After ‘challenging times,’ Moody Bible Institute inaugurates new president

CHICAGO (RNS) — Sara Nimori, president of the student government at Moody Bible Institute, said students were shocked and saddened last year to hear that the school’s president had resigned.

J. Paul Nyquist, its former president, had worked to make the evangelical Christian school a welcoming place for a diverse student body.

But his tenure became controversial. In response, the school’s board of trustees decided Nyquist and two other leaders had to go.

A year later, the school formally installed its new president in the same auditorium where students heard that first announcement — a move that felt bittersweet, Nimori said.

“So much of this journey has just been mourning mixed with joy,” she told the audience gathered for the occasion.
