A Church usher is the first official representative of the Christian Church that anybody sees when they arrive and as such plays an important role in making the people feel welcome to the service.
He introduces visitors to the church by having them complete a visitor’s card. The church usher helps the Pastor to make the service a success by putting the congregation in the right frame of mind to receive the message.
The usher meets the people with a pleasant smile, a warm welcome and handshake, and directs them to comfortable seats. He also sees to it that perfect order is kept in and around the church at all times during the services.
