The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Build!’. Our keynote speaker is George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilisation. Our Bible studies will be led by Matt Armstrong, Les Wheeldon and Larry Hill will also be with us.
As we meet at Quinta Christian Conference Centre, Oswestry, for the first time, we will be looking to the future as we study the book of Nehemiah and consider our subject ‘Build!’. We look forward to a time of continued blessing!
George Verwer is the Founder and former International Director of Operation Mobilisation, which is a ministry of evangelism, discipleship training and church planting. George led Operation Mobilisation for over 40 years before stepping down in August 2003. George has a burning concern for vital, propagating and revolutionary Christianity in his own life and in those he meets.
George shares the Christian revolution of love and balance right around the world. He starts at home emphasizing the need to worship God, live in fellowship with one another by walking in the light, and live a disciplined life of victory as forgiven, repentant, Cross-centered Christians.
George and his wife, Drena, are now involved in Special Projects Ministries (still part of OM) full-time. They have three adult children, five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. They make their home in England.
Married with two boys, Matt now lives in Leeds after nearly 12 years serving in Malawi where he taught in Bible Schools, preached and pastored churches.
Now he works in the University of Leeds seeking to live his life vocationally, both in his work and also in local church opportunities to preach and teach the Bible
His main hobby is endurance running – a very suitable reminder of the need to continue and endure in the Christian life!
