Subject: Application for position of Youth Pastor
Dear Mr. Packard,
I write to introduce myself and also apply to your Youth Pastor position at Crosby Church. My name is Joseph Vasquez, and I have included this cover letter and resume for your attention.
I have included my qualifications as a Youth Pastor which details a career that spans over 16 years. I received my formal studies and training from Calvary Academy; and have worked in two of the state churches in the past 16 years as a Youth Pastor. I have also facilitated a number of urban relief and anti crime programs for troubled youth, community family programs, and other church sponsored events to both grow the congregation and also do the Lord’s Will. I know I could bring a valuable set of benefits to your church at Elk Horn Baptist Church in Campbellsville, KY. I know fully well how to communicate and inspire children of all ages, and have most experience with children ages 8-14.
Thank you for your review of this cover letter and resume. I know I would make a great choice for this Youth Pastor position at Crosby Church, and I would love to have an interview in the next few weeks if it would suit you.
