George Verwer, founder of Operation Mobilisation (OM), addressed CMF staff in March. Now aged 79 George is still a highly inspirational mission speaker. He recounted how he embraced 'messiology', working in what 'humanly-speaking are messy situations' and how OM gradually widened its focus from evangelism-only to a blend of proclamation, social action and church planting. The outcome he says has been a much greater harvest of people finding faith in Christ through the work of OM than ever imagined. His calling card reels off a whole series of social and spiritual problems and confidently declares 'Christ is the answer.'
