James Hudson Taylor was born in Yorkshire, where his father served as a pharmacist and Methodist minister. His parents had dedicated him to Christian service even before his birth. He placed his faith in Jesus Christ at 17 and shortly afterwards committed himself to vocational ministry. The young Hudson determined to serve as a medical missionary to China, and received training in medicine and theology before departing for Shanghai in 1854 with the China Evangelization Society.
