Mote spent his ear­ly ca­reer in the cab­i­net­ry bus­i­ness. One strong in­flu­ence in his life was John Hy­att, who preached at Tot­ten­ham Court Road Cha­pel, one the cha­pels run by La­dy Hunt­ing­don. Mote event­u­al­ly be­came a Bap­tist pas­tor and served 26 years at Hor­sham, Sus­sex. He was so well loved that his con­gre­ga­tion of­fered him ti­tle to the church build­ing, but he said:

I do not want the cha­pel, I on­ly want the pul­pit; and when I cease to preach Christ, then turn me out of that.
