St Louis Church
Peace River, AB D6V 3E9


Dear Ms. Johnson,

Your job advertisement for the position of Church Administrative Officer grabbed my attention because your requirements are closely parallel to my skills and work experience. Along with my graduate diploma in Administration and 3 years of experience as an Office Assistant, I am certain in my ability to become a valuable member of St Louis Church.

I am familiar with the church setting and have a tendency to develop personal relationships with church members. I have a good command over computer and management software, and able to communicate with large and small groups with confidence.

Besides my communication skills, I have good staff management skills and can support to all staff members working for the church. I am well aware to work as in charge of hiring, firing and disciplining of staff members. Additionally, I can handle the ordering of new supplies and equipment for church and staff use.

As an experienced Administrative professional, I’d welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss how my education and skills would be beneficial for St Louis Church. You may contact me any time on (000) 999-3333 in order to arrange a meeting time.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
