George Verwer
Biographical Information Sheet

George Verwer is the founder and International Coordinator of Operation Mobilisation which is a ministry of evangelism, discipleship training and church planting. Geroge has a burning concern for vital, propagating and revolutionary Christianity in his own life and in those he meets.

Saved at the age of 16 in a Jack Wyrtzen meeting in which Billy Graham spoke in Madison Square Garden, New York, George returned to his school in northern New Jersey. Within a year about 200 of his classmates had found a relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ.

George had a growing conviction to share the Word of God on foreign soil. He started with distribution of Gospels of John in Mexico along with two friends. This continued with others during summer holidays - beginning in Mexico in 1957.

Attending Maryville College after high school, he transferred to Moody Bible Institute where he met a girl, Drena, who was a fellow student and later became his wife. They were led together in discipling young Christians while concurrently carrying out a rigorous programme of world evangelism.

Today OM reaches across the world through two ships and over 2,000 people working in every continent to make Christ regent in the lives of all they meet. George has raised up dedicated leadership to pursue this task across the world.

George and his wife, Drena, have three adult children. They make their home in England, the international headquarters of OM.

Geroge shares the Christian revolution of love and balance right around the world. He starts at home emphasizing the need to worship God, to live in fellowship with one another by walking in the light, and live a disciplined life of victory as forgiven, repentant, Cross-centered Christians.
