2023 Year-in-review


As we reflect on the past year at Vanderbloemen, we are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients through executive search, succession, compensation, culture, and diversity consulting. Our commitment to excellence and dedication to matching exceptional talent with ministry organizations have been central to our mission.

In 2023, we continued our journey of impact, proudly serving 408 clients across the United States and internationally. These partnerships allowed us to delve deeper into understanding the unique needs of each organization we had the privilege to collaborate with. We are honored to have worked alongside such amazing clients, and we express our heartfelt gratitude for their trust in our services.

Here are a few clients we had the privilege of walking alongside this year as we searched for their next key staff member:

One of the most fulfilling aspects of our work is witnessing the placement of talent in positions where they can flourish and make a meaningful difference. Throughout the year, we celebrated the placement of 159 outstanding candidates in various ministry organizations. Each placement represents not just a professional opportunity but a chance for these individuals to contribute their skills and passion to furthering the mission of these organizations and ultimately, the Kingdom.

Our recruiting team tirelessly engaged in the pursuit of finding the right fit for our clients, conducting 2,162 phone interviews. These conversations were instrumental in identifying exceptional candidates who align with the values and goals of the ministries we serve. The dedication and expertise of our team continues to be the cornerstone of our success.

Additionally, our team is passionate about providing resources that will help ministries grow farther, faster. Here are some of the top resources that we produced that the Vanderbloemen community couldn’t get enough of:
