Charles Simeon (1759-1836) - Simeon was educated at Eton College and King's College, Cambridge. In 1782 he became fellow of King's College, and took orders, receiving the living of Holy Trinity Church, Cambridge, in the following year. 

Unlike many ministers of the day Simeon was active in pastoral visitation. During his early years Simeon called on parishioners in their homes. One day he divided his parish into sections and charged his lay leaders with the oversight of each division. This is arguably the beginning of what some refer to now as "home groups." 
In 1792 he read An Essay on the Composition of a Sermon by the French Reformed minister Jean Claude. Simeon found that their principles were identical and used the essay as the basis for his lectures on sermon composition. Claude’s essay also inspired Simeon to make clear his own theological position, the result being Horae Homileticae, his chief work.
