“I feel that Lancaster Search was very helpful at each step of our search. Having not served on a search committee before, it was really beneficial to be able to ask questions and get direction from someone who has many times. Jason is a great resource and was always only a call, text, or email away. I appreciate his dedication to helping churches and Pastors connect; especially with our search as he helped us find our new pastor.”
“Jason Lancaster’s search service was amazing. He gave us candidates faster than we could process them, but that was a good thing! We here at Faith Family Fellowship are so thankful that we found Jason’s service as it was through him that we found and now have our new pastor. Our only regret is that we didn’t start our search with Jason in the first place. We wasted a lot of time trying to accomplish this daunting task ourselves. If your church is looking for a new pastor, Jason Lancaster’s pastoral search service is the Answer.”
“Jason Lancaster knows pastors and he knows churches. That knowledge greatly assisted us in our recent search for an Associate Pastor, a search that was complicated not only by the challenging candidate market post COVID but also by our need for a match with our doctrinal specifics as a church. In spite of these challenges, Jason delivered an impressive number of potential candidates to us, and in the end, we found a great fit. Jason was patient with our process (and our learning moments!) and was always readily available to us throughout. I recommend Jason Lancaster to you as a capable partner in your next search process.”
“Our pastor nominating committee (PNC) was searching for a new head pastor and posted the job description on our church website, our denomination’s job board and two seminary job boards. Few qualified candidates applied. Discouraged, we reached out to Jason Lancaster. He sent us two highly qualified candidates that we wouldn’t have found on our own. He also saved us time by screening candidates who applied to the PNC directly. We are so grateful for his help; we recently extended a call to one of the candidates he sent us.”
Jason was a great resource for our pastor search, through him we had 20 potential candidate profiles to sort through. With his assistance we found an excellent man to be our next pastor. We would highly recommend using Lancaster Search to any church looking to fill a pastor position, we are so glad we found him to help us.”
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.”
