The Ruth and Paul Manz organ was completed on July 2, 2004. At a question and answer session for staff, faculty and students, "The Church's One Foundation" was the first hymn played on the instrument after its completion.
Installed over two and a half weeks by four crew members from M.L. Bigelow & Company; David Chamberlin, Shayne Ward, Jarvis Rasmussen, and Dylan Young, it is the second-largest organ to date built by the company and is the only Bigelow organ in the Chicago area. Voicing was completed in October, 2004.
