Short Biography:

For 50 years he rode about the country on horseback, preaching daily, largely in the open air. His sermons became the doctrinal standard of the Wesleyan Methodist Church.

He was born at Epworth, Lincolnshire, where his father was the rector, and went to Oxford University together with his brother Charles, where their circle was nicknamed Methodists because of their religious observances.

He was ordained in the Church of England in 1728 and returned to his Oxford college in 1729 as a tutor.

In 1735 he went to Georgia, USA, as a missionary. On his return he experienced "conversion" in 1738, and from being rigidly High Church developed into an ardent Evangelical. His Journal gives an intimate picture of the man and his work.
