In 1886, Moody was involved in the founding of the Chicago Evangelization Society, which was eventually renamed the Moody Bible Institute. He died on December 22, 1899, but before he did he preached to more than 100 million people. His legacy lives on in the Moody Bible Institute and the Moody Memorial Church.
