DWIGHT WHITWORTH

PRESIDENT & ChIEF CONSULTANT

“For years, I was troubled that churches had limited resources to help them find staff members. There were a few organizations that offered church staffing services, but they just received resumes and vetted candidates on a very clinical basis without knowing the specific personality of the church and never personally meeting with the candidates they recommended. That is what drove me to provide that resource churches need.”

– Dwight Whitworth

 

“ One of the things I really love about Dwight Whitworth is the way he can come up with a unique solution to a seemingly impossible problem. He is a creative, intelligent and trustworthy leader. I have grown to respect Dwight, who has, no matter the size of the church, devoted his time, energy and manpower to that churches success. DWC is built around a calling from God not a business model, and I believe this is made all the difference.”
Ricky Hilton, Worship Pastor

“Experience brings wisdom… and Dwight Whitworth has plenty of both. His message is concise. compelling and contagious.”
Derrick Johnson, producer, writer, arranger

“Dwight Whitworth is among the most gifted, creative, and versatile men I have met. In addition, he is a people person, a servant leader, and an accomplished consultant. With a unique depth of experience, Dwight speaks with clarity and conviction as a leader of leaders.”
Dr. Stephen Cutchins, Senior Pastor

DEBRA WHITWORTH

VICE PRESIDENT

Debra not only brings decades of experience as a successful executive assistant to CEOs and corporate attorney groups but also a lifetime in ministry. Growing up as a pastor’s daughter then marrying a pastor, she continues to impact many through her own personal ministry and through skillfully supporting Dwight in his ministry in churches and now at DWC.
