Do you have programming or other information technology skills? Have you ever wondered how you could use those skills to build the kingdom? LDSTech makes it possible for you, regardless of your location, to consecrate your time and talents to technology projects that further the growth of the Church.
If you’ve never been involved in work like this, the second annual LDSTech Conference is a great way to start. Last year, about 150 people attended, including a few international participants. After a keynote address by Elder David A. Bednar, attendees learned about the many forward-looking initiatives currently in progress. Then they signed up for a project that matched their interests and skills and met with the project team. Attendees were even able to start work on the project right there at the conference.
This year’s conference is March 31 and April 1, right before April General Conference. Plan to bring your computer, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. There are almost 30 different projects that need help now. Like the saints who consecrated countless hours building the first temples brick by brick, now you too have an opportunity to build the kingdom—bit by bit.
