Doorkeeper, an Honor and Privilege

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

This week I am scheduled to volunteer for our yearly conference called Heritage. Pentecostals from all over the United States will participate in this four-day event at Hotel Elegante. We are expressive in worship and follow the teaching of the Bible.

A couple thousand are anticipated to attend, and as far as I know, the hotel is nearly sold out on rooms.

My role will entail providing security and service as an usher and I will need to stay sharp and professional.

I am a doorkeeper. It is an honor and a privilege not taken lightly.

This is what the Bible has to say about the matter.

For a day in thy courts Is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Psalm 84:10 KJV

I have been an usher for over 10 years and in these changing times, it is ever necessary to have those on the alert to keep order.

Fortunately for me, my supervisor is supportive of volunteer work and has permitted me to use vacation time during the busy Summer months.

Well, that is all for this post. If you are interested in listening to our services on Sunday you can do so at https://www.csfpc.com/listen.

    Do some church members get a bit carried away and unruly and need bringing into line?….
