To Whom it May Concern :
I am writing you to apply for the avalible Pastoral position. After hearing about the position I was very intrigued with the opportunity and even more so after reading the description.
This position has many opportunities for growth for me, as well as, opportunities that fit my personal giftings. Having had worked as the Director of Youth Ministry at Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church for five years I learned a lot about working within the church. My experience within youth ministry – being in charge of the entire department, publicity, event planning, leadership development and various other aspects of church life – will bring added depth to the efforts I will provide to this position. This opportunity would be an excellent chance for me to sharpen the skills I already have and learn more about what it means to work within the church.
I would love to set up an interview as soon as possible to see if this would be a good match for both your church and myself. My resume provides additional details about my background and experience. But if for some reason you would like additional information, please just ask.
Thank you so much for your consideration. Looking forward to hearing form you.
