If you're a Pastor, Teacher, or an Employer you may get asked to write a letter of recommendation quite often. To simplify this process, you may want to memorize an easy formula that outlines how to write your letters.

  • 1. Determine the Purpose of the Recommendation Letter - Why are you being asked for this Recommendation Letter? Is it for your church member's acceptance into a certain school, employment purposes, or to get into specific program? It is important to understand what the purpose of the letter is so that you can highlight appropriate characteristics.
  • 2. Make a List of Positive Attributes - Write down a quick list of positive attributes and characteristics of the church member for whom you are writing the letter. Don't worry about grammar or spelling just get the list down first.
  •  3. Link the Attributes to the Purpose of the Letter - Now choose which positive attributes match characteristics the recipient of the letter would like to see highlighted. Is this letter going to a dean of a college? Highlight academic efforts. To a potential employer? Highlight examples of responsibility. To a Pastor of a church? Highlight examples of moral conviction. This should be accomplished in 1 paragraph of 3 to 4 sentences. If you are not a skilled writer, consider writing a bullet-point paragraph such as the following example. I feel Jane is qualified to be a counselor in your summer camp program because she is:Organized Responsible Good with children Creative Energetic
  • 4. Find One Specific Example that Exemplifies Character - It's tempting to write lengthy letters of recommendation that ramble on and on, but it's best to keep the letter short and to the point so it will read. Write a one-paragraph story about a specific experience with the person/member in question where she displayed good character. Keep it short, but specific.I have two different sample Recommendation Letters below from Pastor to school, employers... for church members.

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer
