George Verwer is the founder of OM (formerly Operation Mobilization), a Christian mission organisation.
Verwer was a student at Ramsey High School in New Jersey when a housewife, Dorothea Clapp, who had been praying for the students, sent him a copy of the Gospel of John. Soon after he attended a meeting in New York where Billy Graham was the speaker, and Verwer committed his life to Christ.
During the summer school break of 1957, Verwer and two fellow students went to Mexico to distribute copies of the Gospel of John. The following year he started studies at Moody Bible Institute, graduating from there in 1960.

In 1963 Operation Mobilization extended its activities into the Middle East, and the following year into India.
