Lancaster Search

A No-Fee Pastor Search Firm


Pay what you want at the end of the search, if anything at all. Cost should never be a barrier in helping your church find your next Pastor.


You are never locked-in and have the freedom to go in a different direction at any point during the search process.


Your Church Search Team retains complete control of the entire search process and makes the ultimate hiring decision.


There are no hidden costs or add-ons. None.

How is this possible?

Dr. Jason Lancaster is a full time Lead Pastor who has also worked with pastors and churches for over 25 years. He is passionate about churches and pastors finding the right fit.

What can Lancaster Search offer our pastor search committee?

A Biblical and prayerful approach that utilizes the wisdom of the search team combined with the unique insights pastor Jason brings to the search. He can jump in at any point during the pastor search process in order to recruit and screen candidates.

Initially, the pastoral profile is dispersed throughout a variety of venues and networks to get the word out. However, the goal is not to wait passively for resumes to come in, but the focus is to actively seek out candidates nationwide. After a narrowing of the candidate pool, your search team will conduct all final interviews and make the hiring decision.

We found Jason to be very helpful in our search process

Our team was hesitant to use one of the larger search firms but were very comfortable with the arrangement we had with Jason.  We felt like he was a member of our team and many times kept us positive and moving forward.  Jason has a lot of contacts and sources that we did not have and after a couple of initial discussions he was able to zero in on the type of pastor we felt would be a good fit for our church.  Jason vetted the candidates initially before sending their names to us and every candidate we spoke to told us that Jason did a good job with the initial contact.  Jason was consistent to follow up with us after every meeting to see where we wanted to go next. I would highly recommend Jason to your team, even if you have a good source of potential candidates.  His contacts are wider and more varied, and he is able to produce a good number of good quality candidates.

We are so grateful!

We are so grateful for the passion that Jason has for partnering churches with suitable pastors. Jason not only perused resumes, but had phone conversations with potential fits for us, informed us, and then followed up to see how it was going.  He is thorough, caring and capable.  We could not be more thankful for the pastor and family that the Lord through to our congregation through Jason’s work.  There will be eternal impact from this.  Thank you so much, Jason!

Challenging Time - Realistic Solution

Pastoral turnover is rising as pastors hung on during the pandemic but now they are on the move. Many have transitioned to a new pastorate while some have stepped away from the ministry for a season of healing. Unfortunately, a number have left permanently.

All of this has resulted in a large number of churches seeking pastors while the pool of qualified candidates is shrinking. In addition, many churches are hurting financially due to a variety of factors over this last year. The added expense of a pastoral search is a stretch, and the luxury of a pastoral search firm is not even a part of the conversation. By God's grace, Pastor Jason can step into this challenging season to offer a realistic solution in helping churches find their next pastor to the glory of God.
