George Mueller (1805-1898)

George Meuller of Bristol

A Brief Biography of George Mueller

God used George Mueller wonderfully in an abundance of ministries. Simultaneously he pastored a church of 1,200 members; operated Sunday schools that taught and evangelized thousands of children; housed, fed clothed, taught and evangelized 2,050 orphans annually for decades; supported 187 missionaries; organized the Scriptural Knowledge Institute that distributed vast quantities of Bibles, Scripture portions, and tracts. Relying solely upon God’s Word, the Holy Spirit, and prayer he supported all of these works.

At the age of seventy he began a series of missionary speaking tours that took him to Europe, Asia, North American, and Australia. Mr. Mueller was an educated man able to preach in English, German and French without the need of an interpreter. He also was well versed in both Greek and Hebrew. Thousands attended the meetings at which he spoke. In addition, he received hundreds of invitations that he was unable to accept.

Mr. Mueller never accepted a salary for any of these ministries. Neither did he tell anyone of his personal need nor any of the ministries needs. He told only God and God honored and anointed him mightily.

The work continued long after his death (at least until the end of World War II, the last data I have available) with the same abundance of God’s blessing of the ministries.

Dr. A. T. Pierson (1837-1911), pastor of Fort Road Presbyterian Church in Detroit, Michigan, knew Mr. Mueller personally and wrote the biography you can read here at BSMI.

In my opinion Dr. Pierson’s biography of Mr. Mueller is not simply a report of what happened in Mr. Mueller’s life. It really shows you the man whom God used. For a lasting spiritual glow and blessing, read a chapter a day (an average of about 8 pages per chapter) until you finish the book. You’ll be glad you did.
