Dr. Charlie Dyer joined the administration of Moody Bible Institute as Provost in July 2000. Before coming to Moody, Charlie served for 20 years in multiple administrative and faculty roles at Dallas Theological Seminary ultimately becoming Executive Vice President under Chuck Swindoll.

In addition to his administrative skills, Charlie is an Old Testament scholar as well as an authority on Middle Eastern history and geography. A licensed tour guide to Israel, he has traveled extensively throughout the Middle East over the past 25 years, leading over 70 different trips throughout the region to countries including Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Greece, and Turkey. He twice visited Iraq as an official invited guest of Saddam Hussein’s government.

Though his role at Moody is primarily administrative, Charlie still spends some time in the classroom, teaching two electives on the Major Prophets. He also occasionally teaches a course on rapid reading that is open to students and staff. In addition, he is active in educational accreditation. He served on the Commission of the Association for Biblical Higher Education—the professional accrediting body that oversees Bible colleges—for four years, and he is currently serving of the ABHE Board of Directors.

When he is not working at Moody, traveling to the Middle East, or speaking, Charlie enjoys spending his time writing, reading, and golfing. He is a devoted (some would say fanatical) Macintosh computer user, and he collects antiquities—especially oil lamps from biblical times.

Charlie and his wife, Kathy, have been married for over 33 years, and they have two grown children—Ben and Becky. Becky and her husband are both graduates of Moody.
