Meet Madeline Madrigal, founder of Power of 3 Services, which advises individuals and businesses on how to walk out their Kingdom purpose in the corporate world. In this interview with Felisha Ellison, Madeline shares tips to get you started.
What led you to start Power of 3 Services?
Madeline: The impetus behind launching Power of 3 Services was obedience to the Lord. He gave me the vision for an advising services company years ago and I began building the foundation (website, operations, etc.), but as my walk with Him became stronger and He stirred confidence in the gifts He gave me, the vision became clearer and He shortly ordered my steps to launch the company.
Is there meaning behind the name of your brand? If so, what is it & how did it come about?
Madeline: I find it beautifully overwhelming how intentional the Lord is with every vision He gives us and this was no different. He revealed the company name to me in a vision as a light bulb with an exponent of three. The Biblical symbolism of three is the Trinity: the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Every skill, talent, and spiritual gift that has manifested in my life is a gift from our gracious Father. Power of 3 Services is just that: services offered to my clients that are powered by the Trinity.
How does Power of 3 Services work? What should a customer expect to experience?
Madeline: Power of 3 Services offers two pillars of services: business advising and individual career advising. In our end-to-end business advising, we partner with our clients during any or all phases along the business cycle such as launch planning, process improvement, margin improvement strategies and modeling, growth strategies and planning, project management, and many more. As individual career advisors, we partner with clients to unpack career frustration, identify spiritual gifts and talents, navigate corporate politics, and advise on how and when to have a conversation regarding raises and interview prep.
Power of 3 Services is passionate about partnering with clients on every aspect of their endeavors and spiritual well-being. If we are launching your business, we will also ensure you are spending quality time with your loved ones and advise on how your Kingdom purpose can either be manifested or flow more efficiently through your business. Similarly, for career advising, in addition to addressing challenges in your career, we work to unpack and uproot bad seeds that may be manifesting themselves in your career and life. Our goal is to cultivate your Kingdom purpose in the corporate world, whether it is just for this season or for the entirety of your career.
What do you enjoy most about leading Power of 3 Services?
Madeline: The most enjoyable - and also humbling - part of my role as founder is witnessing skills or lessons that I perceived to be mistakes in turn have a positive impact on others. Our Father is so good and does not allow any detour or disobedience go to waste. Watching Him use my journey, mistakes, detours- use me - for His glory in advising others in their Kingdom purpose is immensely humbling but I am overflowing with joy.
What is the most challenging part of entrepreneurship? How do you overcome this challenge?
Madeline: So far, the most challenging part has been balancing entrepreneurship with my current job, serving, and family. I wholeheartedly commit to excellence in everything I do as I know it is unto the Lord. (Colossians 3:23-24). This has certainly stretched me in this season.
I overcome this challenge by surrendering my day to Him every morning. I seek His wisdom and guidance for discerning what needs to be done and what can wait. This has required tremendous growth and dying of my flesh, but it has also brought freedom knowing I do not have to carry that yoke; I can trust His guidance and eternal perspective versus my own.
How do you stay motivated on a weekly basis?
Madeline: His sweet grace is a tremendous contributor to weekly motivation. I also meditate on His truth daily (oftentimes more than once a day) and remind myself that it is a privilege to serve and honor the Lord with Power of 3 Services.
Power of 3 Services is more than just a business. 90 percent of the world’s workforce finds work to be a source of frustration; they take their frustration home and that has a negative impact on their families, communities, and the country overall. We help entrepreneurs and individuals walk in Kingdom purpose and find eternal joy and fulfillment in the work they do and services they provide.
Power of 3 Services is more than my personal objective or agenda; it is a vision from God and I do not take it lightly. My motivation is the people waiting on my obedience; my motivation is honoring God with every part of my life, including my business.
What is your go-to Bible verse for inspiration?
Madeline: There are three verses that I keep close to my heart especially as I continue to take leaps of faith and grow in my relationship with the Lord.
1. "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” - Jeremiah 31:3
2. “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” - Numbers 23:19
3. “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” - Hebrews 11:1
These three verses encompass so much of who the Lord has revealed Himself to be: loving, graceful, faithful and trustworthy.
What is your #1 tip for readers who may be searching for their purpose?
Madeline: I advise anyone who is searching for their purpose to seek God and talk to Him. We often overcomplicate it. Just talk to God and read the Word. We are made in His image; when we know Him, we come to know ourselves and He reveals our purpose to us.
Cultivating a God-centered community is also important to learning what Kingdom purpose means, confirming what you are hearing in prayer as well as helping you see what walking in purpose looks like. Power of 3 Services offers individual advising for anyone interested in what Kingdom purpose means and what it looks like to model in your job every single day.

How does one carry a Godly purpose into a secular environment such as the corporate world? Aren’t these two areas mutually exclusive?
Madeline: Unfortunately, the world has led us to believe that the corporate world is secular. As believers we know God is the creator of all things; in Exodus 19:5 the Lord tells Moses “...for all the earth is mine…” thus we cannot accept and operate as though His earth stops at the doors of corporations. As believers in the corporate setting we are responsible to be His light (Matthew 5:13). That can mean using your spiritual gifts of administration, giving, leadership, etc. in your day-to-day job. It also means upholding your witness by maintaining integrity and operating in excellence in all you do since all our work is unto the Lord (Colossians 3:23). As believers in corporate, we often expect our purpose to be a grandiose manifestation of God behind our laptops, but He seeks our obedience with simple acts before He trusts us with more. These simple acts of God’s light include showing up on time, being kind to others when your flesh wants to be passive aggressive via email, showing grace to the new person who is taking longer to learn than you would like, etc.
We carry our Kingdom purpose in the corporate world by dying of our flesh in everything about our jobs; that is how His light shines even in the corporate world.
Are there any last thoughts that you would like to share with Wit + Grace Magazine readers?
Madeline: At Power of 3, we understand that taking on a project or managing your career is not always easy. It is especially not easy when you feel torn between the world and the Word. We advise individuals and companies on managing projects from strategy to implementation in purpose with the Lord’s will.
The mission of Power of 3 Services is to advise and edify individuals and business owners toward alignment with their Kingdom purpose in the corporate world. We wholeheartedly believe you are called to have joy and fulfillment in the corporate world and we are passionate about partnering with you on that discovery.
My team and I are ready to help you develop and manage strategies for not only thriving in the corporate world but also living with eternal purpose and joy. Your success is Kingdom success. Contact us at email@example.com for your initial consultation.
