Overview of the Usher Ministry
To serve the church in this important ministry, we cannot say enough on just how important this role is to the church.
Church ushers serve with a special extraordinary welcome by providing a warm and safe atmosphere to usher in God’s presence. The Usher Ministry serves the people and creates an atmosphere for hospitality. Ushers are, in simple terms, “doorkeepers for the house of the Lord.”
Ushering provides an opportunity for you to give God’s best. If you think that ushering is simply taking someone to their seat and collection the offering on Sunday morning, you may need to broaden your thoughts. At many worship services, ushers set the tone for welcoming. Ushers provide the friendly smiles, warm greetings and communication that demonstrate Christian love from the moment guests appear on the congregation’s doorsteps.
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. – Psalm 84:10 (KJV)
