Ushers & Nurses Auxiliary Mission & Objectives

PURPOSE STATEMENT:

To unite, develop educate and strengthen skills of those that have accepted the challenge of a person-to-person ministry within the church.  Full focus on the four pillars of church: Doctrine, Evangelism, Stewardship and Fellowship as a major part of ministry's purpose.

The Ushers and Nurses is comprised of Christian men and women who have been called to serve in their local churches as ushers (servants) nurses and health professionals.

The desire to have a Christ-centered Convention must result in auxiliaries that are Bible-based and Christ-centered in their programming.  The Ushers and Nurses Auxiliary seeks to fulfill this mandate by emphasizing Christ's desires for how we should conduct ourselves in our appointed roles in all of our study efforts.  Our members will learn more about Christ, His mission, His meaning and His message.

In order to be a Christ-centered and effective in their roles, Ushers and Nurses must first be Christians.  We should not only seek to know Christ, but we should seek to show Christ in our lives each and every day.  To this end, the Ushers' and Nurses' Auxiliary provides information on Christian salvation, encourages members to understand what salvation means so that they can witness about the goodness of Jesus Christ and carry out His "Great Commission" through ushering and health related programming.
