Gateway to Africa and the World
YWAM Worcester is a ministry of YWAM International, a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), we unite in a common purpose “To Know God and To Make Him Known“.
YWAM Worcester’s Mission Statement
YWAM Worcester is an international Christian Community, called to develop and train people from all backgrounds, releasing them to passionately represent Christ across Africa and the world.
Why we do what we do
We offer a wide range of training programs accredited with the University of the Nations International, aiming to equip individuals with skills, knowledge, character and experience in order for them to succeed in life and to be empowered to represent Christ in all spheres of society.
We are serving the local community with a variety of transformational ministries aimed to empower children, youth, men/women and families. We are regularly reaching 3000+ children in Worcester through our involvement with schools and different aftercare programs, running our own pre- and primary school on campus. We are involved in feeding schemes, prison ministry, church planting, mentoring groups, counselling, family ministry and much more.
What do we believe
We believe in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit who gives freedom to God’s people. We are creating an environment where people can heal while experiencing this freedom and are encouraged to strive for both, the gifts and the fruit of the Spirit in order to be transformed and to bring transformation everywhere they go.
We do have constantly 30+ different Nations represented at YWAM Worcester, which of course creates an amazing international atmosphere.
We offer an environment where artists can express God’s heart creatively and grow in skill, character and experience.
We understand the needs of families and we are committed to making room for them. We do run our own Christian pre and primary school on campus.
YWAM Worcester’s openness to the Holy Spirit creates an environment where there is freedom instead of control. We are regularly seeing people healed, emotionally and physically, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
