Moody Bible Institute has formed a Presidential Search Committee to identify its next president and has appointed The Dingman Company as search consultants. The Moody Trustees are firmly committed to finding a proven leader who embraces Moody’s foundation in God’s Word, as well as our mission to take the gospel across the globe, cultures, and generations.

Historically, Moody’s presidents have been pastors or educational leaders. Recognizing the special skills needed to lead Moody’s complex organization, the search committee will also consider candidates from the business world or parachurch ministries. The Dingman Company was selected for its long experience in finding leaders for corporate and nonprofit organizations, including Christian colleges, mission organizations, and Christian broadcasting and media.

For those who are interested in this position, or for those who wish to suggest a potential candidate, please contact Bruce Dingman at (818) 378-7755 or


As we depend on the Lord and trust in His timing during the selection process, please join us in prayer.
  1. That the search for a new president will be fueled by prayer and directed by God
  2. That the search committee will remain diligent and prayerful during the process
  3. That God will reveal a person of great character and heart for ministry
  4. That the search committee will discern the Lord’s will in selecting candidates
  5. For Moody employees, staff, and students during the transition
