Persuaded to stay in Geneva by Guillaume Farel


Farel was a fellow French reformer and would become a life-long friend of Calvin. Calvin’s initial role is unknown, but he began giving lectures on Scripture. It is believed Calvin started to preach in 1537. In the same year, he (along with Farel) presented the ‘Articles on the Organisation of the Church and its Worship at Geneva’ to the city council.
