What's the New Leader Hiring conversation all about?

The process for hiring a new leader focuses on:

  • developing a profile
  • identifying and attracting candidates
  • vetting those candidates
  • negotiating an offer
  • and onboarding

All five areas are necessary components to the overall search process. And yet, many search teams lack the tools to navigate each area well.

Of those surveyed, 2% of pastors said they planned to utilize the services of a professional search firm.
