How we find the ONE?
How do we help churches and ministries find what they’re looking for?
First, we learn everything we can from our clients about the position they need to fill. In this process, we’re looking at cultural fit, capacity fit, and chemistry fit—also known as the three Cs. Not only does our testing help us determine if the candidate is qualified for the role, but it goes a step further and helps us determine if the candidate can fit into the environment of the organization.
It’s our goal to find the right person for the job, but also to find the ONE who will be an asset to your organization. We want your new team member to assume the DNA of what makes your organization “tick” and make it better than it was before. As we search for candidates to invest in your organization, we’re not just looking for a qualified person, but someone who is passionate and will stand above the rest. We care about the success of your organization that much.
Consider the Launch Meeting to be our “first date.” We get to know your organization, discover what makes it unique, and seek to find the right fit in culture, capacity, and chemistry.
Job Profile Development
This is where we take the knowledge we gained from our “first date” and create what we want this “relationship” to look like. We outline the specifics of the role including culture and town demographics. This helps the candidate know who the organization truly is.
Let the search begin! This happens when the Job Profile is finished. Here’s how it works: Let’s say we have 120 people in our network. Only about 25% will qualify. (That’s 30 for those of you who dislike algebra.) From those 30 people, only 15 will go to the next round. After a couple more “cuts,” only three will actually pass the proprietary testing. You’ll be drawn to two of them, but eventually, you’ll LOVE and choose the ONE.
The moment you’ve been waiting for: meeting the candidate. You’ll learn almost everything about them—who they are, what they value, how they lead, how they’re wired, and how many plaques and awards they have on their “I love me” wall at home. You’ll walk away from this presentation fully understanding if this candidate is the ONE for your team.
Our experience with Groupone39 has exceeded our expectations. We were in need of one of the most important leaders on our staff to lead our worship ministry. Keath and his team spent time with us to learn who we are and found the perfect match. They walked us through the process to completion and we are confident we are positioned to excel in ministry to our congregation and community. We feel aligned with Groupone39 so well that we are engaging their services for two more staff positions we are needing to fill. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.“

Group ONE39 is an ever present help in time of trouble! Identifying excellent talent and finding the right culture fit for the church is something that comes so naturally to them. They take time to get to know the client and not try and make square pegs fit in round holes. This is so much better for the church and the person that they are placing!“
