John Wesley (1703-1791) was a Church of England clergyman and the organizational genius of eighteenth century Methodism. Along with his brother, Charles Wesley (1707-1788), a gifted poet and hymn writer, John set the course for a decades-long revival of Christian religion centered in England, but with an impact touching adjoining countries, eventually reaching the British colonies that later became the United States.
