About us . . . .

       And new positions in churches

  for exceptional outreach pastors.




                                                                           . . . a recruiting firm          



The J. Arthur Group is a recruiting firm that exclusively represents Outreach Pastors. John Emanuelson is the principal of the firm, and he brings more than twenty-five years of recruiting experience that was acquired in the competitive Silicon Valley market. 

John typically finds potential candidates by networking. That is, when requested to find a pastor for a church, he will start by reaching out to his contacts to identify the most capable candidates. Another advantage of working with Johnis that he is approaching pastors that are customarily not seeking new positions. They are generally happy where they are, they're successful, challenged. Our experience is that the individuals in such a group usually represent a higher level of competence. As well, you may assume that John's recruiting experience, coupled with his primary Spiritual Gifts of Evangelism and Discernment, will result in very well qualified candidates being referred to you.

Our fee for the work we offer is negotiable, and it is largely determined by what your church can afford. Our primary focus is to increase the number of outreach pastors called by churches. We are confident we will be adequately compensated for our contributions. The amount of the fee we can agree to may surprise you.As well, there are no upfront charges. The church will only pay a fee if the candidate referred by The J. Arthur Group is unconditionally the best the church has found, and the candidate accepts the church’s call.


Some churches in our part of the country, such as Rolling Hills Community Church in Tualatin, Oregon, and Bethel Church in Redding, California, have well-developed and productive Outreach Programs. Any other church can do as well or better.


Please consider how we might serve you so you can fulfill your most important objectives regarding those that do not yet know Christ.


We look forward to working with you.
