Church Ushering 101

Praise the Lord Jesus!
It is a blessed opportunity granted to me by our God and Heavenly Father to come to you through this book.
For more than a decade I have been serving as a Church Usher; First at the Moi University Christian Union then at different worship assemblies.

By divine providence in my career I have worked as an emergency first responder and in most cases heading the protocol teams during different occasions.
Whether in church or at work, my slogan has always been ‘First In, Last Out’

Having attended and served in church for quite some time I have been heavily concerned about people who comfortably Belong to church but they don’t Participate in any acts of service in that church. Statistics show that believers who don’t do anything in church have a greater risk of not just dropping out of church but falling out of the faith.

Dear friends our commitment to Christ must be demonstrated through our service to him and to his church.
According to 1 peter 4:10… “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

This is to say that every Christian has been given at least one gift to use in their service to the body of Christ.
Some people think serving God is in preaching alone! That’s not true!

There are many ways we can advance the gospel and enhance the welfare of the body of Christ.

You may not necessarily be a pastor of a local church or an evangelist to the nations but you can serve in the choir, you can work as a Website administrator or social media coordinator, you can serve as a sound technician, you can serve in the media department, you can give your finances and resources, you can work in the kitchen, you may be led to teach a Sunday school class and more so you can choose to serve in the USHERING DEPARTMENT!

In this book am persuaded to give a singular attention to CHURCH USHERING which is one way we can serve God.

Having served in this department for many years I have collected some experiences and information that I strongly believe can help those who are already in the ushering departments in our churches and those who will join later.
God does no just want us to serve him; He wants us to do it well.
We therefore must always ask ourselves, what can I do, what can I add, what can I change in order to please the Lord in the area of assignment he has gifted me to serve, this applies to preachers and to ushers and to all other church workers as well.

I believe this Ushering Manual will help enhance the effectiveness of our ministry as ushers thus growing the impact of our local churches in our accomplishing our Kingdom mandate.

[…] It is important to remember that accidents and illness can happen at any time. Provision for first aid needs to be available at all times when people are at work. These includes when driving or working away from site.

You will probably not be required to usher every Sunday, but when you are on the schedule, give it 100 percent. 6.
