John Dick was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1764. He was licensed to preach in 1785, and his community immediately noticed the elegance of his sermons and the eloquence of his delivery. He was soon ordained and appointed to a congregation in the village of Slateford. For 15 years he remained in Slateford, next moving to Glasgow to head another church. In 1815 he received his Doctor of Divinity, and in 1820 he was appointed theological professor to the Associate Synod. He was appointed president of the Auxiliary Bible Society of Glasgow in 1832.
