How do you know if you can trust the process?
The phrase “trust the process” has become commonplace of late. Whether it’s a banner in a football stadium, a slogan thrown out in a press conference, or sage advice from a trusted friend or counselor, it seems that we are constantly being told to trust the process. Over the last several weeks, I’ve outlined our process for helping churches find the right person for their team. We talked about our assessments, our interviews, why we believe that virtual works, and how we leverage video technology. We’ve talked about why we do what we do and how it has worked in the past.
If you are like me, when you read through descriptions of a process you quickly move to the bottom line and ask “so how do I know it will work?” To answer that, I’d like to share a few numbers and then let you hear from one of the people who we’ve walked alongside in the hiring process:
- We launched Chemistry three years ago and have led 61 searches to date, placing candidates in 41 churches (we currently have 20 searches in process).
- We have conducted over 1,000 video interviews with candidates since we launched.
- We have had the opportunity to connect with thousands of candidates who are in a season of transition and serve as a resource to them.
While these are helpful numbers to think about, what I really get excited about is when one of our clients is excited enough about our process that they are willing to share about it. Rick Henderson is the new Senior Pastor at Autumn Ridge Church in Rochester, MN. We have walked with him through two hires at a previous church, here is what he thinks about our process:
