Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that I am resigning my position as Pastor of First Christian Church, and will be leaving 1 month from the date on this letter. (Use the information that is in agreement with your Constitution and By-Laws if such language exists).
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.
It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter. After many years of joyful service, I must announce that I will be resigning my pastorate here at First Christian Church. While I have no doubt that it was God’s will for me to be here, I now believe that God is calling me to pastor at another church.
