Broad, John

Broad, John an English Baptist minister, was born in London, January 22, 1809. He was convinced of sin in 1833, at the Wesleyan chapel in Hinde Street, Manchester Square, London, and soon afterwards found peace in Christ. He immediately gave himself to evangelical work among the neglected classes of the great metropolis. Alter a time he became pastor of a Church in Kensington, giving up a business which was yielding him a large profit. Here he remained nine years, and then became pastor of a Church in Hitchin, Herts, for sixteen years. In 1858 he visited Melbourne, Australia, for his health. On his return he preached at Hastings, October 3, 1858, and on the Saturday morning following he was found dead in his bed. See (Lond.) Baptist Handbook, 1859, page 45. (J.C.S.)
