Rev. Joseph Bellamy (1719-1790), a native of Connecticut, graduated at Yale in 1735. Two years later he began to preach at age 18, and in 1740 was ordained pastor of a church in Bethlehem, Conn. In the great revival which soon spread over New England we was very active and widely useful. His evangelistic preaching in New England is noted as one of the significant ministries during the "Great Awakening." In his later years he was a faithful teacher of young men as well as a successful pastor; many of the most prominent New England divines of the late 1700’s & early 1800’s were his pupils.

"By 1742 Bellamy was feeling such concern for the welfare of the Kingdom of God that he engaged in itinerant labors throughout Connecticut and other parts of New England. This he continued to do for part of each year during the course of the revival. While his expectation of the ushering in of the millennial age thru the revival was not realized, his own personal labors were powerfully used by God. In due time he returned to a more settled ministry but his place as a man of revival was by this time firmly established." - Roberts, Whitefield in Print, p. 100.
