The Virginia State Baptist Ushers Union 

   1959 ~ 2019

              "Don't Grow Weary in Well Doing"   Galatians 6:9 

The Virginia State Baptist Ushers Union was organized on November 15, 1959
at the First Baptist Church in South Boston, Virginia.   Usher Unions of Hopewell, Petersburg, Richmond and South Boston are Charter Union Members.

 

Objectives include training ushers in the ushering ministry, providing educational assistance through scholarship funding and contribution to civic and charitable organizations.

 

Ushers across Virginia gather for a two-day annual convention, which includes a banquet and youth sponsored prayer breakfast. The convention is always on the third Saturday in September and workshops are held at the annual mid-session in March.

 

It is the aim of the Virginia State Baptist Ushers Union to reinforce the idea that the work of an usher is a ministry and not a job. We believe that there is strength in unity therefore, through the Virginia State Baptist Ushers Union, we hope strengthen our commitment in the ministry of ushering and improve our techniques as Ushers.
