John Wilbur Chapman was born in Richmond, Indiana, on June 17, 1859. and Lorinda Chapman prepared him for a life of Christian ministry.

Chapman began his evangelistic work full time in 1893, preaching with D. Moody at the World's Fair and conducting many meetings on his own.
Chapman led several churches prior to his full time evangelistic efforts.
After returning to the active pastorate for a short time, at the end of 1895, Chapman was appointed Corresponding Secretary of the Presbyterian General Assembly's Committee on Evangelism.
He directed the activities of fifty-one evangelists in 470 cities and also found time to write one of his numerous books, . Converse, a wealthy Presbyterian layman, offered to underwrite Chapman's expenses if he would return to full time evangelistic work.
Chapman continued his non-stop evangelistic efforts in both the United States and Europe in 1910, including a very successful Chicago meeting from October 16 to November 27.
However, Chapman's technique of mass evangelism lost much of its popularity.
