Sample Youth Leader Thank You Email/Letter

Dear [Name]:

Now that we’ve been back a few days and have had a chance to recover, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for what you have made possible for our kids, not just on the mission trip, but for the entire year.

Your service as a youth group leader is an incredible gift to our church.  Your love of our kids and dedication to this program are truly inspiring.  The transformations that occur are the direct result of your time, talent and the caring relationships that you form with your team and the larger group.  You are making it possible for our kids to see God in themselves and others, and to experience a way of being community that is life changing.

We look forward to seeing you on [insert date] and to celebrating your leadership at the Youth Sunday service.

Thank you again for all that you do and all that you make possible!
