Dan Taylor (1738–1816) was a British General Baptist pastor. Born in Yorkshire, Taylor was a coal miner who joined the Wesleyan Methodists in 1761. However, he came to object to Wesley’s authoritarian leadership and joined the Baptists. Ordained a General Baptist pastor in 1763, he quickly began organizing an independent group of dissenters, and became an important leader, especially among the new generation of General Baptists. Taylor is best remembered for establishing and leading the New Connection of General Baptists, a group of Arminian Baptists who were unhappy with the state of the General Baptists.
