To USHER YOU IN TO PRESENCE OF GOD

1. What is the role of church ushers?

The church usher role is one of many different roles in the system of church hospitality.  They help create a great hospitality experience that your first time church visitor or long term member will have on a given day.


2. Areas of responsibility for the role of church ushers

Generally, the ministry of church ushers focuses on the following areas of responsibilities

  • Assist in the seating members and visitors
  • Provide care for the needs of the Pauline Fathers during the service.
  • Attend to the needs of the visiting speaker or guests of honor.
  • Maintain the decorum of the service, according to the church’s tradition.
  • Watch for the safety of the congregation and acting as the line of first response to medical emergencies.
  • Collect offering.
  • Attend to altar ministry or response ministry as people respond to the sermon’s invitation.

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

Psalms 84:10
