Understand that there are TWO processes in play here: First, you are called to help your presidency in their ministering efforts, and second, because of this calling, you are also granted online access to the parts of LCR (Leader Clerk Resources on LDS.org under your login) that allow you to use the online ministering applications.1) Your calling as a ministering secretary.
If you have been called, then your presidency / bishopric have discussed the need for "additional help" with the duties of ministering administration in the presidency, and have extended the call to you for that position.
Note that these callings that used to assist with home / visiting teaching coordination have now been discontinued, (some of them are no longer necessary.)
10. What is the role of ministering coordinators and supervisors?
The callings of ministering coordinator and ministering supervisor have been discontinued. Those who have been called to these positions should be released.
So, you asist your presidency in effective ministering. The ministering website
will help you and your ward leaders do this effectively as you ponder and pray for guidance. Which brings us to part two. Once your presidency has agreed to what parts of ministering they themselves will accomplish and which parts you, and the presidency's secretary will help them accomplish, we move to part number two. 2) Granting you online access to the parts of the LCR (Leader and clerk resources) because of your calling as a ministering secretary.
That's where LDS Tech can help you. Bring us your questions about how to use the LCR applications to assist in all aspects of ministering!
