greeting at the door

This position is one of the most important jobs at TVC. You are one of the first people that our church family and guests encounter when they come into the church. If they don’t receive a favorable reception from you, their entire experience may be tainted. We don’t want anything to come between them and an encounter with God. Remember to always greet with a smile!

What to expect

  • Two ushers at the door

  • Stand just inside the auditorium by the wastebaskets.

    • This allows more room in the doorway to make it easier for people to get through​

    • If people stop to talk in the doorway kindly ask them if you can step inside the auditorium before continuing conversation.

  • If there is a handout that week please ask your lead usher on where to find them

    • While it is important to get the handout to them as our guests enter, the more important thing to do is make everyone feel welcome. If someone seems like they don’t want a handout, don’t force it upon them.​

Activity packets for kids

  • We have children’s activity packets available for the kids. Please feel free to hand those out to the kids when they come through. They are in the top pocket of the brochure holder by the door. However, be aware that some parents may not want their children to have them.

When Do I greet at the door?

  • Be at doors 20 minutes before services starts

  • Second Service crew will start working as the first services guests leave

when do we close the doors

  • Each week we will announce in the “huddle” when to shut the doors. It is normally around the time of the vision casting.


  • The ushers at the door will also be helping with the offering in the section that corresponds with their door. Please be ready with your buckets so you can go forward as soon as the ushers are called.

Know the Lay out of the building

  • It is important to be familiar with where everything is in the building (restrooms, children’s ministry, etc). If someone should ask you where something is, please walk them to that area rather than just verbally telling them where it is. If you are not comfortable doing this, find another usher or the head usher.
