About the Organization:

The Vanderbloemen Search Group helps churches and ministries build great teams by finding their key staff.

Vanderbloemen is a retained executive search firm, serving churches and Christian organizations in all parts of the United States and internationally. Its central office is in the heart of Houston. 

Our clients come from over 50 different denominations or types of churches, as well as Christian non-profits and relief organizations. The firm represents churches ranging in attendance from 70 to over 70,000. Churches such as Life.Church, Willow Creek, Central Christian Church, Harvest Bible Chapel, Cross Church, and Peachtree Presbyterian are representative of those who choose to retain Vanderbloemen to help find key staff.

While Vanderbloemen can staff any position at any size church, the bulk of the firm’s work is made up of searches for senior level staff. Searches involving Senior Pastor succession are an area of particular expertise. 

In addition to search work, the firm also provides services in staff consulting, succession planning, and compensation analysis.

Growth at Vanderbloemen has been both rapid and sustained. Future growth is anticipated and planned.
