A Graduation “Thank You” Just for You!


In May, we celebrated with the Class of 2017! We want to thank each of you, our ministry partners, for the special role you played.

Each diploma is a reminder that God is using your gifts in powerful ways. These students leave Moody Bible Institute to serve God across the nation and the globe. You have successfully launched a wonderful, dedicated group of missionaries, preachers, counselors, evangelists, musicians, Bible translators, educators, and communicators.

Moody held four commencement exercises—two in Chicago, one in Spokane, Washington, and one in Plymouth, Michigan. Approximately 500 undergraduate and 135 seminary students took part in the ceremonies.

“These students join the over 42,000 living Moody alumni who are making an impact for Christ across the globe,” said Dr. Junias Venugopal, provost and dean of education for Moody Bible Institute.

“It has been an honor and privilege for Moody to be able to play a part in equipping these students and our prayer for them is that they will continue to grow and deepen their relationship with Christ and bring the gospel to where the Lord has called them.”



Our graduates want to say “thank you” for the important role you played:

I cannot express enough appreciation for your willingness to support my education. God has planted a heart in me to reach women with the Scriptures, and I would not be equipped without my Moody training! As I graduate this May, I can’t help but think about the many faces, names, prayers, and finances of people like yourself—people I’ve never met!—who have enabled me to get where I am!

By God’s grace, I will be found faithful as I continue to grow and am soon launched into ministry as a Christian worker. Thank you for everything!

- Kaitlyn, Ministry to Women major

Thank you so much for your support! Your donation is why I am able to afford to be a student at Moody. I would not be here learning how to share the Bible with people without your support and prayer!

- Andrew, Pastoral Studies major

I am a graduating senior, and I am so blessed by you! Knowing that you are supporting me and my peers through your generous gifts and prayers means everything to me. God bless you!

- Katie, Intercultural Studies major

Thank you so much for your loving gift to support Moody students as we are being equipped to teach the wonderful news of the Gospel. We are so encouraged to know that you and so many others are backing us up and sending us out for God’s glory!

- Stefanie, Children’s Ministry major

Thank you for your faithful giving. You have greatly helped me in preparing to answer God’s call on my life. I will be sure to faithfully steward the gift you have given with great gratitude and thankfulness.

- David, Biblical Exposition major

Thank you so very much for supporting me in getting my degree. I want to start a home for girls who have been rescued out of sexual slavery. I would not have been able to come to school without your help. Thank you so very much.

- Esther, Ministry to Victims of Sexual Exploitation major

Thank you so much for making it possible for me to grow in my understanding of God and His Word. I hope to use language learning to be a salty Christian in the world.

- Michaela, TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) major

Will You Help Launch the Next Generation of Godly Leaders?

Several ministry friends have given Moody a matching challenge. That means your gift by June 30 will have double the ministry impact!

Please give today and request your complimentary copy of Pastor Erwin Lutzer’s book Christ Among Other gods: A Defense of Christ in an Age of Tolerance. It is our thank-you for your gift of any size. Together, we can launch the next generation of Christian leaders to communicate God’s truth across the globe!

Christ Among Other gods

Is Jesus really the only way to God?

Learn how to explain and defend your faith in this informative book by Erwin Lutzer.

Dr. Lutzer, pastor emeritus of The Moody Church in Chicago, is a frequent Founder’s Week speaker and a regular preacher on Moody Radio. In this book he explains the uniqueness of Christ, the claims of Christianity, and why Jesus alone is “the way and the truth and the life.”
