Have you spent years of your life immersed in technology? Have you ever considered using those skills to build the kingdom? Do you want to make a real difference in the lives of people throughout the world? Are you ready to join 83,000 missionaries who are called to ‘hasten the work’?

The blessings of technology need to be shared throughout the Church and around the world, and a technology mission is a great way to do it. We need people who are capable of implementing technology solutions and who can support and train the people who live in those areas. Some areas with current openings include Brazil, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Japan, and Korea.  They need you if:

  • You are ready to serve as a full time senior missionary
  • You are experienced with computers, printers, copiers, scanners, wired and wireless networks, the Internet, and audiovisual equipment
  • You love working with and teaching others
  • You can speak one of the languages needed
  • Solving problems is one of your favorite things

These senior missionary assignments are called area technology specialists (ATS) and they provide training and support to stake technology specialists (STS) throughout each mission. Follow the link http://tech.lds.org/mission to learn more.

And even if you aren’t ready to serve a mission, maybe you know someone with the right skills who is looking for an exciting missionary experience. We encourage you to let them know about this great opportunity to serve!
