Technology and Conference Messages: How will you change? PDF Print E-mail

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, concluded the 185th General Conference with a stirring call to action. He said: “The question for each of us is: because of what I have heard or felt during this conference, how will I change?” Elder Nelson enumerated many technology resources provided by the Church that help with parenting, keeping the Sabbath, and strengthening family ties.

Resources furnished by the Church are meaningful only if members use them to teach, learn, serve, and live the gospel better each day. As you reflect on your own conference experience, how will you use LDS.org, FamilySearch.org, Mormon.org, Bible Videos, the Media Library, Church magazines, and other technology tools to set or re-align priorities for yourself and your family in the coming months?

As you ponder, recall how on Sunday morning, Elder Jose A. Teixeira of the Seventy also referenced how immersed our lives are in technology.

QuestionJim_Adams

What do you do at the Church?

Answer

As a member of the Information and Communications Systems department (ICS) Mobile Device Team, I help coordinate cellular communications for Church headquarters. That includes ordering cell phones and mobile broadband data cards for laptops, helping employees with an array of phone issues, and generally safeguarding the Church’s investment in this popular business tool.

Question

What role do you think the Mobile Device Team plays in the Church organization?

Answer

We try to make the employees’ mobile device experience as smooth and trouble-free as possible. For example, a lost, damaged, or stolen cell phone can represent a minor tragedy in the life of a citizen of the 21st century! We resolve problems as painlessly as possible by having a small stock of lightly-used surplus devices available for immediate replacement. This minimizes “phoneless” down-time. Without this service, hundreds of dollars would be spent on each replacement phone, so we feel we save the Church significant dollars as we help maximize employee productivity.
