Theology matters.

Jennifer at St. Francis Springs

Our staff has more seminary and theological experience than any other search firm with 200+ collective years of Christian leadership.

Malcolm Gladwell says it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert. With over 1,000 staffing assignments completed, we have completed more searches than anyone else in the staffing industry serving Christian organizations.

We’ve conducted every type of staff transition under the sun and have navigated Christian leadership teams through difficult circumstances including devastating unexpected departures of team members including death and moral failure.

The Vanderbloemen Team has over 200 years of combined experience in Christian leadership, the church, and parachurch world. Eleven of our team members have advanced degrees in theology, divinity, or leadership. Because of our team's vast experience, our reach and connections to candidates are intentionally intertwined in our search and candidate sourcing process.

Additionally, we have 30+ Strategic Partners who are an extension of our team around the globe in complementary services like capital campaigns, stewardship, organizational structure, Christian higher education, and more who are available to advise us and network with us on searches.
