Why Slingshot Nonprofit?

Looking for a search and coaching firm focused squarely on serving faith-based nonprofits and Kingdom-minded businesses? At Slingshot Nonprofit, we leverage our decades of executive-level leadership in corporate business, nonprofits, academia and the Church to help identify and introduce you to your future leaders. And we care, first and foremost, about ministry, being a 501(c)3 ministry ourselves.

While the desire of many nonprofits is to gain access to the millions of people who gather together as the Church each weekend, Slingshot is already in the Church. For nearly a decade, we have successfully served hundreds of local churches—large and small, of all denominations—across America, helping them find great pastoral leadership. That direct pipeline—combined with our 55+ well-connected associates around the country—is a unique piece of what only Slingshot Nonprofit can bring to your current or future leadership needs. Plus, we know literally thousands of leaders in the nonprofit and corporate world as well. From this group, we have assembled an “inner circle” of more than 50 highly-networked professionals across a range of disciplines, age groups and geographies who have committed to assist us in our work. Plus, we offer a unique speciality in being able to meet leadership needs not only in the USA, but across the globe as well.

We are practitioners who have walked where you have walked and who will take the time to understand your unique mission, culture and needs. And we demonstrate that commitment by our promise to stay on the job until it gets done—and gets done right.

Fresh talent … long-lasting results. Slingshot Nonprofit. Next Level People.

Slingshot’s vast network and experience helped us land the ideal candidate for our Chief Development Officer.

This was our first experience with a “search firm.” Slingshot hit it out of the park. We gathered a deeper understanding of our own organization, received great candidates, and Slingshot coached us through our interviewing process to a successful conclusion. Simply fantastic.

Slingshot’s dedication, scope of network and commitment to excellence resulted in the best possible candidate being vetted and placed in a timely manner. Their partnership throughout the process was a true blessing to our team!

Working with the Slingshot Group was an amazing experience. Their processes are thoughtful and designed to place candidates for long-term, maximum Kingdom impact. I’m so glad God used the Slingshot Group to get me to my new assignment, where I am thriving!

Slingshot was a incredible partner with our ministry. We felt that their hearts were dedicated to finding the very best person for our needs.

We were expanding and upgrading our team and its capabilities and went to Slingshot to conduct three searches. They invested the time to ensure we knew exactly what we needed and then leveraged their extensive network to deliver a great list of candidates for our evaluation. Their methodology substantially reduced the work we had to do and, in the end, we hired great people who have been exactly what we had hoped to find.

Slingshot’s vetting process is one of the best I have ever come across. We found their Q&A extremely helpful in directing our attention to key areas of interest or concern for each of the candidates selected. The weeding out process was seamless and done with confidence. When the right candidate surfaced, the process was only confirming.

Slingshot is a great example of efficiency and effectiveness, leveraging their networks and expertise to serve our unique mission. They carefully studied our needs and crafted the search for the right Executive Director who could take us into the future, giving us the best candidate from a truly national search.

Innovative, creative, strategic, organized, sensitive and loyal are all words I would associate with Neal. He’s a pleasure to work with. You don’t get unwanted surprises when working with him. He’s straightforward and clear in his communications and, if there’s a job to get done, Neal will be there for the duration.

Slingshot was responsive, resourceful and outstanding … surpassing our expectations at every turn. The candidates were excellent and the knowledge they demonstrated was a true blessing to our ministry.

Neal has been an indispensible counselor to me in my role at American Leprosy Missions as I continue to lean on him for advice on organizational and directional decisions. Any executive looking for someone to advise them can count on Neal to bring his diverse background, personal integrity and creative problem solving to the table.

Neal is a true professional, not only in his approach to the position but in his personal interaction with me. His integrity, transparency and support made the process a very positive experience. I highly recommend him for your specialized hiring needs. He has the ability, desire and perseverance to get the job done, and get it done right.
