Our Experience with Church Leadership and Staffing
At Group ONE39, we have a vast amount of experience in the church world. Chris Spradlin and Keath Storm, the founders of Group ONE39, have been involved in ministry since they were teenagers. Chris was involved in the hiring and selection process with the largest church in America, Life Church. While at Life Church, Chris received leadership development from one of the best communicators of our time, Craig Groeschel. During his time overseeing a campus as Pastor and Teaching Pastor, the church grew from 5,000 to 50,000 in attendance which influenced opportunities for Chris to speak to crowds of 100 to 50,000 people.
Keath has been instrumental in helping organizations identify and acquire top talent in key leadership roles. After years of placing top candidates in corporate America, Keath has turned toward his main passion of helping churches and ministries obtain top talent in key roles.
We work with churches of all sizes and denominations. Our combined team experience makes Group ONE39 an invaluable asset to churches nationwide in finding and hiring the ONE candidate for their churches and communities.
