Charles H. Spurgeon
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) was born in Essex, England. Converted at a young age, Spurgeon delivered his first sermon when he was only sixteen and went on to become a pastor the following year. Within a short time he was preaching to more than ten thousand people at each service. His long ministry in London resulted in sixty-three volumes of published sermons and the founding of several orphanages, as well as an evangelical pastors' college.
