Baptist ushers give the first impression of the church to visitors. The primary responsibility of an usher is to greet churchgoers as they arrive at the church and again at the worship service. They can also escort guests to their seats, if assistance is needed.

Bulletins are usually handed out by ushers at the doors of the church sanctuary. Church ushers also give assistance with information. The church offering is also the responsibility of ushers; they are responsible for ensuring all monies collected make it safely to the church treasury. Ushers should always be alert for any emergency that should arise so that they can provide prompt assistance.
