Welcome to Global Business Ministries USA

In 1998 Apostles Les and Daphne Crause left their home country of South Africa to embark on a new era in their lives. They had planned to join a relative in the Caribbean but ended up in Mexico instead.

There, living in Rosarito, Tijuana, just below the United States border, near San Diego they began a ministry on the internet that began to reach around the world.

But naturally, being so close to the USA, most of their early contacts came from the United States. And in time they got to know many folks living in the USA.

During the 17 years that they lived in Mexico, Les and Daphne succeeded in setting up online training schools for the Fivefold Ministry, and many were trained initially for the Prophetic Office. This was then followed by training for the Apostolic Office.

Although the Lord later told Les and Daphne to return to their homeland of South Africa, their contact with Fivefold Ministers in the USA remained a large part of their ministry involvement.

So after establishing a live training center in Johannesburg, South Africa, it was time to expand the work of their ministry, known as Global Business Ministries International, to place some of the leaders they had trained into local ministry centers.

Starting with the neighbouring African country of Botswana, leaders were ordained to go and establish GBM Branches in their country. And the United States soon followed, with branches being established there also.

This website is a covering for all of our ministers in the United States of America. It is a gathering place for all of our branches and you can find a list of these on our branches page.

Distance Training For Fivefold Ministers

GBMI offers distance training from their headquarters in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa. Students who live nearby are free to attend live classes and be trained as Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors and Evangelists.

But this training is not limited to live classes. Everything that is offered live is also available online and is offered as Distance Learning to every country of the world. Our training division is known as Global Business Ministries Academy, and you can find out more at the following web address:

Live Training For Fivefold Ministers

Each leader of our branches in the USA has been through our training, and is offered an opportunity to become a trainer themselves. So we will soon also be setting up live training schools in some of our branches.

We will announce these as they are established, so that you may find a training school near you if you wish to do live training.

If God has called you to the Fivefold Ministry and you wish to be trained, with the possibility of becoming a leader in one of our branches in the future, then we would love to hear from you.

You are welcome to contact us using the Contact link above. And if you Subscribe to our mailing list, you will be kept up to date with all that God is doing in the USA with Global Business Ministries.

Ministry Evaluation Service

We have all the tools needed to both prepare and launch you into the ministry that the Lord has called you to do. And if you are not fully sure of what that calling is, we invite you to complete a Ministry Evaluation from the website that we have set up for this purpose.

There you will be asked to answer 100 questions using multiple choice options. And from your answers we will be able to fairly accurately assess where you are in your calling, and what training you might need.

You can find the evaluation website here:

Before you can do the evaluation you will need to register as a free Gbm Member using the link in the side panel of this page. (If you are on a mobile device such as a phone, this link will be found near the bottom of the page)

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you to find your place in your ministry calling. And if you wish to join us as a partner in the work, the possibility exists for you to become one of the leaders of a Gbm Branch Ministry Center in the future.
