We believe God uses business leaders to fuel great movements of God. We call them Gospel Patrons.
God raised up William Tyndale an English preacher, and Humphrey Monmouth a wealthy cloth merchant, to steer their nation back to faith in Jesus Christ. They both had a part to play. Tyndale’s was to challenge a thousand year old tradition, the Latin Vulgate, and give 6 million English speakers their first English translation of the Bible. Monmouth funded Tyndale, strategized with him, and smuggled Bibles back into hostile England. Tyndale was later martyred on account of this work, but the fruit of their partnership birthed nothing short of a reformation that shook England and then the world.
God joined Lady Huntingdon, a single-minded patroness, with Geroge Whitefield, a passionate preacher. Lady Huntingdon burned to use her status and connections to bring the gospel to the aristocracy of England. Whitfield was unusually gifted to speak to crowds of rich and poor. Lady Huntingdon opened the door. She gave Whitfield a powerful platform to reach Britain’s elite, as well as the financial support to travel up and down the American colonies preaching the gospel. Together, they fueled The Great Awakening.
God brought together an English sailor turned cleric, John Newton, and one of the wealthiest businessmen in all of England, John Thornton, for the advancement of his kingdom. Newton played the part of a patriarch to England’s future church leaders, missionaries, and leading laymen, among them William Wilberforce. Thornton patroned the first 1,000 book print run of Newton’s hymns, causing us to have our most precious anthem “Amazing Grace”. Their partnership helped raise up two generations of preachers and shape the political and spiritual future of their nation.
