Founder's Week 2013 Charter Coach Trip to Chicago

Founder's Week 2013 is coming to Moody Bible Institute Feb. 4–8. You're invited to join us for a charter coach trip to a large portion of this annual event held on the campus of MBI in Chicago. 

Trip Details

The trip will be hosted by MBI regional stewardship department representatives and Moody Radio Cleveland staff members. Departure for Chicago from three pickup points will be Wednesday, Feb. 6, (arriving in time for dinner and the evening session) and returning to Ohio Saturday, Feb. 9. Our charter coaches will provide shuttle service to and from the MBI campus, Moody Memorial Church (for the Founder’s Week sessions), and the Residence Inn by Marriott Downtown Chicago.

Meals and activities are included in the price of the tour, including Wednesday’s lunch at the Sauder Barn Restaurant in Archbold, Ohio. While in Chicago, meals will be provided on the MBI campus in the Student Dining Room and the Commons in the Alumni Student Center.

No meal, however, compares to the spiritual food we’ll receive as we attend the sessions throughout our time at Founder’s Week. Founder’s Week repeatedly assembles an unrivaled gathering of premier leaders, authors and musical artists of the faith. Wednesday evening’s speaker is scheduled to be: Al Mohler; Thursday: David Platt, Philip Ryken and Tony Evans; Friday: D.A. Carson, Rod Cooper and John MacArthur. See the complete conference schedule.

The cost for this four-day/three-night bus tour is $185 per person (room rate separate). The tour cost includes round-trip transportation to Chicago, local transportation to Founder’s Week events, luggage handling and meals (except Thursday evening). Admission to Founder’s Week sessions is free of charge with a free-will offering being taken.

The room rate is $113/night for studio suites and $119/night for one-bedroom suites.

The coach tour and the rooms are booked separately. So, making your reservation is a two-step process
