Barde, Jean Charles

Barde, Jean Charles, a Reformed minister of Switzerland, was born at Geneva, Sept. 29, 1803, where he also prepared himself for the ministry. In 1827 he went to Lyons, where he labored for ten years. From thence he went to London, where he ministered to the Swiss congregation, and returned to his native place in 1830, where he was destined to labor till his end. Barde was no brilliant preacher, but he soon became the nucleus of Christian activity, which he developed in the formation of evangelical societies and other Christian enterprises tending to promote new spiritual life everywhere. He died July 12, 1878, greatly lamented by the Christians of the Church of Geneva. (B. P.)
