtures, flooring and elevators will be installed with a final completion and checklist being developed in order to prepare for final inspections.
