Several years ago, God placed a burden on the founders, Ed and Christy Ivie's heart for executive leaders pastoring churches and missions’ organizations across the globe. Their hearts are heavy for spiritual leaders, as they understand the nuances and complexities of leading large organizations during unprecedented times. Out of their own journey of pastoring for three decades and experiencing significant growth, success, pain, and heartache they were compelled to found exo18 to come alongside executive leaders in supportive ways. They work with an incredible group of executive leaders on the exo18 team who have proven track records of their own. 

Finding the right leader for a ministry position is challenging. It's hard to know who you should interview, and after you've interviewed candidates it can be difficult to determine who will be a good fit for your team.

The exo18 team matches organizations with qualified ministry candidates based on competency, chemistry, character, and capacity for a great fit on both sides.
