David Sands

David Sands

David Sands (1745-1816) was an active and influential minister in the Society of Friends at a time when the minds of many Friends (particularly in Ireland) had been led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. Originally from Long Island, Sands labored extensively throughout New England, and also made a lengthy trip to Europe where he preached the gospel in England, Ireland, France, Germany, and several other parts of the continent. His life was fraught with many deep conflicts, difficulties, and opposition, but he remained a faithful pillar in the church, and an example of humility and self-denial, in the midst of a much deteriorated Society.

In 1796, William Savery and David Sands travelled together in the work of the ministry through Holland, Germany, France, and several other parts of Europe.
