Founder’s Day 2023 — February 3, 2023
Founder’s Week 2023 — October 18–20, 2023

If you’ve loved traveling to Chicago each February for Founder’s Week—but haven’t enjoyed battling the Windy City’s blustery winter weather—we have exciting news to share with you. To make it easier to visit Moody Bible Institute for this beloved annual free Bible conference, Founder’s Week will now take place each October starting in 2023. Mark your calendars to join us from October 18–20 for three memorable days of inspiring teaching and worship!

The good news doesn’t end there. To help transition Founder’s Week this year from February to October, we invite you to attend a special Founder’s Day on Friday, February 3, 2023 at Moody Bible Institute. This one-time all-day celebration will commemorate the life and ministry of Moody Bible Institute Founder D. L. Moody through powerful teaching and preaching sessions, exclusive activities, and a performance by contemporary worship band Shane and Shane.

The theme for Founder’s Week 2023 and Founder’s Day is Resolve: Standing Firm Under Pressure. The theme is based on the life of Daniel and his steadfast determination to boldly follow God while living and working in a society that blatantly rejected Him. Come to Founder’s Day and Founder’s Week and be motivated, challenged, and equipped to walk faithfully with Christ in a post-Christian culture.
