“The Chapman Center will help propel Moody into an unprecedented expansion of education, radio, and publishing ministry in our long history.”

- Dr. Paul Nyquist, Moody President

 

Construction of the Chapman Center is underway

Moody Global Ministries is constructing the Chapman Center, a global media center on the Chicago campus, named for bestselling author and Moody Bible Institute alumnus, Dr. Gary D. Chapman. Dr. Chapman and his wife, Karolyn, gave a cornerstone gift for the project while Moody continues to raise funds for its completion.

For the first time ever, Moody Radio and Moody Publishers will be able to collaborate in a single workspace. Featuring state-of-the-art work spaces and radio broadcast production studios, the Chapman Center will also serve as a hands-on space for students to learn from and work with media professionals to impact the world for Christ.

Construction Update: Construction is well underway. As of July 1, 2017, the concrete grade beams have been excavated, formed and poured for the foundation of the building. In addition, the two stair towers and elevator shaft have been erected to the third floor height, and the steel structure for the first two floors is in place. Over the next several months, crews will be erecting the steel for the final two floors, along with installing the exterior walls around the building. Scroll down to view time-lapse videos of these construction milestones and learn more about the Chapman Center. Photos of the construction progress are also available on Moody’s Facebook page.
