HENRY MOORHOUSE (1840–1880) was born in Manchester, England. He was converted when a young businessman. He married Mary in 1870. He delivered his first address to a large room of women, and was discouraged. He continued to preach and gained the Lord’s blessing. His young appearance earned him the title of the “boy preacher.” He was an itinerant lay preacher who drew large crowds with great effect. He went to America six times to preach. He preached with D. L. Moody and Ira Sankey. One of his favorite texts was John 3:16.
