John Oliver was accepted by the 1819 Conference on the recommendation of John Davies, Superintendent minister of the Nottingham circuit. He was described as a single man, possessed of good health, a strong constitution, deep piety and good ability. Oliver expressed himself as willing to be sent to any part of the world and from 1820 to 1822 he was stationed in Grand Bank, Newfoundland. He returned to England and served circuits in England and Wales. Oliver disappeared from the list of ministers between 1827 and 1833.
