Toll-Free Referral Line

A 24-hour, toll-free telephone line has been established to assist Church members in the United States and Canada when making missionary referrals.

The toll-free number, 1-888-LDS-7700 (1-888-537-7700), is answered by missionaries at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, who contact by telephone the referred individual the same day the referral is made.

Callers are asked to provide the name and telephone number of the individual to be visited, as well as the caller’s name, telephone number, and home ward.

“When the member’s name is associated with the referral, the person is much more likely to invite the missionaries in,” explained Elder Earl C. Tingey of the Presidency of the Seventy and executive director of the Missionary Department. “A high percentage of these people are interested.”
