The Ushering Ministry started right from creation.
1Cor 12:28 “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.”
In LWM, the Ushering Ministry is as old as LWM. Ushers of LWM, are not only door-keeper, seat and stage arrangers, and other maintenance, they are God’s elect. Today’s church is so challenging, that so much is expected from the ushering Ministry. Because the Church is a living organism, challenges arise every day that is why today’s Ushers must be very dynamic, with an ear for the Holy Spirit and eager to run with the vision of the leadership.
Our vision is to take the Ushering Ministry to the next stage, where God and man will be pleased with the services we render in our churches while aligning itself with the vision of the LWM, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
One other great vision is to bring all the Ushers to the knowledge of God so as to flow with the vision of LWM by registering and attending courses with the LWTC. The year 2015 is the year for Ushers to be trained more in readiness for the task ahead. To work as a team and creating a warm and welcome environment for the entire church.
Our primary objective is to raise men and women with fear of God, men of honest report, full of Holy Ghost and wisdom, who will do the work of Aaron and Hur (Ex 17:12) who will be like Joseph of Arimathea (Matt 27:57). To be part of what God is doing in His Church and also to acquire more teachings, knowledge and workshops. 2Tim 2:15 – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.
Our activities have expanded that all our church / regional Ushers have a day for their meetings, while all the Ushers in LWM meet once a month for our general meeting where we discuss issues and pray and also strategize for the work ahead, we also help out in cleaning projects, visitation, tarry meetings for Ushers, making sure that our environment is well-secured and other things that may be directed by the leadership.
- Ushers in LWM, home, and abroad churches are united – running with one vision and Purpose.
- Ushering Ministry has a body called “National Working Committee” comprising of all the Head Ushers in LWM Churches who meet on a monthly basis to pray and strategize the way forward in Ushering Ministry.
- We have been able to hold Ushers Conventions / Conferences for the past three years, the first of its kind in LWM, with the Themes: (1) Mobilization (2) Patriotisms, and (3) Leadership; all of these experienced a huge turnout of Ushers from all over LWM churches. Not only was the Conferences well-attended, the teachings and impartation from the resource persons were so great even the Ushers were clarified from the questions and answers sections which opened our eyes of understanding to the call of God on us.
