John Wesley, born the 15th of 19 children in 1703, is known for two things: co-founding Methodism and his tremendous work ethic.
In the 1700s, when land travel was by walking, horseback or carriage, Wesley logged more than 4,000 miles a year. During his lifetime he preached about 40,000 sermons.
Wesley was a natural organizer and approached everything diligently, especially religion. It was at Oxford University in England that he and his brother Charles (writer of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing) participated in a Christian club in such an orderly manner that critics called them Methodists, a title which they gladly embraced
As priests in the Church of England, John and Charles travelled from Great Britain to Georgia, in the American colonies in 1735 to preach to the Indians.
