Dear Rev. Horner:

This letter is in response to your advertisement for a Pastor’s position at San Lorenzo Church. With my graduation in Christian Studies, hands-on experience at Church and dynamic leadership and conflict resolution skills, I am confident that I can be an asset to San Lorenzo Church.

As noted on my resume, I am very enthusiastic about casting vision and developing leaders. I have a humble aspiration to constantly improve and build a world-class church and ministry operation. Since my faith is the driving force behind my long career, I have the ability to inspire, motivate and deliver pro-faith information to all age groups. Possessing a proven record to preach, pray, and disciple the church, and a demonstrated ability to lead and develop church staff, I am quite sure that I am the right candidate for this position.

I would love to meet you discuss further how I can be a credit to San Lorenzo Church for a long period of time. I can be reached at (925) 514-3255 if you need to contact me for further information on my credentials. Thank you for taking the time and reviewing my application. I look forward to meeting you in person soon.


Best regards,

Robert Redford
