To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to write to you in reference to the worship arts/music position that you have available. I
have been serving the church in a music role since I was 15 and went into full-time ministry while still a
junior in college. I believe that worship should be at the very heart of everything we do but it is up to us
as spiritual leaders to teach the fundamentals of worship to the body of Christ and to lead by example.
The study and creation of worship is a passion of mine and I strive to find new and creative
ways to present the Gospel. My undergraduate degree focused not only on music and religion but the
theatre arts as well. I am visual learner and I believe that the more people see God before them, in our
lives and through our ministry, the better they understand it. I am very keen on set design, staging,
screen motions and lighting so that all elements on Sunday morning work together to focus on the
My MA in Worship Studies: Leadership, from Liberty University, has developed my love of long-term
worship planning and continues to challenge me to make each worship experience memorable to
the worshiper and meaningful to God. I have been working for the past two and half years furthering my
education and I am glad to say I will finish in October of 2013.
My time in ministry has and will forever be a time of growth and learning. I have had
moments where I have failed God and times when I have been overjoyed at what God was doing
through me. Thankfully His mercy and grace are always present and He continues to stretch and use
me to do great things for His glory.
I pray that through this brief look at my life and history God will reveal to both of us his plan for
my future and the future of your music ministry. You are welcome to contact any and all of my references if you
deem necessary without any notification to me. My current pastor and associate pastor supports and
encourages my decision to seek greater challenges for my ministry. Both have served as great leaders,
inspiring role models, and personal friends.
Blessing on your committee and their search,
