Faith-Based Executive Search

Across Denominations and Affiliations

Since its founding, Lindauer has been a trusted resource and partner to faith-based nonprofits, representing the full spectrum of religions, beliefs, tenets, and missions for searches at all levels. Our network stretches across the U.S. and globally, uniquely qualifying our team to resource and uncover the very best match for your distinctive needs. From smaller niche non-profits to global operations, our search experts serve the complete gamut of mission-focused organizations that seek leadership with strong spiritual and/or faith-based values.

Our work has ranged from Presidents, CEOs, and Executive Directors to Cabinet-level Leaders, Regional Directors, program leads, and frontline development and marketing professionals. Lindauer team members embrace, respect, and appreciate the principles, traditions, and ethos represented by all faiths and bring a broad network to engage highly qualified candidates, who possess both the technical expertise as well as the mission-based and philosophical alignment. Our consultants have served as executive leaders, senior management, and human resource/talent professionals in a myriad of nonprofit contexts, which creates velocity and breadth in understanding the exclusive needs and qualities presented by each client and candidate.

Our team also recognizes the critical role of inclusion and access in faith-based organizations. Lindauer has been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in nonprofits – including in the faith-based arena – since the firm’s founding. Today, our team continues its leadership in the advocacy for equity and anti-racism work with boards, leaders, hiring managers, search peers, a trusted network of industry advisors and consultants, and an extraordinary roster of talented professionals.

Let us help your organization recruit + retain top nonprofit talent

“Lindauer was responsive to our needs every step of the way. They brought a wealth of knowledge about the higher education landscape and helped us define what we were looking for — not just experience but the type of person we needed. We stressed the need for diversity in the candidate pool, and they were thoughtful and deliberate on who and how they recruited. We knew it was a big task and made the right decision in hiring Lindauer.”
