This beautifully produced documentary, hosted by expert Keith Garner and shot at key locations, provides a comprehensive view of John Wesley’s life and legacy.
John Wesley had a calling upon his life to serve. Known as a man of great influence and passion for social justice, he carried a deep desire to take the message of the gospel to those who lived on the fringes of society. As the founder of the Methodist church, he had a vision for change in the ministry of outreach to the poor and marginalized, which led to major reforms that continue to this day.John Wesley was greatly impacted as a young boy when the rectory where he lived with his large family caught fire. Everyone escaped safely but John, who had to be rescued from an upper story window at great risk to those who braved the the massive fire and formed a human ladder to save him from certain death. After the family’s near tragedy, his parents were convinced he was saved for a unique purpose. John, greatly influenced by facing near death at a tender age, embraced his strong desire to obey God’s call for his life. His own dramatic rediscovery of God’s grace led him outside the walls of the church to preach to the masses. He shared the message of grace to everyone he met, with great personal conviction that “Christ had taken away my sins, even mine.” People believe John Wesley traveled the length and breadth of England more than any other man. His work spread throughout the world, and today, hundreds of years after his death, still challenges Christians to live a life of holiness and grace. A beautifully produced documentary, “John Wesley: The Man With a Mission” provides a view into the life of one of the most influential men of faith, and we are pleased to approve this film for viewers of all ages.
