Dear [Church Board],
With a mix of emotions, I write this letter to tender my resignation from my position as the Pastor of [Church Name]. After much prayer, contemplation, and soul-searching, I have decided that it is time for me to step down from my pastoral duties in our beloved congregation. I believe it is essential to communicate this decision directly to you, the church board, as you have been my invaluable partners in ministry.
During my time as the Pastor of [Church Name], I have been blessed to witness the growth and transformation of our congregation. Together, we have experienced joy, sorrow, challenges, and victories. I am deeply grateful for the support, love, and trust you have shown me throughout my tenure. The memories forged within these walls and the relationships formed will forever hold a special place in my heart.
