Where would we be without information and the ability to communicate across vast distances? It’s always been important, but access to the wide range of materials available on the internet is vital in the twenty-first century. And yet most of us are at a loss as to how our computers work. The Information Technology department provides computer and telecommunication assistance to Pacific Union Conference employees, installing new equipment, updating software, and maintaining existing technology equipment to ensure that the Church’s mission can be fulfilled consistently each and every day.
