Our ministries

We believe that God wants to establish his Kingdom here on Earth. We desire to introduce God’s Kingdom into broken communities to see restoration and transformation through a holistic approach. The communities we work within are ravaged by crime, HIV/AIDS, poverty, domestic violence, fatherlessness, addiction, and many other ailments. Our goal is to meet these people through various innovative means that will enable us to bring God’s transformative power into their lives and communities.

What People Say

Testimonials of YWAM Muizenberg


Jenna // Hungary

"I've learned to be flexible and patient and how to love without limits. I also was able to step out boldly in evangelism a lot more."

Linda // South Africa

"It was a focused bubble of learning where we were constantly growing. There was always more to learn and new ways to grow. I've never seen such a change in such a short time as I did watching my fellow students go through lecture phase. People become more confident committing their lives to God and embracing the love that has been calling them their whole lives."

Sinmiloluwa // Nigeria

“Every single week came with its newness + relevance it is a time during which I felt equipped for life as a daughter of heaven. ”

"Lecture phase was amazing! So much information! There was never a lecture that I didn’t take something away from. The most fallible thng that I learned was to learn how to hear God’s voice."

"Wow, wow, wow! It was challenging at times, but a real blessing. My whole view of the character of God was flipped around and I learnt so much. God really does love me and I can be real with Him. He values the individual and He doesn't show favouritism."
