George Verwer

Earlier this month the Lord called George Verwer home to heaven.

As the Founder of Operation Mobilization, George led OM until 2003, then concentrated on special projects, traveling and speaking on global mission at thousands of gatherings worldwide. His authentic lifestyle and zeal for the spread of the gospel have motivated countless individuals and churches into more intentional mission involvement.

In 2017, I sat down with George at Wheaton College where he was the chapel speaker in a series of messages. We talked that day about his life and calling, first to salvation in Christ and secondly his call to travel the world to share the Gospel and invite others to do the same. It’s that 2017 conversation that you will hear on FIRST PERSON this week.

There’s more about George Verwer and his legacy here. How we thank God for him and the faithful servant of God he was while on this earth.

NEXT WEEK:  Dr. Charles Ware
