“What a blessing you guys are with your encouragement and faithfulness in what God has called you! What a blessing it is to have a support organisation that consistently focuses on hearing from God and putting Him first. We were really encouraged by the meeting last Friday. I am pumped about what God is going to open up in my business this year. Thanks for your support and obedience to enable these things to eventuate. I can’t wait to see what God does in 2017!”

“By the blessing and influence of the upright, and God’s favour because of them, the city is exalted.” Proverbs 11:11
We believe there is no one more strategically positioned in the community, city or nation than Christians operating in the marketplace.
Our goal at Business Edge is to support, encourage and empower business owners and leaders to excel and prosper in their calling and live out their faith in the marketplace setting, becoming leaders in their industry, professions and governance.
We achieve this by linking together business people, in supportive relationships, and encouraging them in their daily walk with God. We believe that business, facilitation, spiritual purpose and direction makes for great business decisions and successful, best business practice, while producing a quadruple bottom line measured by Profit, People, Planet and Purpose.
Business Pastors provide relational support and encouragement for you along the way. They won’t replace your church pastors, but they do understand business, the stresses, passion, joy and pain that comes with the journey and are available Monday-Friday to bring support, advice, encouragement and God connection.
Business Edge actively supports members through: Personal, Pastoral and Mentoring care for you and your business (in person, skype, phone, email etc); Structured daily and monthly prayer support; Business Edge After 5 networking events; Professional Development seminars and workshops; Members only Mobile Directory Phone App; Conferences, Social and Regional Events

“ The earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer of a righteous person makes tremendous power available dynamic in its working” James 5:16 (amp)
This scripture is the premise for the importance of prayer to Business Edge – real, specific, targeted prayer is the pillar and foundation of power behind Business Edge members.
Genuine prayer support is our point of difference helping us achieve ‘the Spirit of good business.’
One of our key values is that Business Edge Members pray daily for each other, or at least as often as possible. How do we achieve this? via the Business Edge Prayer System
What others are saying...
“It’s been a long hard road but you’ve faithfully stood with us and prayed and prayed and prayed and now we have some options where we never had any before!! God is good, God is faithful and you have been very much the encouragers on the way. So thanks for all that!”
“Thanks for this amazing word – ready appreciated your ongoing spiritual wisdom, insight and friendship.”
“Great to hear from you both on the day with your words of prayer & encouragement…bang on… We felt encouraged & very upheld on the day as we met with our Accountant that day & since as we look at a new way of ‘doing’ farming. Blessings.”
“Life as a business person of faith is often a very lonely journey so to know that there are hundreds of people praying for me on my day (and often in between), is encouraging to the max.”
Thank you for this Coralie, and for you continuous support and prayer ? Its so lovely to know that people are actively praying for you.”
“I so look forward to my prayer day, I always feel empowered and amazing things happen. It is great to know I am not alone.”
“Thankfully the complaint against me has been dropped in full! I’m glad it’s all behind me. Great to have support of good people at these times of distraction. God continually showing me favour and providing approvals for my clients business ventures.”
“Prayer is fantastic! God has been so wonderful- he has faithfully provided our daily needs and we are meeting our bills as they arise – in this past week two work opportunities has arisen for both of us. We are excited with anticipation of what more amazing things God will do next!”
“This is my blessed week! Thank you for this encouragement, and for all your thoughtful prayers. Blessings to you and all you love for a divine Christmas.”
“We give thanks in all things, and for all things. Business Edge is a major, thanks Saints. Thanks especially for Coralie and Clarkie for your support and encouragement. Bless you guys. Interesting to reflect on Jesus words Give and it shall be given unto you. Is he saying that the rich shall get richer, not only spiritually but also materially? Contrary to much church and political stance these days. I think He is.”
