Join us on a pioneering adventure. YWAM Worcester is launching the first YWAM DTS hosted in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.

As we look out over the hills and plains of the Green-Kalahari, we seek to allow God to hone our relationships with Him, others and ourselves and to sharpen our skills as citizens of His Kingdom.

Slypsteen / Whetstone:

“In a sense, a whetstone represents a catalyst for growth, improvement and refinement, helping to hone and sharpen one’s talents and abilities, much like a physical whetstone sharpens a blade.”

DTS started a journey in me, to be intentional with people around me and explore the bottomless love of God. To know God more clears my identity and creates strong friendships.
