George Verwer to Present His Passion
On the Beauty of Messes
WILLS POINT, Texas – Gospel for Asia (GFA) has announced that international leader and renowned missionary statesman, George Verwer, will speak at a special event on the GFA Wills Point, Texas, campus on Sunday evening, Feb. 11, 2018.
Verwer is the founder of Operation Mobilization (OM), one of the world’s largest ministries of evangelism, discipleship training and church planting. OM has more than 6 thousand people using arts & entertainment, business, church, education, media and social activities to make Christ known around the world. He is the author of numerous books, including Out of the Comfort Zone and Drops from a Leaking Tap.
“George Verwer is one of the most important and influential mission leaders of the last century,” says GFA’s Vice President Daniel Punnose. “Not only is he the founder of OM, which has born hundreds of other mission movements, but he is a man of boundless passionate energy for the Lord and for the body of Christ.”
The event will begin with dinner in the Gospel for Asia (GFA) fellowship hall followed by a challenging message by Verwer about “Mess-i-ology.” Mess-i-ology, a term coined by Verwer, is a study of God’s sovereignty and grace over all situations, even when we make a mess of things. Verwer believes, “History will show that God was doing way more in the midst of our messes than we realized at the time.”
Verwer’s latest book, Mess-i-ology, published by Moody Publishers in 2016, will be available at the event for the first arrivals. Those who still want to receive a copy of the book afterwards will have opportunity to request a copy be mailed to them following the event.
The event is FREE and open to the public, but online tickets are available to reserve your spot ahead of time.
