Merry Christmas! This project has been in the works for a long time, and we have put out some very general ideas regarding online training, but now this is official!
We are thrilled to announce that in 2018 we will launch The Moody Center-Online. This will be a training center of educational resources for pastors and ministry volunteers to enhance and refine their ministries.
The online space is crowded with lots of teaching, but our goal is not to be another voice trying to change what you think. We are here to equip you to develop your own answers, think through tough situations, and form your own applications. The work you do matters, so we are here to support and challenge your endeavors.
Dr. James Spencer, Vice President and Dean of Moody Bible Institute, is leading this new initiative by enlisting elite authors and thinkers who will instruct you through varied learning methods. Stay tuned for our next release of our first group of authors who will launch our courses!
Spencer says, “The curriculum will have a biblical and theological foundation paired with strategies and resources for implementing paradigms and practices in diverse and distinct ministry settings. The goal is to come alongside local congregations and, in the spirit of D.L. Moody, train the men and women who are doing the good work of God in the church.”
This will be an exciting project to come together as the Church and strengthen the good works occurring. Whether seminary left you feeling unprepared, or you are facing burn-out from years of challenging ministry, or you need refined training but lack the time for the years a formal education requires, The Moody Center is here to build up your foundation so you can excel where the Lord has placed you. As Moody stood for, we believe training should be accessible to all, regardless of education level or experience, in order to glorify God in each individual’s life.
Why does all this matter? The Church exists to make Jesus known, and that is at the core of our passion. Moody reached millions of lives with the gospel, and he sparked movements that still continue to impact people. The healthier the body of Christ is, the greater His message shall be proclaimed. No work is too small, so we exist to stand in the gaps with each laborer.
This is a good story that is just beginning! We look forward to announcing more details we move towards the official launch.
