Ministering with Leader and Clerk Resources 

You might be surprised to learn that priesthood and auxiliary leaders, clerks, and secretaries do not need to travel to the meetinghouse to perform administrative tasks in the Member Leadership Support (MLS) software on the clerk’s computer. Instead, they can use the Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) tool anywhere the Internet is available. This leaves more time for leaders to minister to members while having the information to do so close at hand.

Streaming Church Media - Part 1

Many members stream LDS content to their mobile devices, laptops, and computers, but are at a loss when asked to use audio-visual equipment at Church or select add-on hardware to bring Church media to their HDTVs.  If you need help, this begins a two-part article on media streaming.  The first part will cover basic streaming options at home and in meetinghouses, and the second will focus on add-on products for Internet TV and how well they perform the LDS media.

Streaming Church Media - Part 2

The Church has a keen interest in making the content on its websites, broadcast channels, and mobile platforms widely available in as many languages as possible. If you have a smart TV with a built in web browser, you need only connect the TV to your network and browse Church media. If not, you are a good candidate for an add-on product. There are a number of such devices; some are better or worse for streaming LDS media.
This article explores the more popular Internet TVs and how well they deliver LDS content.

Really, a lot is packed into this portable new interface. Scott Barrick, General Manager for the Tabernacle Choir, shared this: “The Mormon Tabernacle Choir app will ensure the Choir’s music, latest news, blog, events, concerts, ticketing, and tour information are all in one place, readily available.”
