Daily Inspiration: Meet Lloyd Lapore III

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lloyd Lapore III.

Hi Lloyd, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
We started Ignite Life KC in 2017. When I started, we were doing daily inspirational posts exclusively on Facebook, something we called a “Daily Fire Starter.” Since then, we re-branded our content in 2020, changing the name of our daily inspirational posts and bi-weekly videos to “The Daily Igniter.” We also expanded to other social media platforms, like Instagram, Twitch, and YouTube. Ignite Life KC even has our own website now, and on our homepage, we have links to all our social media presence. We also have free tools you can you to impact your community immediately. Our website also features a section called “Our Favorite Things,” which has links to our online merchandise store and features a “People we ♥️” section at the bottom of that page, which highlights a few nonprofits, people, and businesses we love and support right here in Kansas City!

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a smooth road?
It has been a relatively smooth road. We started Ignite Life KC because we just wanted to cut through all the noise of social media, and our goal was to have our first 100 followers by the end of 2017. Not sure if we met that goal in 2017, but in 2022, WE NOW HAVE 500+ FOLLOWERS! We post a daily igniter verse every day, and some of our posts have very few likes, comments, and shares, while other posts, including our videos, reach thousands all over the world! Being a Faith-Based Influencer on Social Media wasn’t something I dreamed of doing at first, but it has been very rewarding nonetheless, and now I can’t see doing anything else in this world!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in inspirational posts and motivational videos on Social Media that lead people to a relationship with Jesus! I am known for posting inspirational, shareable content across all social media platforms and facilitating community online in our private “Ignite Life KC Insiders” Facebook Group, which has nearly 300 members!

I am most proud that our Facebook Group predates the Ignite Life KC Facebook Page that now has 500+ Followers! I started doing digital ministry way back in 2013 through the Facebook Group now known as our “Ignite Life KC Insiders” Facebook Group. When we started the group, we had less than 100 Followers. Currently, our Facebook group has 250+ “Insiders” and we are growing every week!

I am currently focused on launching my “Life To The Fullest podcast,” and if all goes as planned, our FIRST podcast episode will be dropping on August 16th, 2022, so be on the lookout for that. I would say that doing digital ministry for almost a decade sets me apart from others because the world isn’t coming to the church, so we must go to them, where they are, which is online, all the time!

What’s next?
10,000+ followers across multiple social media platforms by 2030, an Ignite Life Podcast Network by 2025, and hopefully will turn this into my “Dream Job Day Job” because it won’t be a job. After all, I love what I am doing and have an army of people around me to help me build the Ignite Life KC brand BEYOND Kansas City. I tell Ignite Life Nation, “we are Igniting Life in Kansas City and beyond!”
