Church Resignation Letter Pastor – 2


Dear Church Board,

I am writing you to deliver the news that as of (date), I will be stepping down from my post as pastor of Christian Life Church. I assure you that this was not an easy decision, but it is time for me to move on to the next steps in God’s plan for my life.

I know I speak on behalf of our family as I can truly say that this wonderful group of people have blessed our lives greatly.  I hope in some small way we have blessed your lives through our teaching and preaching, visitation and more.  Even though we are moving on from this place physically, a piece of our hearts will always be here with you.
