    Ushering With A Mission 

    Ushering With A Mission 

    by Victor L. Davis 

    This is a Training Manual for the Great Commission Usher to be used in the ongoing task of disciplining believers. It is the first comprehensive guide that is specifically addressed to the needs of one of the most neglected groups in many of our churches today, the Usher. If you have been in search of a resource that will aid you in addressing the spiritual needs of Ushers, then continue reading. Ushering With a Mission emphasizes the importance of disciplining the individual usher. Ushering is viewed as a ministry rather than a committee or board activity. We approach the Ministry of Ushering as from a Christ centered, biblical perspective. Ushering is not something we simply do because it's our Sunday to usher, it is a lifestyle resulting from the overflow of the Spirit-filed life.
