Through conferences, conventions and other organizational sponsored programs, our members are able to exchange ideas and learn new ways to deal with problems, while also enhancing the role they play in helping their church's ministry.  It is our aim through the Silent Method of Ushering, to train our members on the techniques and attitude of ushering, so they may be of a greater service to their church and pastor.  This training is done with the hope that through their courteous service and Christ-like manner, new members shall be added to their church's roll.

On behalf of the nine states of our region, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas, we extend to you an invitation to join our region.
