The Hard Road of a Methodist Circuit Rider


;

It’s difficult to comprehend the hardships faced by Methodist circuit riders in early America. It is estimated that Francis Asbury traveled some 270 thousand miles and preached 16,000 sermons during his tenure. The hardships of these pastors on horseback are well-documented in journals penned during days spent alone on the trail and in the personal effects in museums today. http://www.umc.org/videos
