We were recently retained to fill a Children’s Pastor search for a growing church in the Dallas area. This church was unique as they were growing and had some very unique qualifications for this position.
Our team screened hundreds of candidates and presented 4-5 who made it through our process. We walked with the Leadership Team of the church as they interviewed each candidate. They got very close to making an offer with one candidate, but as we all prayed and discussed things, we determined he was not the best fit – even though he looked GREAT on paper and came HIGHLY recommended. Shortly thereafter, one of our networking contacts referred us to the candidate they eventually hired. The total search time, from start to finish was less than 4 months and the candidate is doing great. Below is an email sent from the Senior Pastor:
David I wanted to personally let you know how great this hire has been for us. We simply couldn’t afford to have a swing and a miss in this area at this time. And Reid is a home run hire! His work ethic, creativity, ownership and leadership in the children’s ministry is exactly what we needed. Thank you for the diligence that you and your team showed in helping us with this process!
Sr. Pastor – Harvest Church
