Dear Pastor Jordan:

It is with great enthusiasm that I submit my application for the position of Church Administrative Assistant with the Trinity Church, which was listed in The Daily Times of Sunday. As an expert in providing clerical and office support services, I am confident that I am the right candidate for this position.

Since I understand the mission of the church so well, I am positive that I can perform this job effectively. My skills in managing administrative tasks that are particular to the church especially are above par and my keen organizational skills make my work especially productive. Specifically, I have a demonstrated ability to act as executive secretary to the senior pastor, design and produce monthly newsletters and bulletins, review and categorize incoming invoices, manage vendors, and perform basic bookkeeping. Additionally, I comprehend the need for maintaining a cordial conduct at all times as is the demand of this job.

I would like to meet with you in person so we can discuss the possibility of my joining of Trinity Church in Administrative Assistant capacity. I will call you after Sunday mass to see if we can decide a mutually convenient time to meet and can be reached at (002) 224-4444 in the interim.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
