Church service missionary calling?

Postby adoga » Sun Feb 28, 2016 9:58 am

Who inputs a Church service missionary calling into the system? is that the mission office?

I'd imagine that generally it would be the mission office or CHQ since the calling might be away from home. I'm not sure as wards or stakes would have that ability for the situation where the member is serving from their home.

The office or location where the Church service missionary is serving (for example, a Church department, a storehouse, a CES location, or a family history center) gives the service missionary access to any systems he or she may need, but they do not record the calling in the sense that it would show up in the LDS.org Directory or Leader and Clerk Resources. If the ward or stake would like the person to appear in their calling, they will need to create a custom calling in Leader and Clerk Resources and put the member in the calling themselves. It makes the most sense to me that this would be on the stake level, unless the missionary's service is in a specific ward, because in many cases the service missionary would report to the stake president as his "mission president" and it's the stake president who sets him apart. The same is true for temple workers (and to a certain extent, even full-time missionaries) – the local temple keeps a record for their purposes, but it doesn't show up anywhere that ward or stake members could see.
