Moody Bible Institute Reviews
Moody Bible Institute and Moody Theological Seminary represent a wonderful place where growth takes place inside and outside the classroom. One of the most impactful experiences consists of being part of a great multicultural community of students, and seeing the God and the world through so many eyes from all the continents. The professors are high quality and both their teaching and their friendliness are life-transforming. Most importantly, I believe God is honored through the academic and ministry-oriented atmosphere, as well as through the relationships that define what Moody Bible Institute is. I highly recommend it.
This school is excellent for an education in ministry or the Bible. They are highly accredited and respected by many. I got a one year degree in Biblical Studies. It got me into ministry at some churches. But there are many Christians and churches that have no clue who DL moody was. Christians in churches have laughed and called it a fake college because it has the name moody in it. Family has also called it a fake college because the name moody. Employers other than churches also think it's fake because of the name and won't hire you. I have also learned that just because you went to Bible college does not mean you will ever be doing ministry in some local churches. You need to be liked by the right people in order to volunteer to do ministry. And that is mostly where it gets you you get to do some ministry in select churches for free and don't get paid. This is a great school if only it didn't have the moody name in it.
Moody Bible Institute is great for those who are conservative Christians pursuing a future in ministry. The International Ministries degree specifically prepares students for cross-cultural relations, challenges, and ministry. The professors not only have knowledge, but experience in this field. If you plan to do this for your life-long career and do not have a value to earn a high salary, I would recommend this degree. If there is a possibility that you may branch out beyond this field at any point, you may want to consider either doing a dual degree or pursuing another degree that is more broad in its applicability. Otherwise, you may be limited in what career you are able to pursue with the degree.
Moody Bible Institute is an excellent choice for students looking to study the Bible. The instructors are knowledgeable, personable and caring. I graduated from Moody Bible Institute having explored the reliability of scripture, culture, faith and theology. I would recommend Moody to any student.
