Website Name: Missionary Online Recommendation System (MORS)
Web Address: missionaryrecommendations.churchofjesuschrist.org
How to Login: Use your Church Account
Permission: Access granted by your bishop
While mission application form can theoretically be filled out offline with the physical paper forms, in most parts of the world, young people, bishops, and stake leaders complete the mission papers online. The Church calls this online application website the Missionary Online Recommendation System (MORS) and it can be accessed directly or through the Missionary Portal. The online process is similar to the offline process in most respects except that the information is put in the internet-based system for submitting the information to the Church.
First, Get a Church Account
In order to log in and get started with the online mission application, a prospective missionary needs to have a Church Account. A Church Account is the username and password you use to access personalized tools on ChurchOfJesusChrist.org such as your ward and stake calendar and directory. If you don’t have one, go here to register for an Church Account. You will need to know your membership number, which you can get from your ward clerk, to complete the process of getting an account.
Second, Your Bishop Will Enable MORS When You Are Ready to Apply
When you are ready to begin the application portion of the process of getting your mission call, talk to your bishop and he will enable you to access the MORS. If your bishop hasn’t granted you access, you will not be able to get in. Once you’re in the MORS application website, you’ll be able to fill in all the forms electronically. The MORS application is quite lengthy and will likely require several hours over the course of several days or weeks to fill it out completely. For more detailed information on the application sections and the information you will be filling out, see this article on the mission paperwork details, including screenshots to help you know what to expect.
After you finished the application, you will submit it and it will then go to your bishop and stake president where they also fill in parts of the application form through a Church website. Ultimately, after your final interview with your bishop and then stake president, the stake will send your mission application to Church headquarters. You will then continue to use the Missionary Portal to view your mission call letter, send in your acceptance letter, and get the information you need to be prepared to leave on your mission.
Good luck. Let me know if you have any questions. And God bless you in your mission preparation.
