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.
