Moody Bible Institute's 116th Founder’s Week will take place Feb. 6−10, focusing on the theme “Heirs with Christ.”

“’We are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ,’ is taken from Romans 8:17, and the scripture for which Founder’s Week is based,” said Moody president, Dr. Paul Nyquist.

“Throughout the week we are going to explore this wonderful truth and its implications for the Christian life. No matter where we are at in our walk, knowing that we are heirs with Christ because the Spirit of God dwells within us must deeply impact us and cause us to rejoice and look forward with hope.”
