Church Missionary Department Says It Needs 50 Percent More Senior Missionaries

According to David Williams, global operations manager for the Church-service missionary program office, the demand for senior missionaries is about 50 percent more than the 6,300 senior missionaries currently serving.

“You are needed,” was the LDS Missionary Department’s message to senior Church members at BYU Education Week on August 22.

“In the history of the world, there hasn’t been more of a need where the times cry out for missionaries as they do now, especially mature people in the gospel such as yourselves, who live the gospel, … know how to navigate this world, and know how to bring the blessing of the gospel to the hearts of the people that you talk to,” said Chris Miller, pre-field services group manager for the Missionary Department.
