The Wesleyan Church’s Vision For The World!
Dear Visionary Leader:
The Wesleyan Church is an evangelical, holiness Christian denomination spanning the globe through 100 nations. The church is part of the holiness movement and has its roots in the teachings of John Wesley. At the present time, visionary leadership is being applied to challenge the Wesleyan Church to double in size in the next several years. There is a mighty Holy Spirit anointing up the Wesleyans in the 21st Century.
Dr. Jo Anne Lyon, the General Superintendent of the Wesleyan Church, received the Global Synergize Award for 2015 on January 14, 2015, in Orlando, Florida. Each year, the Billion Soul Network recognizes two synergistic leaders who have demonstrated a Kingdom-mindedness toward the finishing of the Great Commission. Dr. Lyon is casting a global vision and encouraging Evangelicals everywhere to serve together until the whole world has heard the Gospel of Christ.

On August 31, 1997, I got off a plane in London, England to learn the tragic news of Princess Diana’s death. I will never forget the feeling I had while riding in a taxi, going to the hotel where I would spend the week in London. Since 1991, when our first child, Jennifer died, I have often given deep reflection over “the end in mind” and our eternal reward. Just a few weeks ago, a friend of mine sent me an email with this question: “If you had 10 hours in London, what would you do before your next flight?”
I wrote him back and told him to go to the Bunhill Fields Cemetery where John Bunyan (author of Pilgrim’s Progress), Susannah Wesley (Mother of Charles and John Wesley) Daniel Defoe (author of Robinson Crusoe), William Blake (Romantic Age Painter), Charles Wesley (6,000 hymns) and others are buried. Then, I encouraged him to go across the street from Bunhill Fields Cemetery to John Wesley’s house and chapel. These are the locations of his death and his first church, respectfully.
While Wesley was dying on 2 March 1791, his friends gathered around him. Wesley grasped their hands and said repeatedly, “Farewell, farewell.” At the end, he said “The best of all is, God is with us”, lifted his arms and raised his feeble voice again, repeating the words, “The best of all is, God is with us.” He was entombed at Wesley’s Chapel which he built in City Road, London, in England. The site also is now both a place of worship and a visitor attraction, incorporating the Museum of Methodism and John Wesley’s House.
I encourage you begin with the end in mind each day and visit as many cemeteries possible. As a result of John Wesley’s faithfulness to multiply fellow-leaders in the end of his life, his writings and teachings have become a fountainhead of Christianity even unit this day! Blessings.
