About the Book

If you stand at the doors of your church to let worshippers in and out or if you assist in keeping order and decency in the sanctuary, this book is for you. If you are interested in the characteristics and qualities necessary to be a doorkeeper or usher in your church, this book is for you. This book provides important information about being a doorkeeper, as outlined in the Word of God.

The focus of this book is on the spiritual characteristics of an effective doorkeeper. Some instructional rules are discussed, but this book uniquely connects the rules of courtesy with the responsibilities of a doorkeeper. The book also connects courtesy with the Word of God as stated in 1 Peter 3:8: “Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as bretheren, be pitiful, be courteous.”

Whether doorkeeper, pastor, leader, or layperson in the church, this book will provide insight into the role of those who stand at the door of the house of the Lord.
