I had the privilege of spending a number of my formative years studying the Scriptures at the Moody Bible Institute. There, I developed a deep affection for the Word of God.

(2 Timothy 2:15 KJV)

This was why I came to Bible College.

Here's How to Ensure That Your Easter Stream is Special

March 23, 2016

For most churches, Easter services are the most beautiful and important of the year.

We celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the salvation of mankind in the spring—a time when nature renews itself, echoing the message that life has begun anew. It’s as if everything is working together to proclaim God’s glory.

Why you should add lower thirds to your church live stream

March 15, 2016

 I had the privilege of spending a number of my formative years studying the Scriptures at the Moody Bible Institute. There, I developed not only a deep affection for the Word of God, but also for strolling the alluring streets of downtown Chicago.

Heading east of campus toward LaSalle Boulevard, I would regularly pass the Institute’s grand stone archway to read the sole verse etched on the wall:
