In 1957 one woman’s prayers were answered when a young student gave his life to the Lord. That young man was George Verwer. George followed God’s call to share the Good News with the world. Hundreds responded and Operation Mobilisation was born.
Beginning with a handful of college students on a mission trip in 1957, to today’s 3,400 workers from over 100 nations in over 115 countries and a ship, OM remains a movement at heart, an ideal, a challenge, an invitation, a celebration, a family more impressed with the greatness of God than the size of the task.
