About Us

We live in a very complex era of uncertainty with viruses, political instability, climate change, wars and rumours of wars triggering market volatility and supply chain disruptions. The landscape of business is changing rapidly and traditional methods of doing business are failing. We help our clients navigate these complex but also exciting times. We help them press into heaven for supernatural blueprints and strategies specific to their lives and businesses.
We also offer continued support to our clients and play an active role throughout the lifecycle of their lives and businesses.

LightUp is a global marketplace ministry (mentors, life coaches, trainers and marketplace prophets) helping people (business leaders, entrepreneurs, employees and students) discover their true Godly identity and equip them to strategically navigate complex life and business environments.

We not only mentor and coach established businesses, but also believe that every person is created for greatness and has a specific mandate on earth. We help anyone from students feeling stuck to CEOs needing solutions to large complex problems. We press into heaven for supernatural breakthroughs and help people reach their ultimate purpose.

No problem is too complex for God and He can give guidance on growth and direction to anyone from students, employees, and startups to well-established businesses.

We are entrepreneurial and business-focused and believe that most people carry a seed for business which can flourish in the right environment with the right support and development. We help our clients find and develop that seed.

We provide continued support, leadership and further specialized skills development through our technology partner, CloudTrain Academy an online training Academy focussing on basic, intermediate and advanced skills for all areas of business and corporate environments.


  • CloudTrain Academy sows financially into LightUp as part of their social heart for upliftment.
  • CloudTrain Academy is LightUps technology partner and supports LightUp with technology and expertise.
  • LightUp provides scholarships to disadvantaged students for further specialist skills development through CloudTrain Academy.


To be a dynamic Marketplace Ministry helping people in the marketplace discover their true Godly identity and purpose through prophetic insight and to equip them for their Godly mandated lives and careers/businesses.
