Few Things You Need To Know About Peter Maiden

Peter was born in Cumbria in 1948 to Godly parents, Reg and Amy. On leaving school he went in to a management training programme with a local Carlisle company but this did not last long. Such was the demand for his preaching and teaching he effectively had two jobs. The call into full-time Christian ministry was unmistakable. He left secular employment in order to fulfil all the invitations he received.

It was as a result of speaking at youth gatherings and at the funeral service for Keith Beckwith, a young Cumbrian full-time worker with Operation Mobilisation, he met George Verwer, the founder of OM. George, a very able identifier of talent, pursued Peter until he agreed to become the leader of the growing ministry in the UK, a position that Peter held with great distinction for a period of 10 years.
