LDSTech Church-Service Missionaries

Definition

LDSTech Church-service missions are ideal for worthy people who work or have worked in the IT industry. You may be a young or young-at-heart tech expert who is worthy to serve a proselyting mission but cannot. You may be a couple that is retired or on a leave of absence and looking for an opportunity to serve a mission. This could be an ideal place to serve.
  • Time Commitment - Time commitments can be 6, 12, or 18 months. At the end of the term of service, you can extend the missionary commitment to continue serving.
  • Skills - The skills required to serve an LDSTech mission vary based on the opportunity. See the opportunity descriptions for each advertised position. Most positions require volunteers with training and experience who are prepared to contribute to the projects from the outset. Many positions require prior work experience. Senior couples with varying technical skills are especially welcome. Many times one person may serve in technical role on a project while the spouse serves in another role, for example customer or administrator support.
  • Language Requirement - At this time, an LDSTech mission requires the ability to speak English. We also now have opportunities for those who speak other languages along with English to help with special projects.

Application Process

Please complete the LDSTech Profile to let LDSTech know of your interest in serving a mission. When you fill out this form, LDSTech can help you through the mission process. If you have questions about an LDSTech mission, please send an email to ldstech-mission@ldschurch.org. If you prove to be a good fit for one of these positions, you will then complete the Church-service missionary application process. This process is described on the Church-Service Missionaries page on LDS.org. In summary, the application process is as follows:
  1. First, you complete the Recommendation Form for Church-service Missionaries.
  2. Upon receiving the completed recommendation forms, the bishop certifies your worthiness and concurs with the selected choice for service. He then signs the form and forwards it to the stake president.
  3. The stake president interviews you for worthiness, signs the recommendation form, and forwards it to the Church Service Missionary Office at Church headquarters for authorization to extend the call. (See Note below)
  4. The Stake President will receive your call letter and will extend the call to you. The stake president authorizes the bishop to set the new missionary apart.
  5. Church-service missionaries should then contact the operation where they will be serving. They are supervised and trained under the direction of the operation in which they serve. The stake president and bishop remain the ecclesiastical leaders for the member.
