Pastoral Search Committee;

After reading your post for a Pastor, I would like to know more about

what you are looking for in a Pastor, where you are at as a church. I

firmly believe that the candidacy process is importantly difficult, so

that the needs of the church can be assumed by the right person, the one whom God has chosen for you. May our Lord and savior help you through

this long and difficult process.

That being said, would you please take a few moments of your time to look over my resume in consideration of your need of a Pastor. If you think that I could be a potential

candidate, based on my resume, I would enjoy further correspondence with you. I

will pray that God will guide and direct your pastoral search, and the

He will bless your efforts with the perfect match for your congregation.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Brian Sheldon
