Atlanta, GA - The Holy Club, the name given to John and Charles Wesley’s group by their fellow collegians in mockery of their emphasis on devotions, was the first sign of what later became Methodism. Begun by Charles and led by John after his return to Oxford University in 1729, the Holy Club members fasted until 3 PM on Wednesdays and Fridays, received Holy Communion once each week, studied and discussed the Greek New Testament and the Classics each evening in a member’s room, visited (after 1730) prisoners and the sick, and systematically brought all their lives under strict review.
Gammon’s Holy club is an accountability group that meets once each week during the academic calendar year. We have a preaching lab and we discuss John Wesley’s 21 questions. We have learned that the Holy Club has allowed students to connect better, it has allowed students to learn their style of preaching and it allows us to network with other students.
This Fall classes are 100% online, which means that we have to shift our in-person Holy Club to a virtual atmosphere. This year Holy Club will start on September 14, 2020, over ZOOM. Our doors are open to other students that would like to participate in Holy Club, click here.
