    Description: Lithograph of Charles Haddon Spurgeon. 1881. On June 19, 1834, Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born at Kelvedon, Essex, England. At an early age he moved to Stambourne to live with his grandfather, a pastor. He was saved on December 15, 1850, and he was baptized on May 3, 1851. The next year he assumed the pastorate of the church at Waterbeach. In 1853 he was invited to supply the pulpit at the church in Southwark, London. By April 28 of the next year, that church called him as its pastor. The church at Southwark experienced such growth that the Metropolitan Tabernacle was built between 1859 and 1861. Due to illness, Spurgeon’s brother, James Archer, was appointed to be co-pastor. C. H. Spurgeon has been published extensively, most notably in the form of sermons. He was also a philanthropist, creating orphanages for boys and girls and starting the Pastors’ College. He died on January 31, 1892. JPG file (330 KB)
