Serving with Purpose: Prioritizing People Over Profit

In our journey of Kingdom building, one essential aspect is serving others with love and compassion, reflecting the character of Jesus in all areas of our lives. Today, we have the privilege of hearing from Dr. Pat Kennedy, a devoted Christian and owner of Kennedy’s Spine and Sport. Dr. Pat shares his inspiring mission and vision for his practice, emphasizing the integration of faith and healing. Join us as we explore his heartfelt approach and discover how we can prioritize people over profits in our own lives. 

Activating Faith at Work

Jeff Strahan, founder of Fitness Image Results, is an exemplary Christian business owner who strives to honor God in his profession as a personal trainer. His faith has not only helped him maintain his personal values but also influenced the way he runs his business. At Ignite Purpose, we had the privilege of interviewing Jeff about how he activates his faith in his profession, and we were inspired by his story.


Most business owners understand the concept of SMART Goals.  Just in case you don’t, standard SMART Goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-bound. While this model is well known, it lacks the faith-based component. Here’s a faith-based SMART Goal process that allows you to put the focus back on God.


Once you get a better understanding of who you personally serve, it’s time to better understand the needs of your customers and even your team. We just need to take more time to define the audience we want to serve and be more strategic about serving them with excellence.  We also need to focus on serving our team with the same amount of energy.  Corporate teams that feel loved and served, in turn, serve our clients with a higher level of commitment.  This all sounds so obvious I know, but still, I see SO many organizations that don’t take the time to do this.  A lot of assumptions are made and we miss the opportunities to meet those we influence where they are.
