Our Culture


Partnering with our church and nonprofit clients requires trust. At Slingshot Group, we take the necessary time to build relationship and learn about our client’s personality, values and challenges, because you can’t trust someone you don’t know. Relationships shape our process and define who we are. We don’t just have clients—we have friends.

We’ve also invested in a network of over 45 associates, bringing years of experience and cutting edge thinking to staff and local church and organizational development. Just like the churches and nonprofits we serve, our associates are continuously challenged to grow through coaching relationships of their own. You’ll often find them at conferences and events, not just as a sponsor but as speakers, leaders and students.

And our growing divisions are built to scale. Even though we are a large coaching and search firm, we can flex to meet your needs and design engagements that work specifically for you.

Slingshot isn’t  interested in just filling an opening. Their number one priority is to help you find the right person with the specific gifts, passion, and team chemistry to do the ministry that God has called your church to do.

Parkview Christian Church

OUR COMMUNITY


Whether you’ve just heard about Slingshot or are an old friend, we want you to be part of our community. From blogs to special gatherings, we will be offering helpful resources to anyone and everyone interested. Our vision and mission is to see the local church and ministry minded non-profits make the impact they were designed by God to make. That vision keeps us awake at night and we hope that vision leads you to be part of our community.

It’s all about who you know


Our people and our process set us apart. We become students of your church, and we never give up. But don’t take our word for it—take theirs.


My Slingshot associate was proactive, insightful, available and provided coaching along the way. This is a great company that will save you precious time, provide high quality candidates, and ensure your church stays on mission.

Seth Bryant, Executive Director of NextGen, Indian Creek Christian Church

Slingshot fulfilled all of their commitments to us in a timely way with the highest level of character and integrity and were a joy to work with. Without Slingshot’s help, our search would have involved a much longer process and may not have found such a quality candidate.

Phil Hopper, Senior Pastor, Abundant Life

Attentive. Connected. Prayerful. Relational. Tenacious. Discerning. Accessible. Just a few of the words that describe my experience with the worship associates of Slingshot Group. Beyond a search firm, they have become valuable partners in our ministry.

Gene Appel, Senior Pastor, Eastside Christian Church

Slingshot isn’t  interested in just filling an opening. Their number one priority is to help you find the right person with the specific gifts, passion, and team chemistry to do the ministry that God has called your church to do.

Bill Brown, Executive Pastor, Parkview Christian Church

Slingshot could not have done a better job of beating the bushes for qualified candidates. They never gave up. They kept searching. They continually had new ideas and found new ponds in which to search. Personally I cannot imagine more dedicated men and women who love the Church of Jesus Christ and want to see their clients’ ministries succeed more these outstanding men.

Branson Sheets, Lead Pastor, Covenant Church

What I appreciate about Slingshot is they know and love the local church and shape their hiring processes around the unique context of each community

Albert Kim, Executive Pastor, Christian Assembly Church

Our community extends beyond just Slingshot.
