Welcome to Dwight Whitworth & Company, a team of great pastors from all ministry positions (lead, worship, student, executive, children, and technology) and Christian university leaders dedicated to pairing great churches with great candidates in churches large and small and from traditional to blended to contemporary.



Dwight has lived his life following God’s call to minister wherever He led and was groomed for ministry from childhood by his home church pastor. Mentored by Dr. David Randlett of Liberty University, the pioneer of both today’s traditional and contemporary church music programs, Dwight dedicated much of his personal ministry to building strong worship and music ministries in churches ranging from 150 members to 6,000+ members, and from traditional to contemporary music. Having also served as a student pastor, associate pastor, and senior pastor, he is well equipped to serve as DWC’s president and chief consultant to churches across the United States.



We help small churches and large ones. At times, we have even worked pro bono for some churches that couldn’t pay anything. All our client churches receive the same quality consultation, ministry, and dedication. Weekly fees are capped by your church’s weekly financial package. If hours exceed the cap for that week, those additional hours will be pro bono.


Your DWC consultant will personally visit your church, get to know your church staff, leadership, and church family, and will participate in your worship service to identify your specific needs and potential.


Taking what your DWC consultant learns about your church, our candidate vetting process begins. It is detailed, structured and proven successful, enabling us to find the candidate who pairs with your church family, staff, members, vision and potential. We will keep you informed every step of the way. Your consultant can also pull from the wisdom and experience of the entire DWC team, if needed.


Your DWC consultant will present to your pastor or search committee a Proposed Candidate who pairs well with your church. The Proposed Candidate will have been thoroughly vetted and will not be considering any other church while being considered for your church.

Who We Are


“I believe our team was encouraged and inspired because he showed them what our worship service could look like… I think the process used by Dwight Whitworth & Company is both effective and Christ-honoring.” 

Ben Stears- Lead Pastor, Meridian,  Mississippi                           

“I want to give a shout-out to Dwight Whitworth and Company and thank them for their diligence in helping us secure our new worship pastor. The journey to discovering the right man to pair with our church was very unique. Dwight and the team remained focused to the priority of finding a gifted, talented candidate that truly loves Jesus and fits our church’s personality. I truly believe we found God’s man for us. The future of our worship ministry looks bright. Thank you DWC!”

Mike Phillips-Pastor, Belmont, North Carolina

“I just wanted to let you know that we are very very pleased with both Shawn and Garrett. They’ve exceeded our expectations as staff members and are really contributing greatly to the team. So, thank you all for your efforts in that journey of finding them.” 

Cliff Lea- Lead Pastor, Leesburg, Florida

“Easter is only 10 Sundays away! If a church is desiring to hire a worship pastor after the first of the year–they had better get on it. We used DWC a little over 2 years ago and found the right match in 7 weeks. It’s been a game changer after searching for nearly 2 years. This is one of the biggest hires the church makes–don’t waste any more time! The process can be daunting but looking back–it worked! So thankful for their help in finding the right fit. It’s been a night and day difference for our church. Every Sunday I’m reminded we made the right decision.”

David Frye-Pastor, Calvary Raleigh Church, Raleigh, NC

“Dwight Whitworth & Company has become even more than trusted advisors. They have become friends in Christ who we know have God’s Kingdom and our congregation in their hearts.”  

Church Committee Selection Chair, Ohio
