(067) God Conversations in Business – the man behind the Coffee, Peter Irvine

What does hearing the voice of the Spirit look like in the business world? How do you balance the tension between working with the natural and and the supernatural in starting and building a business?

On this episode of the podcast, we talk to someone who knows the answers to these questions… Meet the man behind the coffee! Peter Irvine cofounded the Gloria Jeans Coffee franchise in 1996. By the time the company was sold in 2014, there were over 400 Gloria Jean’s stores across Australia and over 800 coffee houses in 39 countries worldwide!

Today, Peter is currently the CEO of Kingdom Momentum LTD and has more than 50 years of experience in business at a high profile management level. He is passionate about providing tools, encouragement, advice and expertise to businesspeople both inside and outside the church.

On the show, we talk about:

  • Peter’s business journey and some highlights of his work co-founding Gloria Jeans’ coffee.
  • The Holy Spirit as the Great Problem Solver. Peter shares a time when God spoke to him from a passage in the Bible (Isaiah 48:6,7) about his ability to give us creative and innovative ideas for business.
  • The ultimate purpose of business to be a blessing to others. As Peter says, “It’s not about us.” Prosperity has a purpose!
  • The importance of patience and clear communication.
  • Success comes not so much by financial growth, but by our own growth and development.
  • The dynamic of God-connections and how to watch out for them. 
  • How to partner with the Holy Spirit – allowing for the supernatural input of God as well as our own natural input from Proverbs 21:31: The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the Lord.
