Close by, May 18, 1779, "at Roger Thompson's, near the Broken-Back Church," began the "Regular" Methodist Conference composed of some of the most devoted and successful Methodist preachers, a large majority of the whole. Assent was given to the insistent demand for the holy sacraments from those through whom thousands had been converted. A presbytery was appointed, preachers were ordained. After one year, for the sake of peace, they were desisted and appealed to Wesley. Led by the Holy Spirit, he acted; and in 1784, "The Methodist Episcopal Church in America" began its world-wide work.

"What preachers do approve this step?" "Isham Tatum, Charles Hopkins, Nelson Reed, Reuben Ellis, Philip Gatch, Thomas Morris, James Morris, James Foster, John Major, Andrew Yeargin, Henry Willis, Francis Poythress, John Sagman, Leroy Cole, Carter Cole, Carter Cole, James O'Kelly, William Moore, Samuel Roe."
