C.H. Spurgeon 13

C.H. Spurgeon 13

Description: Spurgeon¬ís eminent speaking abilities wedded to his vast knowledge of the Scriptures were almost immediately put to use. Less than two years after his conversion, when Spurgeon was but 17 years of age, he was called to serve as pastor of Waterbeach Baptist Chapel. In 1854 he was called to serve as pastor of New Park Street Baptist Chapel, Southwark, London. Soon that building was filled to overflowing, necessitating the building of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in 1859. Apart from periodic bouts with illness which kept him from his pulpit ministry, Spurgeon preached at the Metropolitan Tabernacle until June 7, 1891, when he preached his last sermon. He died the following January at Mentone, S. France. During his 38 years of ministry in London, 14,692 members were added to the church (Spurgeon interviewed most of them personally!). In addition to his pulpit labors, he began a ¬ďPastor¬ís College¬Ē to train men ¬ďevidently called to preach the Gospel,¬Ē helped to found the London Baptist Association, established an orphanage (known as ¬ďSpurgeon¬ís Homes¬Ē), and gave his assistance for the establishment of various other charitable and religious organizations. The Metropolitan Tabernacle, under Spurgeon¬ís remarkable leadership, became a veritable beehive of evangelistic and philanthropic activity in London and its environs.
