Usher Ministry

Usher Ministry

They are doorkeepers in the house of the Lord (Psalm 84:10).  With a friendly and positive attitude, they greet as well as assist congregants and visitors inside the sanctuary.  Their main mission is to enhance the worship experience by making the worshipers feel welcome and comfortable.

Duties of the Usher:

The ministry to which a person is called when he or she becomes a church usher can best be described in the following ways:

  • Greet worshippers, making every attempt to help them feel welcome and at ease.
  • Escort members and guests to their seats.
  • Distribute materials related to the service/meeting such as bulletins, hymnals, handouts, etc.
  • Receive certain offerings, delivering them promptly to the treasury department of the church.
  • Maintain alertness for any emergency that may arise, relieving the need or contacting the person(s) needed to provide the proper assistance.
  • Direct individuals out of the service/meeting in an orderly fashion (in most instances row by row), leaving the sanctuary or room ready for the next service or meeting.
