We decided to use Kingdom Candidates in our search for a Lead Pastor, and our experience was tremendous! The website interface was extremely user friendly, and the profiles captured all the pertinent information that we were looking for. The team at Kingdom Candidates was great to work with and quickly responsive to any questions or comments that we had. We plan to use Kingdom Candidates for any future hiring needs at our church, and would recommend it to anyone looking for such a tool.
The founder is a visionary leader with an unprecedented ability to find and draw out the best in people and organizations! A top-tier communicator, Jared [Little's] ability to grab attention while informing and inspiring is exceptional. As a coach & consultant, Jared and his team at Kingdom Candidates are very knowledgable and highly-skilled, so much so that I truly believe they are capable of leading any individual and/or organization. Having utilized Kingdom Candidates to help our church with a staff search as well as to provide preaching at our Sunday services and leadership to my staff and elders at our annual Vision Summit, I HIGHLY recommend Jared Little and Kingdom Candidates to any individual, church or organization.

The key thing that Kingdom Candidates offered us was the personal touch of being able to connect to someone at any point in the process. They were extremely helpful with suggestions that helped us find the perfect fit for our position. Our search team also enjoyed the ability to digitally categorize candidates and compare one candidate with another via the internet without dealing with a lot of paperwork. Kingdom Candidates was a “win” for our church.

Generations Teaching Pastor
We were served in such an incredible way by Kingdom Candidates. We couldn't have just anyone. We had to hire the person with the right heart, the right spirit, and the right skill-set. Your company allowed the candidate to clearly see who we were and we were able to clearly see who they were. The process produced the perfect fit for the church and the candidate. We highly recommend Kingdom Candidates.
Working with Kingdom Candidates from the beginning really helped us focus in on what we desired for the position. The website layout helped our search committee organize the top candidates we wanted to reach out to and made sifting through resumes more enjoyable. The best aspect for us by far was the questionnaires. The consultative church questionnaire forced our hiring committee to think through the "best fit" for our church and how to be deliberate in the hiring process. The candidate questionnaires also gave us tremendous insight into how applicants lined up with our culture and philosophy of ministry. Reading through the candidate questionnaires saved us HOURS of interviews and a lot of heart ache.
We are KC believers for two main reasons. First, the diversity and quality of candidate to which we were able to gain access through their network was something we had never experienced through other job sites or search firms. Second, Jared Little (owner & founder) keeps it 100. The level of candidness and honesty we experienced throughout the process was exactly what we needed to make the right decision for our church.
