Our Ministries
 

Congregational Support Ministries

Church Usher Ministry
As John the Baptist was a forerunner for the ministry of Jesus Christ, the church usher is a forerunner for all other ministries in the congregation. An attitude the usher demonstrates in the foyer of the church is a forerunner of the ministry to be experienced in the sanctuary. At Risen Faith Fellowship, these are certain characteristics that we look for in a good usher. First, he/she must be filled with the Holy Spirit, loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, gentle, full of humor, goodness, faithful each week, resourceful, prompt and an ambassador of kindness.
