Well-known as The Evangelist of the Nineteenth Century, Dwight Lyman Moody (1837) lived out his passion to preach the gospel with humility, simplicity and power to a lost and dying world - leading sinners to the Savior and equipping them as His disciples. Much of Moody's early ministry was with the youth at the YMCA. During the Civil War he served with the U.S. Christian Commission, seeing many suffering and dying men come to Christ. As a team, Moody and Ira Sankey evangelized and ministered in cities across America and in numerous European countries where revivals were born and thousands came to the faith. D. L. Moody founded the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.
