School of Word and Spirit – SWS
School of Word and Spirit - SWS
The SWS will help you develop a life that is ROOTED from the place of intimacy, as you learn how to draw from the Bible and the life of the Spirit. Be transformed through the renewing of your mind as you receive lectures from respected YWAM Bible teachers and one on one coaching and mentoring.
“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
The purpose of this course is to strengthen the student’s relationship with Father God through the Holy Spirit and the Word (Jesus). We will achieve this through modelling reliance on the Holy Spirit in learning how to rightly handle God’s written revelation, the Bible.
The student will develop an overall understanding of the message of the Bible and learn how to develop skills that will serve a lifetime of Bible reading, memorization, meditation and study. A reverence for God’s revelation and a hunger to understand and apply the Scriptures through study, worship, prayer and obedience will result in the transformation of beliefs, values and behaviours.
The essence of this school is about the inseparable relationship of the Word and the Spirit in the process of growing into maturity.
Go deeper in your relationship with Father God through a six week encounter with the Word and the Spirit!

Come join us at YWAM Muizenberg, in the beautiful city of Cape Town. Only a few minutes walk from Muizenberg beach and a surfer’s paradise. We are also near the local township communities. We regularly engage with God’s heart for this incredible community and the surrounding communities.
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
