Ms. Jane Marston,
Church Office Manager
Brookside Community Church
16 Corrala Court
Winslow, CA 99999

Dear Ms. Marston:

On JobBankUSA.com I saw your posting for a pastoral assistant for Pastor Cooper. I was pleased to see it since I'm looking for such a position. I have five years of experience as one of two pastoral assistants at Hillside Community Church in Mountainside.

I particularly liked taking over paper work, filing, phone and e-mail messages, typing sermon notes, and keeping the pastor's office in good working order. I'm an 'organization lady' to be sure!

Please give me a call at 879-567-9090 and I'll be happy to visit your office to meet in person and discuss what I can bring to this position. I would welcome meeting Pastor Cooper, as well.

Thank you for taking time to read my cover letter and for considering me for the job.

I hope to hear from you soon.
