Dear Ms. Jessie Batts,
I am very interested in the Church Secretary position with Bethel Lutheran Church and I hope that you will seriously consider me for this position.
I have been a faithful member of the church for several years and I have very strong administrative skills with the ability to work independently to get the job done. I am familiar with all office equipment such as fax machines, copies and intercom systems. I have experience taking messages, setting up meetings and responding to phone calls and communications made by mail. I am computer literate with knowledge of MS Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access and Excel.
I have the ability to maintain a professional appearance and attitude at all times and I adhere to very strict ethical standards. I have the ability to maintain composure in all types of circumstances and I understand the need for discretion and confidentiality.
I can work flexible hours whenever required and respond quickly when something occurs unexpectedly and I have the ability to travel to different locations when needed. I am highly motivated and I possess excellent time management and organizational skills. I also have the ability to pay close attention to details.
I have the skills to prepare annual reports, make travel arrangements, attend board meetings and I have the ability to handle petty cash accurately by keeping records and acquiring receipts. I have the skills to schedule and help organize special events, maintenance services and cleaning for the church and reception area. I also have the ability to create weekly bulletins and information packets for new members.
