    YWAM (Youth With a Mission) MUIZENBERG & WORCHESTER
    Objective: To put youth into mission. Training is a key focus. YWAM Worcester has students from many different countries and cultures.

    Mission Engagement Opportunities

    • Local (Worcester): examples—outreach to farm kids, after-school care in a township
    • Neighbouring countries
    • Overseas countries


    • Serving with YWAM begins with Discipleship Training School (DTS):
    • DTS: three months of lecture, two months of outreach
    • The DTS course is run four times in the year. Each offering has a different ministry focus. Although the core of the course is the same, students can select which offering they want to take, depending on their desired ministry focus: 1) Nation Builders (focus on discipling nations), offered every January.  2) Troubadour (focus on the performing arts), offered every April.  3) Awakening (focus on the Holy Spirit and his giftings), offered every July.  4) Radical (focus discipleship and evangelism), offered every September.

    OM (Operation Mobilisation)

    • Requirements and training is very much like that of YWAM
