Dear Pastor, Leader, Mentor,
Thank you for taking the time to fill out this character reference application for the resident. He/She is applying for admission to Shoreline Church's Worship Residency and is asking you to provide an honest, clear reference. Serious consideration is given to this reference, so your comments are important. The residency trains committed Christians to serve the local church.
Please be frank and fair in your comments to assist our assessment of the applicant. If the applicant currently attends another church in Austin, Texas, they will be required to make Shoreline Church their home church for the duration of their residency. Permission and release from their Pastor/Leader is required in such situations.
