I Had Rather Be A Doorkeeper



We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to an organization that is made up of Interdenominational Church Ushers. We teach the silent uniform method of church ushering by means of signs and signals.


We believe that our Uniform System of Ushering can enhance any church service. Every church usher ministry should join your duly state established organization. If you would like to open a chartered state organization in your area, our regional leadership will assist with any inquiries.


The Virtual National Convention ends on Saturday, July 31, 2021.  Appropriate updates will be provided shortly thereafter.


The virtual convention will consist of Zoom meetings and Webinars (including the George T. Grier School of Ushering) from July 29 - July 31, 2021.

For specific details and additional information regarding future conventions (2022-2026), various fundraisers, etc., go to our National Page on this site.

This Month's Scripture
Bible Image.jpg

We should all strive to meet our almighty Father up in heaven when the time comes.  To prepare for this day we must read the Word of God and hide it in our hearts.  However, as we prepare to enter a new year, a new administration and the COVID-19 situation all over the land, we pray that you will find additional strength and comfort in the following scripture verses.

"Joab said, “If the Arameans are too strong for me, then you are to come to my rescue; but if the Ammonites are too strong for you, then I will come to rescue you. Be strong, and let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. The Lord will do what is good in his sight.”   2 Samuel 10:11-12 {NIV}

"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken." 

Psalm 55:22 {NIV}

"A new command I give you:  Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

John 13:34 {NIV}

We encourage you to pick up a Bible in a translation that speaks to your soul and attend a local church Sunday School or Bible Study (virtual if possible) to learn more about our Risen Savior and how He can help sustain you in these turbulent times.
