The Church is an enterprise

Settle down, trekies. Here’s a nice excerpt of the previously linked article I work at my church, over at the blog of our CIO Joel Dehlin. It might answer a few questions about why any of us work here, or why a church could need a group of over a dozen top notch, world class designers.

From his article:

Think about it, though. The LDS Church:
  • uses a global satellite system to broadcast general conference translated into hundreds of languages.
  • has web sites which service almost 5 millions users per month with over 40 million unique page views per month.
  • builds and services thousands of chapels and hundreds of temples all over the world.
  • has a large-scale welfare operation which manufacturers, packages, inventories, and distributes goods all over the world and which mobilizes massive relief operations in emergencies.
  • keeps track of, supports and distributes the Gospel message for over 12 million members.
  • has an employee base and mission-critical systems to support the varied Church functions: missionary and temple work, priesthood leadership, tax, finance, investments, printing, translation & distribution of content, collection of tithes, employee travel, human resources, and many more.

The LDS Church is huge, and for those that are members, we believe it will only get bigger. Being a part of this revolution of sorts here is an amazing thing to behold.

If you are LDS, have the design chops we’re looking for, and want to be part of this, please contact us.
