Feel free to use and edit this sample invitation below to take your pastor to lunch below in text.
Dear [pastor name],
I hope this note finds you well. I have something important I would like to discuss with you.
I’ve been thinking about how my faith intersects with my work lately and would love your counsel. When your schedule permits, I would like to buy your lunch and discuss how to better minister in the area of influence in which God has placed me here at work. Rather than meet at a restaurant, I’d like you to come by my place of work first, so you can have an idea about what I do between Sundays. I also think it would be great for you to meet some of my co-workers so that perhaps some of their misconceptions about pastors can be corrected. It might even open an opportunity to invite them to our church.
Most important, I highly respect your leadership and ministry in my life and would be delighted to spend more time getting to know you on a personal level. Please let me know what dates would work best for you.
[Sign your normal close][your name]
We hope this encourages you to Take Your Pastor to Lunch and spread the message of the Faith & Work movement.
