John Wesley

Offer Them Christ

Toward the end of his life,

John Wesley commissioned Thomas Coke

to go to America and ordain Francis Asbury

and others into the ministry.

He stood at the pier

and, as the boat departed, said to Coke,

"Offer them Christ, Thomas"

This was reported to be his final instruction

as Coke waved farewell to his mentor

and left for America.

The gesture and pose of this sculpture

has Wesley offering "The Word" to the viewer

along with his instruction for us to

"Offer Them Christ".
