You will see that I have been in business administration and operations management at several faith-based organizations since 1982. My roles have been increasingly diversified to accommo- date needs ranging from an emerging Ethnic Asian Church to an established Mega Church.

I recently managed business operations for an association of 85 churches located throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska with a membership totaling nearly 22,000. Reporting directly to the District Executive Minister, I played a key role in developing and monitoring district-wide projects.

You will also learn that I have administered capital budgets of up to several million dollars in the successful 1997 relocation of Overlake Christian Church from Kirkland to Redmond. The success of that project was facilitated by my management of various departments and combined workforce of 50 administrative and facility staff. A major accomplishment was the founding and development of Overlake Christian Foundation with an initial gift of $2,500 that has grown to several million dollars.

One of my most cherished accomplishments is watching the development of my team into competent and professional employees. Several have successfully moved from entry-level service providers into management positions.

Perhaps my greatest attribute is what my Senior Pastor referred to as my "servant's heart". Serving my church and community is not only my profession, it is my life.

I am excited about making a career change through parlaying my efforts and influence working for your company in real estate sales. I believe my blend of skill, work ethic, education and experience will bring value to your staff team. I am hopeful that you will concur.
