In today's Vandercast, William Vanderbloemen, founder and CEO of Vanderbloemen Search Group, talks with Derek Harden, lead pastor at Christ Fellowship in Kingsport, Tennessee. A former college football player at The Ohio State University, Derek felt a call to share the transforming power of Jesus with others, which led him to leave the corporate world to pursue a job in ministry. He and William talk about the importance of establishing trust when transitioning into a position held by a long-tenured leader.
