You sure chose some awesome examples to make your point! Think about coming back to present-day pastors at the end, to give closure to the point you are making. Well-thought out and pleasant to read.

As a life long Methodist - all I can say is Amen.
I grew up Methodist in N.C., but changed later. I remember all those changes of pastors.
I think your choice of words in describing your examples were pleasant and interesting to read. Check over you punctuation when using the word "but."

A minor tense error in the sentence ..
dispense love wherever there were hurting people ..
I believe the "there" should be changed to "are" or the word "dispense" should be changed to "dispensed" in order to correct the tense.

Other than those minor problems, I give you a "bravo" for a well written article!
