What are people saying about Search?

  • "William Vanderbloemen has successfully assisted countless churches in the search for the best leaders for their congregations. I commend Search to any church, in any denomination, that aspires to lead a thorough, efficient process for transition."

    -Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources,
    best-selling author of I Am a Church Member

  • "Christ Church had never been through a Senior Pastor search process, and after thirty-one years of ministry under a founding rector, we needed their help. William and his team entered the Anglican tribe with courage and confidence armed only with a list of contacts. They learned our polity and found us a candidate who is pitch perfect for our position. Mission accomplished!"

    -Rev. David Roseberry, Rector, Christ Church

  • "Due to finances, we had limited resources to operate a lengthy Senior Pastor search on our own. This hire could make or break the church’s future, and we didn’t want to risk it with our little hiring experience. God truly used Vanderbloemen to assemble an amazing staff. Three of our four full-time staff were found through Vanderbloemen.

    -Andy Hahn, Executive Pastor, Far Hills Community Church

  • "We had positioned ourselves to impact downtown Jackson, we just needed a leader. The success came when the pastor search committee partnered with Vanderbloemen. It worked better than we ever dreamed it would.

    -Bob Gladney, Executive Pastor, First Baptist Jackson

 
Every church faces leadership changes. Leadership transitions often negatively affect the life of the church. Ministries are halted, church members leave, and giving slows down. The momentum the church was building is lost.
 
Imagine instead if the church had a process already in place. What if they knew how to form a search committee and begin the search process for the person God was calling to lead their church?
 
There is no magic formula for planning a seamless pastor search, but I’ve written this handbook to help make the process easier for churches by providing pastor search committees, church leaders, and pastors a guide to planning for the overwhelming pastor search process.
 
Search will help your church successfully navigate each stage in finding your next pastor by providing clear steps for forming, guiding, and successfully executing the pastoral search process.
