Moody Church Media Announces Expansion of Teaching Team

Chicago, IL — January 8, 2024

Moody Church Media is thrilled to announce a significant expansion in its teaching team with the introduction of Pastor Philip Miller, who became the 17th Senior Pastor of The Moody Church in July, 2020. In this pivotal role, Pastor Philip brings a love for the gospel, insightful biblical teaching, and a passion for radio and online outreach which is aligned with the vision of Moody Church Media.

Starting February 18, 2024, Pastor Philip Miller will be the primary preacher and host on the weekly broadcast of the Moody Church Hour. Pastor Philip's teaching is now available on alongside timeless resources from previous senior pastors (including Dr. Warren Wiersbe, Alan Redpath, and more) throughout 160 years of rich history. 

Pastor Erwin Lutzer, the longest serving Senior Pastor to date (1980-2016), will continue to preach, travel, and write for Moody Church Media as Pastor Emeritus. Moving forward, Pastor Lutzer’s teaching, which has ministered to millions over the last four decades, will continue to broadcast on the daily program, Running To Win, as well as Songs In The Night.

As Moody Church Media continues to grow, Pastor Philip’s strategic addition to the teaching team underscores our commitment to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to new generations and around the world.

Upon Pastor Philip's Acceptance Of The Moody Church's Call, March, 2020

Let me be among the first to congratulate Philip Miller on being called as the new Senior Pastor of The Moody Church!

I am pleased that after years of prayer and waiting, God has brought him to us. When he and I met some time ago, I sensed that he was the man of God we had been waiting for. He has my complete support and blessing and I look forward to doing all that I can to make his ministry at The Moody Church successful!

Rebecca joins me in celebrating this important moment. We are excited as The Moody Church embarks on a new future.
