About Us


YWAM Rustenburg

YWAM Rustenburg is a ministry of YWAM INTERNATIONAL devoted to reaching our city and the outlying regions and villages in the Northwest Province of South Africa with the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ. We feel God has given us the incredible privilege as YWAM Missionaries to offer our gifts and talents to the body of Christ in our region and let our lives be the offering. God has called our staff to live a ‘life of missions’ regardless of the form that takes e.g. feeding the poor, skills development and job creation, teaching in a government school or serving as businessmen or women in the community. As a team, we are in deep community with each other and countless members of the Rustenburg community where God has rooted us. If you feel called to serve, disciple, and build over longer periods of time into a specific region or community, then YWAM Rustenburg is what you’re looking for!

The heart of YWAM Rustenburg is evangelism, discipleship and mercy ministry into our region, focusing on the people of our region. In this, we are unique to the ‘typical’ YWAM base in that we do not consistently run YWAM schools for international students or have a facility that houses YWAM students or staff. We love DTS and believe in training programs but we only run these programs as we feel God leading us in each particular season.



Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), our purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known. YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, mercy ministry and evangelism. We are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
