Trying to find wholehearted believers around us is like trying to find " needles in a haystack". We could spend many years searching in the pile of hay for those tiny needles in that pile; and perhaps find one needle after many years of effort. But the Lord says, "Don't waste your time looking for those needles. I know where they are. Just fall into the ground and die to yourself." Then the life of Jesus in you will become such a powerful magnet, that it will draw those "needles" (wholehearted disciples) out" (John 1:4, 12:32).
Other believers who are also seeking to live a godly life and to build the New Covenant Church will be drawn to you and to the message of the cross that you proclaim. That is God's way. He brings the wholehearted ones to us. "All whom the Father gives Me will come to Me", Jesus said in John 6:37. And the Father will do the same for us too. That is how we build the New Covenant Church.
