You may be a young or young-at-heart tech expert who is worthy to serve a proselyting mission but cannot. You could also 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. Please complete the LDSTech Profile to let LDSTech know of your interest in serving a mission.

Locations

Some opportunities allow candidates to work remotely. Check the opportunity description to determine if it can be worked on remotely or if it must be worked on in the Riverton Office Building.

Time commitments

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. Senior couples with varying technical skills are especially welcome. Many times one person may serve in one role on a project (for example, project leader) while the spouse serves in another role (for example, tester).

Language requirements

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.

Note: To submit your Church-service mission application please ask your stake president for a copy and scan and email to Sister Noni Boyle (boylene@ldschurch.org) and the form will be forwarded to the Church Service Missionary Office. You may also fax it to 801-353-4350, with a cover letter to Sister Boyle. Sister Boyle will alert you when your call has been issued.


Backlogs

If you've inquired about a mission or already submitted your papers and haven't heard back from LDSTech yet, please be patient. As we work to manage the numerous inquiries for LDSTech Church-service missions, we have found more interest than we have current opportunities for. This has been a pleasant surprise. More opportunities are being created on a regular basis. We will continue to do our best to match current opportunities with those who have matching skills and availability.

Most importantly, if you feel prompted to serve, don’t wait for us -– reach out and remind us of your desire to serve. When you do, please include a brief description of your availability and technical experience and skills. Many opportunities require service to be done at the Riverton, UT office building. If you have strong interest in one of the following opportunities, please let one of us know.

  • Testers
  • Software Developers
  • Interaction Designers
  • Writers
  • Project Managers
  • Business Analysts

If you are not able to serve at the Riverton Office Building, but are still interested in an LDSTech Church-service mission, please be patient with us as we try to find more opportunities to serve from home. These opportunities will grow over time and we are excited about the growth.
