Mission Statement

From the Desk of Mattie Gardette

For these are the days that we must give our full being unto the Lord. As we, the united group of the Southern "Mother" District Ushers rededicate our lives to this ministry of Ushering, let us pledge to continue the work of the Union Usher Board of Southern District, Inc How grateful we are for the many joys that have been shared with this our "Usher Family". Just take a moment and think of the pioneers who had the foresight to bring ushers together, not only in this city, but throughout our nation as one interdenominational group of church ushers and nurses. This time in the history of this dynamic organization is an earned time of celebration. The plight to establish the Ushers Center as a monumental sight for all ushers was realized and now it stands as a focal point for many ushers' activities. We pay tribute to those that have gone before us and honor them as we build on their solid foundation of love and dedication. Our Juniors and Youth need our encouragement and most especially our time. Let us continue our work on their behalf. We, in the Southern District, have an advantage with a number of donated computers to assist our young people in furthering their skills and knowledge and to increase their chances of achieving their educational goals. My deepest expression of gratitude to all the dynamic officers and members of the Southern “Mother” District for your loyal, dedicated service and support. May we continue our work in this Ushers Ministry and enhance our lives to advance our Lord and Savior “Jesus Christ”.
