Perhaps this letter seems a bit random, but I wanted to reach out to you as one of our worship team members to let you know just how much I appreciate your ministry here at (name of church).
I can’t imagine what it would be like to attend church without the beautiful sound of music filling the atmosphere with praise to God. Whether that sound is on the various instruments or vocal expression, there can be little doubt that such talents and gifts are a wonderful enhancement to all that takes place in service.

Please accept my congratulations on your recent election victory.
You have accepted a position of leadership in a very tumultuous time. As Christians, we are called to be “salt and light” to the world around us, and I want to encourage you to take this mandate seriously as you make decisions that will affect not only how we live today, but how our children inherit the world that we are to leave them.

Your students will come to you from all walks of life, and I want to encourage you to take the time to get to know them and to get to know their stories.
