John Wesley By: haily miller

John Wesley was born on June 17, 1703 in Epworth, Liconshire England. With 19 siblings. He was a very quite, righteous, and bookish type child growing up.
He went to school at an Anglican school , and his father was an Anglican preacher. His parents lived through adulthood teaching their son John about religion and morals faithfully to all 19 children.
John Wesley was schooled at Oxford university in 1720. He entered the charter house in London, in 1714. John majored in Anglican ministry. He worked for a society whose members took vows to lead holy lives and to take communion.
From the Holy club , Wesley sailed to Georgia to pastor. His experience proved to fail. When John tried to enforced the religious structure in his church, but they rebelled. John returned to England a bitter.
After speaking with another Moravian, Peter Boehler, Welsey concluded that he lacked saving faith. Wesley continued to try to be good, but still he remained frustrated. " i was indeed fighting continually, but not conquering,... i fell and rose , and fell again."
On may 24th, 1738 he had an experience that changed his life. One night he was describing the change in which God works through faith christ, and all the sudden he strangely felt his heart warm.He felt like he was alone with christ for salvation. And his assurance was given that his sins were to be washed away.Meanwhile another preacher from the holy club was having great success. His name was George Whitfield. But he needed help. George offered John a job and john took up his plea for help.
In 1787 wesley was acquired to register his lay preachers as none-anglicans. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, the american revolution isolated yankee methodists from their anglican connections. To support the americans, wesley independently ordained two lay preachers and appointed Thomas Coke as superintendant.
An indication of his organization genius, we know exactly how many followers Wesley had had when he died. 294 preachers, 771668 British members, 19 missionaries, and 43,265 american preachers with 198 preachers.Methodists number about 30 million worldwide. John Wesley died in in 1791. I think this verse is a symbol of how he lived...Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs-1 Corinthians 13:4-5.
