On May 22, 2016, after 36 years of faithful service as Senior Pastor of The Moody Church, Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer transitioned to the role of Pastor Emeritus. In this role he acts as a “goodwill ambassador” for The Moody Church, continuing his broadcast, speaking, and writing ministry in Chicago and around the world. Pastor Lutzer was born and reared near Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He became Senior Pastor in 1980, and served in that role for 36 years. He is an award-winning author of more than twenty books, a celebrated international conference speaker, and the featured speaker on three radio programs: The Moody Church Hour, Songs in the Night, and Running to Win. These programs are available on the Moody Broadcasting Network, the Bible Broadcasting Network, Trans World Radio, and many Christian radio stations around the world. He and his wife, Rebecca, live in the Chicago area and have three married children and eight grandchildren.
