Dingman Company Leading Pastor Search for Evangelical Free Fullerton

April 21, 2017 – Executive recruiting firm The Dingman Company is currently seeking a senior pastor for Evangelical Free Fullerton in California. Search firm president Bruce Dingman is leading the assignment along with vice president Dr. Richard Kidd.

The incoming senior pastor of EvFree Fullerton will provide directional leadership for the church and work with its elders to develop and articulate a core vision, mission, values, and ministry initiatives, which in turn will guide ministry decisions and priorities regarding staffing, programming, and budgeting. The senior pastor will be empowered to manage and direct the staff, resources, and ministries of the church, as agreed-upon by the elder board, to set the long-term direction of the church.

The chosen candidate will most likely have experience as a senior pastor at a large, multi-service or multi-campus church, with weekend worship attendance of more than 1,500 adults and a contemporary or blended style of worship. Alternatively, the candidate could be a teaching pastor in a larger church, or be serving in some other leadership role which has prepared him for this role as senior pastor. Skill sets include being an exceptional biblical communicator. The Dingman Company plans to explore a broad network of individual and organization contacts to suggest potential candidates to the search committee.

Today, EvFree Fullerton is a multi-generational family following Jesus as disciples, connecting with others as a part of spiritual community, and going into the world as missionaries. Together with the church’s vision statement, these three mission initiatives of “follow, connect, go” set the overall direction for both the budget and the organization’s staff.

The Dingman Company’s clients have been both secular and religious, and include private schools, colleges, universities and seminaries, missions organizations, broadcasting/media, church and para-church organizations, relief agencies and development organizations, childcare, social services, and rehabilitation concerns.

The firm is currently leading searches for the Christian Union, International Cooperating Ministries, Open Doors International, Assembles of God Credit Union, and Christian Leadership Alliance. Mr. Dingman is a generalist recruiter with experience working in many industries with one third of his assignments in hospitality or senior living, and over half for non-profit, religious, and educational organizations.
