The J. Arthur Group

We find great people for churches 

Let's talk 


The J. Arthur Group is led by John Emanuelson, a seasoned recruiter with over twenty five years of successful experience. John loves being a recruiter, and he is eager to help churches that need outstanding candidates as well as pastors that have identified the need to move to greater and more challenging opportunities. 

John typically finds potential candidates by networking. That is, when requested to find a Senior Pastor to fill a vacant position he will start by contacting the contacts that he has developed over the years to obtain their recommendations of the most capable candidates, he will then contact the people that have been recommended, interview them, and of those that are qualified he will then submit the best candidates to the church he is representing. One advantage of working with John is that he is approaching pastors that are typically not seeking new positions. That is, they're generally happy where they are, they're successful and challenged, and our experience is that such a group oftentimes represents a higher level of competence and effectiveness. John is equipped to identify qualified senior pastors, executive pastors, as well as associate pastors of worship, outreach, youth, children, and more. 

Should your church hire a candidate referred by The J. Arthur Group the fee is quite reasonable. It starts at fifteen hundred dollars, and it could be higher should the requirements submitted by the church be more comprehensive than usual. The church will have the right to accept or reject the fee before any work is started. This work is both part of John's ministry as well as a small source of income, which helps to explain the modest amount being offered.

There are guarantees built into the fee structure, as well, and there are no upfront charges. The church only pays a fee if the candidate referred by The J. Arthur Group is unconditionally the best the church has found. 

We look forward to working with you.
