Mission Call Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Mission Call?

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are encouraged to serve a mission for 18 to 24 months, helping others come unto Christ and serving as Jesus would!

Prospective missionaries don't choose where they will serve. They send their "papers" to Church headquarters in Salt Lake City. There, an apostle of the Lord recieves revelation on where the missionary is needed.

The waiting youth then recieves their "Mission Call," an official letter notifying them where they have been called to serve, when they will depart and what language they will preach in. The opening of a mission call is a special moment.

What is the Mission Call App?

The Mission Call App was created to help new missionaries celebrate the moment of opening their call. Before the big moment, they can create a guessing game, send out the link, and have their friends and family guess where they might serve!

There are hundreds of missions of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Use Explore Mode to check them out! Simulate the excitment of getting a mission call with the "Call Me on a Mission" button!

The Mission Call app was created by Wesley and Gary at MangumLabs.
