In my youth I would watch the ushers at church and thought it would be neat to usher. It didn't look hard and I'd get to greet everyone. When I got old enough I volunteered and was hooked. After I was married and moved to the big city, the church I attend was very large, and like most churches they needed ushers. I was promoted very quickly and the responsibility didn't bother me. Then I was drawn to a new daughter church. This was a challenge, a brand new church. I offered what I could. When things got settled I was running one of the services. When the Head ushers spot came open I didn't think I was ready, so I prayed about it. A calmness came over me and I knew then it was what God wanted me to do.'

Ushering with a Mission

The typical training manual addressed techniques ushers should use in carrying out those duties. Davis's "Ushering with a Mission" goes a step further and emphasizes the importance of disciplining the individual usher.

As we enter our church, the first person we often see is the usher. While many may look at the position of usher as simply a social one, it can be so much more. In "Ushering with a Mission," author Victor L. Davis presents the first comprehensive guide specifically addressed to the needs of the usher. The traditional approach to ushering focused on the task of meeting, seating, and greeting worshippers. The typical training manual addressed techniques ushers should use in carrying out those duties. Davis's "Ushering with a Mission" goes a step further and emphasizes the importance of disciplining the individual usher. Ushering is viewed as a ministry rather than a committee or board activity. The ministry of ushering is approached from a Christ-centered, biblical perspective. Ushering is not something we simply do because, "It's our Sunday to usher." We do it because it is a lifestyle, resulting from the overflow of the Spirit-filled life. "Ushering with a Mission" stresses the importance of Bible study, prayer, and personal evangelism with nonbelievers. Ushers will find fellowship with other believers in the Body of Christ as they explore ways to fulfill the great commission and commandment of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
