Many members dream of someday serving a full-time mission after they retire. Many members don't know, however, that there is a new opportunity to serve as full-time technology missionaries. We currently have these opportunities for Spanish-speakers.
Area technology specialists (ATS) are needed in various locations around the world, but especially in the Dominican Republic and Guatemala. These Spanish-speaking ATS missionaries will be providing training and technical support to stake technology specialists (STS) in the areas. Applicants need to be fluent in both Spanish and English.
Husbands and wives can serve together as area technology specialists, or one spouse can serve as an ATS and the other can have another assignment based in the same location and/or area office.
ATS assignments may include supporting area leadership, facilities management groups, or missions with help for their technology needs. ATSs serve under the direction of the Area ICS (Information and Communication Services) Manager.
Required experience is not excessively technical but does include "skills with computers, printers, copiers, scanners, wired and wireless networks, the Internet, and audiovisual equipment" as the stated on the opportunities website (http://tech.lds.org/mission).
If you or someone you know has interest in this missionary service, please contact our ATS coordinators, Elder Gary and Sister Marilyn Peterson at
