Peter Maiden

Director of Operation Mobilisation (OM) and Elder of Hebron Evangelical Church in Carlisle and Chairman of the Keswick Convention.

 

To get anywhere in any of the above positions you have to be the real thing in evangelical circles, which means basing ones life on Biblical principles and prayer and placing God central in all things. This is probably why Peter looks and acts in such an honest and modest manner whilst  upholding high profile positions that many younger evangelicals will aspire to, to serve Jesus.  

 

Operation Mobilisation’s location in Carlisle was probably because it was Peter’s home town and OM being in Carlisle may have contributed to Send The Light (STL) basing its distribution warehouse in the city. STL is now one of the city’s biggest employers. STL and OM were once the same organisation.

 

Peter and Win Maiden were born in Carlisle, in the north of England, not far from Keswick and the Cumbrian Lake District.

They were raised in evangelical churches — Peter the Brethren and Win the Nazarene. Peter and Win met as teenagers and were married in 1971.

In the 1970’s Peter’s Bible teaching ministry and the Maiden family grew with the birth of Becky, Tim, and Dan.

Peter and Win joined OM in 1974, taking on the leadership of OM UK. In 1985, George Verwer invited Peter to join him as his Associate International Coordinator.

What interests outside of OM does Peter have?

Complementing his OM role, Peter serves as an elder in his local church, is Co-chairman of the International Christian College in Glasgow, and Chairman of the Keswick Convention. Along with this he keeps busy with an intensive Bible teaching ministry throughout Britain and in many other countries of the world. Peter is a voracious reader. He has also been an avid long-distance runner until recent knee damage limited him. He often runs in the ‘fells’ (hills) of the Lake District.

Win delights in her three grandchildren and is known for her ministry of hospitality and service. She gravitates to Keswick and always enjoys a walk with Peter in the Borrowdale Valley, of course with a stop at their favourite coffee shop!
