Key Takeaways

We would love the opportunity to work with you and your church in the future.  Here are some ways that we can help!

We'd love to help you during your current search (if you need a little extra hands on deck).

According to where you are in your search, we can help you with marketing, attracting candidates, and sorting resumes... we can even help with filtering candidates through the first four factors that we talked about so much in this series by conducting a series of initial assessments and interviews to determine would might be a healthy, long-term fit for your church.

If fact, that's what we do (all day, every day) for churches all across the country.

If you'd like to start a discussion on how we might be able to enhance your efforts on your current search, let's talk!
Honestly, no one knows who to hire better for your church than you do. But that doesn’t mean that an outside set of eyes and ears cannot help you see things that you may have missed.

Our Final Fit Assessment is a resource that allows you full confidence that the person you are about to hire is actually a healthy long-term solution for your church staff team.

The Final Fit Assessment can be conducted on your final candidate or a short list of the top candidates you are considering. This Final Fit process can usually be completed (with a final report to your team) within two weeks.

We assess your final candidate(s) in four key areas: theological compatibility, church culture/DNA alignment, personality/team coherence, and skills and abilities match. These assessments match the candidate(s) on over 100 key indicators of health and long-term sustainability.

After completing the initial assessments, we complete a series of three short online video interviews with our ministry veterans. These interviews help us identify missing pieces of information that are vital to a healthy church staff member. We know the right questions to ask to identify potential risk factors. Each of these interviews will be conducted by a seasoned professional from our Chemistry team with years of ministry experience.

We reach out to up to five references provided by the candidate. You’ll receive a written report from each reference that includes honest feedback in written form that will allow additional areas of possible concern to surface.

If you have not discussed salary requirements with your candidate(s), we will determine initial salary needs of each candidate and make sure that there is alignment with what you are able to pay for this position. We will also give guidance on whether or not your compensation package is reasonable.

Our preliminary background check will confirm educational degrees and check to be sure that there is no criminal history. (This does not replace the full background check you should run prior to your final hire, but it may surface any initial issues with past conduct or character).

Based on the candidate assessment(s), interviews, and references, we will identify any red or yellow light issues. Identifying these areas of concern allow you to drill down with your candidate(s) and discuss potential areas of misalignment before the hire is made. This is a critical step to avoid a bad hiring decision.

We will provide you with our full findings from the assessments, interviews, reference confirmation, compensation alignment, and red and yellow flag identification in an individualized report. This narrative report gives you our honest assessment of candidate compatibility and long-term potential. This can normally be done within 2 weeks of the initiation of this analysis to avoid unnecessary delays in your potential hire.

Let's grab some coffee over the internet to discuss how this Final Fit Analysis might work for your church.
We can help you implement what you are learning, step-by-step as you go with the assistance of your own Church Coach.

Your dedicated Church Coach will walk with you through each step of the search process, answer any questions you may have, give best practice advice, and help you follow through during your search practice (from start to hire).
