This month’s LDSTech broadcast is a presentation on the opportunities and processes surrounding Church-service missionaries (CSMs). It provides a demo to help Stake Presidents and clerks better understand how to manage their CSMs. It also helps worthy young men and women whose circumstances prevent a proselyting mission to discover new avenues for service.

The broadcast covers the wide variety of volunteer opportunities as well as how volunteers—young, career-driven, and retired—can become Church-service missionaries for LDSTech. There are currently over 60 missionaries serving LDSTech-specific missions.

This broadcast is the perfect introduction for those wondering how to take the first step to become a Church-service missionary, a great reminder for missionary coordinators and stake presidents about the missionary management tools, and a review for general Church membership on just how much Church-service missionaries can do!

Elder Richard R. Langford held positions in store operations, accounting and finance, human resources and payroll, and information technology. The last 12 years of his career he served as senior vice president and chief information officer for Movie Gallery which, at the time of his retirement, was the 2nd largest video retailer in North America. He served as a young missionary in the New York New York City Spanish mission, and has served two full-time missions with his wife in the Utah Ogden Mission Office and the Utah Provo Mission office. He currently is serving with his wife in the Church Service Missionary department in Salt Lake City.
