Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, as I stand before you all, newly ordained, I acknowledge in heartfelt gratitude the great honor and responsibility that has been bestowed upon me. My emotions are overflowing knowing the trust, faith, and confidence placed in me by God and by you, my church family. But even more so, I am grateful to one person who has been instrumental in my being here today, our respected Senior Pastor.
Pastor [Senior Pastor's name], I don't even know how to begin to thank you. Words seem inadequate when I reflect on the immeasurable impact you've made on my journey. I am truly blessed to have trained under your wing, learning from your wisdom, your faithfulness, and your unwavering commitment to God’s calling.
Your spiritual guidance has been a beacon of light for me in these past years. The lessons I have learned from you extend beyond homilies or bible study. Your genuine love for everyone, your selfless service, and your unwavering principles have set an example that I hope to emulate as I begin my service. Your prophetic voice has not only transformed the church but has shaped my understanding of what it means to be a true servant of God.
From the bottom of my heart, I am sincerely grateful for your investment in me. Your mentorship has cleansed my heart, strengthened my faith, and sharpened my theological understanding. As I embark on this new journey, the greatest gift you’ve given me is your prayers; and I know with all certainty that your continued prayers will be my guiding light for my ministry.
To say that I am thankful seems small in comparison to the magnitude of the gratitude that envelops my heart. But, yes, thank you, Pastor [Senior Pastor's name]. Thank you for believing in me, for guiding me, for fortifying me, and for being there for me in ways that words fail to articulate entirely.
As I take on my new role, I am reminded of Paul’s words in Philippians 4:9, “The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” You have walked the talk; you have shown us how to be Christ-like in words and deeds.
Rest assured, the knowledge, skills, values, wisdom, and experience you have shared with me will not be in vain. I commit to carrying forth your legacy of faith and service – while trying to be that beacon of light for those who seek God, just like you have been for me.
Yet, I also understand that my journey has only just begun, and the road may not always be as smooth. As I move forward, I humbly implore you to continue nurturing me with your guidance, counsel, and wisdom.
To everyone else present here, I am thankful to each of you for your love and blessings that have made me the person I stand before you today. We are one church, one body, united in Christ, and I feel immensely privileged and honored to be ordained and serve God alongside you.
In conclusion, knowing that each one of us is a unique manifestation of God’s spirit on earth, I humbly request your prayers, guidance, and support as we continue this beautiful journey together.
Thank you and God bless us all.
In Christ’s love,
