When I first started working at Bayside Church and became Al Soto’s immediate supervisor, I was initially impressed with Al’s enthusiasm, communication skills and spiritual demeanor. Over the last year as Al has reported to me he consistently demonstrated all of these qualities and more, and I heartily endorse him for any senior pastor position.
Al is reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. His ability to cast vision, recruit volunteers, accomplish goals and work as a team player is unparalleled and it is because of his excellence in this area that I repeatedly have used Al as an example of how to be successful in ministry with our other campus pastors. Al multitasks effectively and is able to handle a high-volume workload. He consistently met or surpassed the metrics that were set for his campus.
Of particular value to me as a campus pastor was Al’s team player mind-set, enthusiastic embrace of change, ability to work with minimal supervision and unwavering commitment to exceeding expectations. I regularly received unsolicited praise from church members and staff commending Al’s outstanding level of service, professionalism and follow-through.
Organized and diligent, Al quickly learns systems and best ministry practices while at the same time building strong relationships with city officials and prominent influencers in his community.
Al is a hardworking, top-performing pastor and team leader. He has my highest recommendation, and I am happy to furnish more details if you would like additional information.
All the best,
Pastor of Multi-sites
