Lets Build an amazing staff together
We, as The Equip Group, are so excited to partner with your Church in getting to know you and your church, define your ideal candidate, and build your unique search for a new staff member. As part of this process, the first step will be for us to understand all things YOU!
You will help us by:
- Educating us on your organizational identity – your mission, vision, values, beliefs, etc.
- Providing us with in-depth organizational details ranging from your community to calendar
- Collaborating with us to build out the role description & details for your new hire
- Identifying what makes up your ideal candidate – including traits, skills, and your non-negotiables
