Dr. Gary Chapman, Moody alumnus and New York Times bestselling author and speaker, was honored at a special celebration event for the 30th anniversary of his book, the 5 Love Languages®. The event was hosted by Moody Radio and Moody Publishers during the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dr. Mark Jobe, president of the Moody Bible Institute, presented the Ministry Impact Award to Dr. Chapman to honor the milestone which represents a significant achievement in the number of lives impacted through his books and Moody Radio programs.

“I’m thankful to be associated with Dr. Gary Chapman for many reasons,” stated Mark Jobe. “He’s a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute and has been committed to his local church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, by serving there for more than fifty years.” Jobe went on to say, “Dr. Chapman has been an inspiration to people around the world through his writing and teaching ministries. We’re proud to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 5 Love Languages® and present Dr. Chapman the Ministry Impact Award.”

After receiving the award, Dr. Chapman responded with these words, “I am often asked by people to explain the success of the 5 Love Languages®, selling as it has over the past 30 years. My long and short answer to that question is ‘God,’ and I always want to give Him the credit. And I couldn’t have done it without the help from the team at Moody Publishers and I’m deeply grateful for the talents they have used to share this book with the world.”
