Students, staff, and faculty at Moody Bible Institute were happy to welcome our ninth president today, Dr. Paul Nyquist.
The MBI website reports:
After an extensive nine-month presidential search, the Board of Trustees is delighted to announce Dr. Paul Nyquist, current president and CEO of Avant Ministries, has been unanimously appointed as the next president of the Moody Bible Institute.
“Being appointed as Moody’s ninth president is both a high honor and a solemn responsibility. To pick up the presidential mantle from the gifted men who have preceded me is the greatest honor I have ever received. I am profoundly humbled to be selected. But, being Moody’s president also carries the charge of guarding a legacy that is unparalleled in Christian higher education. Moody’s reach and reputation make it absolutely unique in this world. Therefore, I know and embrace the fact that Moody must remain Moody under my watch. I accept that charge and, by God’s grace, will fulfill it.” –Dr. Paul Nyquist
