Moody Spring 2021 Commencement Ceremonies
On Jan. 23, 2012 Moody Bible Institute welcomed Jim Elliott to the Chicago campus as the new vice president of Stewardship. Elliott comes to Moody with more than 25 years of service, most recently with Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kan., where he was the vice president for Advancement since 2002. Moody President Dr. Paul Nyquist announced the appointment of Elliott by the board of trustees on Dec. 12, 2011.
"Stewardship is a critical component in ensuring Moody has the resources needed to fulfill its vision to equip people around the globe with the truth of God’s Word," said Dr. Nyquist. "We are thrilled to have someone with Jim's experience and passion and look forward with excitement to what the Lord will do through him and the team he is leading."
As a member of the senior leadership team, Elliott has been tasked with overseeing the Stewardship Department which communicates with, responds to and serves Moody's more than 100,000 ministry partners and donors. Prior to Tabor College he worked in Advancement at Southeast Bible College in Birmingham, Ala., and in Development at Huntington University in Huntington, Ind. He also spent nine years as a missionary in Guam and Swaziland with Trans World Radio, a Moody Radio Global Partner.
"I am humbled by the opportunity to use my training to serve God at Moody," Elliott said. "And I am just as excited to be part of an organization whose heart and vision is to see the global advancement of the Word of God."
After graduating from Moody in 1983 he earned an M.A. in Communications from Wheaton College Graduate School and is presently completing an Ed.D. program in Educational Leadership from Kansas State University. He and his wife Karen, a graduate of Moody, have been married for 29 years, have a son and daughter in college and are active in their home church in Hillsboro, Kan.
