Seeking New Member Conversion Stories

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: November 18, 2022. Please don't wait. Submit as soon as possible!

OVERVIEW: By featuring new members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we hope to convey a compelling, welcoming, and inclusive message. These videos will be shown online with the aim of inspiring people to feel the joy of the gospel and sign up to meet with missionaries.

SUBMISSIONS: Please submit your conversion story!

If you know someone who has a great conversion story and would be willing to share it, please forward this website to them and encourage them to apply!

TO APPLY

STEP 1: CURRENT PHOTO

Take a current photo: a headshot facing the camera from about chest, upward. Use good lighting: usually naturally diffused daylight is best (near a window, for example).

STEP 2: RECORD YOUR STORY

Please share your conversion story in about 3 minutes or less. Just look at the camera and talk to us like you would speak to a friend.

  1. This can be recorded on a smart phone or similar device. We recommend attaching it to a solid surface or tripod.
  2. Please sit close enough to camera to see your face clearly (from about your chest, upward).
  3. Begin by introducing yourself. State your full name and city where you live.
  4. Tell us your conversion story!
  5. Check the sound. Make sure it is clear enough to hear without having to turn up the speakers.
  6. Upload your video to an online video sharing site like YouTube or Vimeo.
  7. Copy the “Share” URL address to enter into the application form.

IMPORTANT: Set the privacy settings to "Unlisted" (not “Private”) so we will be able to view it without a password. With this security setting, only those with the URL address will be able to access your video. It will not be public.
