Prophetic Networking Group Fulfills Christian Professionals’ Need for Spirit-Led Mentoring

by | Mar 13, 2019 | Blogs, The Strang Report

There seems to be no end to the business books—even Christian ones—flooding the market. But how many marketplace Christians can actually connect with the authors of those books to get specific insight and mentorship? David Yarnes says that’s the exact need Kingdom Business Association (KBA) fills. The networking group offers practical and spiritual support for Christian business professionals from around the world. And Yarnes, co-founder of KBA, tells me in an exclusive interview that the network has grown increasingly prophetic. (Click here or scroll down to the end of this article to listen to my interview with Yarnes.)

“[KBA has] evolved a little bit, but now we’re highly prophetic,” Yarnes tells me. “We really build around relationship in that … we’re really trying to connect people. And we’ve seen marketplace ministry and extraordinary things happen through that network. It’s amazing.”

Being a prophetic business networking group allows Spirit-filled professionals—many of whom are entrepreneurs at KBA—to gain unique insight into God’s heart for their businesses.

“We’re uniquely prophetic, and we’ve seen people’s lives changed by a prophetic word,” Yarnes says. “So we encourage that, we talk to people about it, and we do training on it.”

While KBA ministers to a wide range of Christians in different professions, including art and media, the group mostly consists of business professionals who want make an impact for Jesus in the marketplace.

“[Businesspeople] need that kind of prophetic, charismatic relationship with each other,” Yarnes explains. “A lot of these guys are in places where there’s no one else around like them.”

Yarnes co-founded the association 10 years ago. At that time, he was pastoring while a number of his businesses were growing. But Yarnes noticed that there wasn’t a lot of material available to teach Christians how to minister in the marketplace.

“There was this huge sense of the secular-sacred divide—’If you want to minister, you have to give up these secular pursuits,'” he says. “And nothing could be further from the truth.”

So with the help of about 10 people, KBA began to offer support to Christians in the marketplace, and little by little the networking group began to grow.

“It was getting together and encouraging each other that ‘Your business is your front line,'” Yarnes says. “‘Whatever you’re doing, you’re doing unto the kingdom.’ And it really birthed out of that.”

KBA eventually transferred to MorningStar Ministries in Forth Mill, South Carolina, and the two ministries have been working together for 10 years. Since then, KBA has grown to offer more than basic networking. They provide weekly coaching calls featuring top speakers who give insight on a wide variety of subjects. The great thing about those calls is that those listening in can interact with the speaker and get the specific help they need.

KBA also does weekly prayer calls, where callers can share prayer requests and build each other up in the Spirit. KBA members can meet face to face during the association’s annual meeting and their smaller quarterly meetings around the country. The group’s website, kbabiz.com, also offers a variety of free resources that some say have changed their lives.

Because of this, Yarnes says, KBA chapters grow organically, and often members who live near each other get together more regularly for mutual support. This is the heart of KBA’s focus on relationships.

“I hear time and time again that people found their best friends through KBA,” Yarnes says. “And I don’t say that lightly. They really do find commonality because I think all friendship is based on having a lot of things in common, and KBA has really been able to do that.”

If you want to connect with Yarnes or KBA, visit kbabiz.com. Yarnes says that for just under $20 a month, you can become a KBA member and gain access to many in-depth resources in addition to the free videos and recorded calls I mentioned earlier.
