EDWARD PAYSON HART The Second Man of Free Methodism

In the last half of the 1850s, persecution and proscription made the formation of the Free Methodist Church a necessity for those dedicated to the gospel of holiness and ministry to the poor. Three years after launching the new Methodist denomination, founder and organizer Benjamin Titus Roberts found himself feeling alone, having lost his most loyal and trusted friends to premature deaths. However, waiting in the wings was a young Free Methodist minister, quietly building his circuit in the prairie lands of northern Illinois, who would soon be called upon to partner with Roberts and share the yoke of leadership for the next 30 years.
