In 1957, George Verwer and two friends took a mission trip to Mexico. What began with three men who deeply desired to share God’s love with those around the world who did not know it multiplied into a global movement of believers with the same passion.
Today, over 4,900 people from 118 nationalities serve with OM in more than 120 countries. We are a mix of traditional workers, marketplace professionals, artists, pastors, teachers and more.
God has used us to take the gospel around the globe, and we won’t stop now. There are an estimated 3 billion people who still do not know God’s love, so we will continue to motivate Jesus followers to go to places with few or no churches. As George Verwer himself said: “We will press forward until every creature has heard the gospel…the world is our goal!”
OM is committed to seeing a community of Jesus followers within reach of every person in the world
39% of the world’s 7.7 billion people have never heard the gospel or experienced Christ’s love through the life of a believer—this number increases by around 60,000 each day.
No one is sharing the life and teachings of Jesus.
…Like in Afghanistan, where the average person will hear the gospel once every 30.5 years
No local community of Jesus followers has formed.
… Like in Japan, where there are over 1.700 towns and villages without an evangelical church.
Culture, language and other barriers separate people from local Jesus Followers.
… Like amongst the 1 Million Syrian refugees in Europe.
“Literal adherence to the principles laid down by Jesus Christ would , without a doubt, result in world-wide revolution. A revolution motivated by love; a revolution executed by love; and a revolution culminating in love”
