The value of a well-written letter is tremendous. It can provide a church member or visitor with a greater sense of value as they realize they are appreciated and recognized. Most leaders recognize the importance of letters, but many other pressing matters always seem to rise to the top. With over 22 years of ministry experience, Rev. Norman Lawrence offers these letters as a resource for use in your busy ministry. He writes letters from a pastor's background with the heart of a pastor.

Churches can customize a birthday greeting, do a search within their church database for birthdays for the week, and send a birthday letter out to those celebrating a birthday that week. Pastors can set up a reminder in a computer program that will help them remember to send out a letter on the anniversary date of the death of a loved one in the church. Often, the most difficult times for someone losing a loved one is the anniversary of the death, or even the wedding anniversary. Church people frequently do things to bless a pastor and family. A meaningful "thank you" in response is always appreciated. Did a new family visit your church? Use the Visitors Letter section to follow up with them to let them know how much their visit was appreciated. How about sending a letter to the Parents on their child's first birthday? They will appreciate the fact that you have thought of them on a very special day.
You will also find that these letters provide a great starting point for developing your own letters. They can spark ideas and help you identify new opportunities for staying in touch with your congregation. Ministry Letters are not meant to take away the "personal touch" of a pastor. Instead, they are intended to assist the pastor in constructing appropriate letters, and may easily be modified to the personal style of the pastor.

Thanks a load! Have already used it and it has been a great time saver - not to mention the fact that some of us pastors are verbal and not as strong when it comes to the prose. Thanks for the help. I will strongly recommend your site and product to my friends.

We have received many wonderful comments from parishioners in response to letters received. Often we have so little time to sit and write pastoral letters to our members, yet, it is so important. Thank you for renewing my ministry and for helping bring joy into someone’s sadness.
Thank you so much for making [Ministry Letters] available. We have developed letters for birthdays, anniversaries, first time visitors, etc., however, your book gave us fresh ideas to incorporate into our letters. We have been wanting to expand our letters into other areas and now with your help we will be able to do that immediately. Thank you for this wonderful tool that every office should have in their possession.

I just wanted to commend you on creating this program. It has been so beneficial to my church and me. I am the secretary at my church and I have been looking for some help trying to create letters and things of this nature. If you have any other tips that would help me in my ministry I would greatly appreciate the assistance. Again I would like to thank you..."
