Francis Asbury

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Francis Asbury's An Extract From the Journal of Francis Asbury, Bishop of the Methodist-Episcopal Church in America, From August 7, 1771, to December 29, 1778 (1792). Asbury apprenticed as a metalworker before dedicating his life to winning souls for Christ. In his youth, Asbury found he became drawn to the animated worship services of English evangelicals, especially the sermons of John Fletcher, Thomas Haweis, Benjamin Ingham, Henry Venn, and George Whitefield. After experiencing conversion, Asbury joined a Methodist class meeting at West Bromwich and began preaching at age seventeen. Asbury's legacy rests on his contributions to American Methodism.
