History of Methodism on the Eastern Shore of Virginia

Student Andrew Cropper
Faculty Mentor(s)
Department Religious Studies
Course RELST 326 : Methodism


History of Methodism on the Eastern Shore of Virginia will be looking at how the Methodist religion came to the Eastern Shore. I will be looking at some of the prominent itinerant ministers that served the Eastern Shore and talk about their message that they brought to the people. I will be also looking at the formation of the Methodist church on the Shore from the beginning as camp meetings to creating Cokesbury and Downings Chapel and how they broke away and formed the individual churches that are still around today.
