Samuel Pearce (1766-1799), Minister of Cannon Street Baptist Church and member of the Baptist Missionary Society, is a neglected figure in history. This wonderfully spiritual man motivated more to the ministry of missions through his young life, than many did during their whole lives.
I wanted you to be made aware of an excellent little paper, “Swallowed Up in God: The Impact of Samuel PEarce on Modern Missions” by Adam Covington. Please read and digest and be challenged by this brief overview of Pearce’s life and ministry and legacy. You can find it here as the most recent White Paper here at The Center for Theological Research at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
