I have been very pleased with the work of the Vanderbloemen Search Group. Their knowledge and expert advice served us well as we navigated this big change in our ministry.

New Hope Community Church is affiliated with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ Denomination and is located in Bryan, OH. In the last 23 years, Pastor George Kreger has led New Hope from a handful of people in a small facility, to a multi-generational church with a current average weekly attendance just under 700. After over 2 decades of faithful service, the other Elders and Pastor Kreger made the bold and courageous decision to partner with the Vanderbloemen Search group to assist in designing a smooth succession plan as well as assist in identifying the next Lead Pastor. Through the succession consulting and search processes, we were able to design a smooth transition plan for the new leadership of New Hope to step into as well as make the connection between New Hope and their future Lead Pastor Patrick Schwenk.
