After several months of rigorously vetting and interviewing candidates, our pastor search team had not discovered God’s new leader for our church. Demoralized and considering our next steps, we contacted Pastor Jason Lancaster, who breathed new life into our search with encouragement and hope. One month later, with a fresh field of twenty-four candidates, God revealed His chosen one for CrossPointe. Our new pastor and our members are so excited to see how God will work within future ministries, sharing the Gospel in our community and beyond.
As someone who recently helped facilitate a search without his assistance, I can tell you the difference Jason made was extraordinary! He made our process more efficient, he helped us quickly locate several well-qualified candidates and he provided assistance in helping us effectively screen those candidates. I refuse to do another pastor search without his partnership.
Our church here in the Bay Area contacted Jason Lancaster for help in locating qualified candidates for our open Senior Pastor position. We had done our own search for many months but were not able to successfully hire a new pastor. Jason was able to customize candidates that fit our profile and brought several men to us for consideration. We have just hired a man that Jason brought to us and we could not be more thankful for Jason’s help. We highly recommend Jason to any church seeking qualified pastoral candidates.
It has been a huge relief to have Jason Lancaster, Lancaster Search, help facilitate the search for an Associate Pastor. Jason was able to provide us with six potential candidates in a relatively short period of time. It’s been a blessing to me as a Lead Pastor to not be carrying this task.
Our team was hesitant to use one of the larger search firms but were very comfortable with the arrangement we had with Jason. We felt like he was a member of our team and many times kept us positive and moving forward. Jason has a lot of contacts and sources that we did not have and after a couple of initial discussions he was able to zero in on the type of pastor we felt would be a good fit for our church. Jason vetted the candidates initially before sending their names to us and every candidate we spoke to told us that Jason did a good job with the initial contact. Jason was consistent to follow up with us after every meeting to see where we wanted to go next. I would highly recommend Jason to your team, even if you have a good source of potential candidates. His contacts are wider and more varied, and he is able to produce a good number of good quality candidates.
Because of his assistance we were able to uncover the man that God sent to us. We began the process in September and concluded with approval of our pastor the second week of January. He couldn’t have recommended a better candidate to fill our pulpit to continue our ministry at Faith Presbyterian EPC in McDonough, GA.
We highly recommend Jason to any churches who are in this process!
“As a church we are so grateful for Jason’s invaluable assistance. Every potential candidate we interviewed was referred to us through Jason. With his help, we were connected to our new pastor in less than six weeks. Our entire search process only lasted three months. We would recommend his services to every church.”
