The campus at Northfield is steeped in history. From Moody’s Birthplace, to the 2,300 seat auditorium, to Round Top and Witness Grove, the Moody Center campus is a museum in and of itself. We will be making improvements to the campus in order to preserve and protect historic buildings, as well as to enhance and restore the natural beauty of the campus.
Our goal is for visitors to understand not only the history but the spiritual significance that the buildings and sites on the Moody Center campus represent. Our commitment is to proclaim God and the gospel throughout the property as we seek to make the Moody Center a destination for both those coming for rest and retreat and those coming with a historical interest.
We have already created a prayer walk that can be used as a self-guided tour of the sites on campus. The walk offers historical information on each building and site, as well as highlighting God, His work in the life of D.L. Moody, and the gospel of salvation offered to all who are willing to confess Jesus as Lord.
In 2021, we will be making improvements to various outdoor sites including Witness Grove, as well as completing repairs to the Moody birthplace to preserve and protect this historic location (“Enhance and Restore – 2021”). In addition, we will be seeking to modernize the auditorium while retaining the historic look and feel of the space (“Enhance and Restore – Auditorium”)
