The Ushers Ministry participates in creating, fostering, and maintaining a welcoming environment in the sanctuary of the Mount Zion Baptist Church. The inviting atmosphere rests on the ushers visibly displaying the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. This love must be experienced from the greeting to the seating of worshippers, from ushers meeting the requests of worshippers to ushers anticipating the needs of worshippers, and from the offering to the benediction. Finally and crucially, ushers are committed to pastoral leadership to “help people come expectantly into the presence of the Lord, become renewed in the sanctuary, and depart with a sense of Christian mission [Alvin D. Johnson. The Work of the Usher, Judson Press: Valley Forge, PA. P. 51].”
