Will Your Church Be Using A Pastoral Search Firm For The Next Pastor??


Readers, what do you think about a church using a search firm to find a new senior pastor? Well, it's a practice that has taken hold among many nondenominational churches worldwide.

Moody Church in Chicago is using a search firm to find a successor for its senior pastor, Erwin Lutzer, who is retiring. Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington found a campus pastor through a search firm. And Grace Baptist Church in east-central Mahomet, Ill., used one to find its senior pastor, who later tapped the same firm to find a youth, pastor.


Search firms charge churches about one-third the compensation of the minister job they are helping to fill, firm executives said. Those salaries often fall between $75,000 and $125,000, which yields a fee of $25,000 to about $42,000 per search.

Minister search firms play matchmaker for new pastors

  1. They CHARGE 25 to 42 grand to FIND A PASTOR FOR THE CHURCH?!?!

    That is financially foolish. That money could have been better spent on sending a current member to school to become a pastor.
