About us . . . .

       And new positions in churches

  for exceptional outreach pastors.



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

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. Recommendations of present or former co-workers have a high value in the recruiting business. Another advantage of working with John is that he is approaching pastors that are customarily not seekingnew positions. They are generally happy where they are, they're successful and challenged. John's experience is that the individuals in such a group usually represent a higher level of competence. As well, you will find that John's recruiting experience, coupled with his spiritual gift of Discernment, will result in well-qualified candidates referred to you.

Our fees are set by the churches and determined by what the churches can afford. We do reserve the right to decline the church's offer, however. Our primary focus is to increase the number of outreach pastors at work in churches, and we are confident we will be adequately compensated for our contributions.


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. We believe that any other church can do as well or better.


Please consider using our services so you can more effectively reach out to those that do not yet know Christ. We look forward to working with you.
