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
Good with children Creative
- 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.
