John Wesley 1703-1791 Founder of Methodism. John Wesley was converted to Christ at the age of 35. Before his conversion, he had done missionary work among the American Indians as an Anglican minister. He was cast out of the Anglican Church and spent the rest of his life preaching in the fields and on the streets. He was up each morning before 5:00 for prayer and Bible study, and rode on horseback 15 to 20 miles a day, preaching four or five times daily.         During his lifetime, Wesley traveled 250,000 miles, preaching a total of 42,000 sermons. He died at the age of 88 and preached up to the very month in which he died.

ARTIST'S NOTE: The thoughtful and holy brooding of the man is pictured. The background illustrates his famous statement, "The world is my parish."
