We are called to train, equip, mobilize and release leaders to disciple the nations. We have established a training center with the following emphasizes:
Prayer and Intercession
We desire to impact the communities and youth around us with Kingdom values and see them living out God's destiny for their lives. We partner with the local Church to see the Great Commission fulfilled.
The YWAM base is located in the Pellsrus township just at the edge of the town centre in Jeffrey's Bay. The YWAM base shares a plot of land with a local church which shares YWAM’s aims to reach the community for Christ. From humble beginnings the property is being transformed to glorify God and serve the needs of our staff and students more fully each year.
We have acquired an additional building near the base for accommodation - Ikaya Lesizwe (House of the Nations).
Our Jeffrey's Bay base is characterized by the following, which have come to be called our 'recipe', or the ingredients that make up our family atmosphere:
Relationships are the motivation for all our activities
We value all the giftings of the individual and invite the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives - Individuals, family and community are more important than programs or systems
Generosity characterizes our attitudes and lifestyle. We seek to break the spirit of poverty and uplift our community through generosity.
We allow the anointing of the individual to supercede the position they are in, and each member submits to the anointing of the other, as we are all part of the winning team. In everything we do, mentoring others is a consideration. We call others to follow us as we follow Christ, "each one, teach one." - Mentoring others is an important part of everything we do. Everyone is able to teach someone else what they have learned.
We have a heart for hospitality, believing in and celebrating the dignity and value of all individuals made in God's image.
Prayer is the foundation of all our relationships, plans and ministry. We believe in hearing God's voice and following His direction. We cultivate a lifestyle of worship and praise to God, dancing with all our strength to the rhythm of the African drum.
We invite you to come visit Jeffrey's Bay. To share in the heritage and be part of the legacy we are building.
