Founder's Week, held annually since 1901, commemorates the Feb. 5 birthday of world-renowned 19th century pastor, preacher and Moody Bible Institute founder, Dwight Lyman Moody. Along with students, faculty and Moody employees, Founder's Week draws attendees from Chicagoland, the nation and the world. 

This spiritually enriching week provides an opportunity to learn from today's foremost Christian teachers and leaders through morning, afternoon and evening speaking sessions. Christian musical guests, along with Moody Bible Institute's student choirs and symphonic band, perform during conference sessions. Many Moody alumni return for class reunions during this one-of-a-kind homecoming week. 

Founder's Week is provided free of charge by the Moody Bible Institute. Millions of people tune into the conference on Moody Radio. For more information on listening in your area or online, please visit the Find a Radio Station page.
