I am developing a web directory app whereby users main action will be to search for business addresses right from the home page.
Currently, I have a search box centered on the homepage. Like this:
While on subsequent pages, there will be a search bar underneath the menu bar, so that users can search anywhere they are on the website.

Or should I just leave the homepage as it is and then implement the search bar underneath the menu bar on other pages?
