FaithSearch Partners, the pre-eminent retained search firm serving all segments of the faith-based spectrum, today announced the addition of two nationally-renowned pastoral leaders to its search team. David Walters and Mike Tucker join FaithSearch as search consultants focused on the firm’s nonprofit and ministry-based searches.
David Walters serves as Senior Pastor of Alpharetta First United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, GA, and will continue in that role as he complements his pastoral service with a supporting role at FaithSearch. The Lawrenceville, Georgia, native has led the 5,000+ member congregation since 2019. One of his greatest passions is leading leaders to advance the Kingdom of God in their homes, workplaces, and churches.
“David brings a wealth of experience in ministry and leadership development to the FaithSearch team. His energy and passion for Christian leadership will prove beneficial for FaithSearch, our clients, and prospective candidates as we all work to advance God’s Kingdom,” stated FaithSearch Partners Senior Vice President Bryan Fowler.
Mike Tucker recently retired as the Speaker/Director of Faith for Today, the longest continuously broadcast religious television program in the world (and second longest-running TV program, period, behind only Meet the Press). Tucker, based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, continues to be a highly sought-after speaker for churches, special events, and marriage seminars. He served as pastor of two large churches in Texas before assuming his role at Faith for Today more than 16 years ago.
“Both Pastors Walters and Tucker significantly increase FaithSearch’s ability to support our church and parachurch clients during senior leadership transitions,” says Ed Fry, President/CEO and Founder of FaithSearch Partners. “David and Mike have sat in the pastor’s chair, preached from the church’s pulpit every week, and led large congregations. They know and understand the challenges pastors and parachurch leaders face and the importance of a structured, guided, comprehensive process FaithSearch can bring to search committees.”
FaithSearch Partners is the only executive search firm in the U.S. focusing exclusively on serving faith-based hospitals, healthcare organizations, nonprofits, ministries, churches, educational institutions, athletics organizations, and faith-oriented businesses. Based in Dallas with locations in Houston, Atlanta, Denver, Spokane, Birmingham, Asheville, and Tyler, FaithSearch is able to serve faith-based clients in all regions.
