Being a greeter involves more than just standing at the door and shaking people's hands as they enter the church. It is a ministry. First Corinthians 12:28 refers to it as the ministry of helps. We help the Pastor fulfill the vision God has given him by making those who come through the doors of the church feel at home. Our responsibility is to help all who come to worship feel joy, sincerity, importance, peace and comfort when they enter the doors of the cathedral. Most of all, we help them feel welcomed.
The Word of God calls us an ambassador of the Most High God to His people. This means that we are His spokespersons in the Earth. This is essential to understand as a Greeter, because we are the first persons that visitors and members see when they enter the church doors.
As a Greeter, it is our responsibility to let visitors know that we greatly appreciate them fellowshipping with us. Because they are a guest of First Baptist Church, Berkley, we are committed to ensuring that they are served, that their needs and concerns are met, and that they feel the joy of the Lord upon entering our Worship Service.
