White Fields Educational Foundation Seeks New Host for Mormon Expression Podcast

Salt Lake City, UT: In the podcast released on 9/1/2014, John explains his position with the ongoing recording of Mormon Expression. He stated that he believes in the project and the podcast, but his interests have moved on to other things beyond studying and discussing Mormonism.

Beginning in 2015, John will be moving on from hosting the Mormon Expression podcast and instead focus his time and attention on building the White Fields Educational Foundation. White Fields is dedicated to assisting individuals in creating healthy individual identity after leaving fundamentalist religions. White Fields is the parent company of Mormon Expression.

The Mormon Expression podcast will remain a key element of the White Fields portfolio. John will remain as the executive producer of the podcast and help to ensure the ongoing quality and integrity of the podcast as it moves forward.

Beginning in 2015, the Mormon Expression podcast will have a new host and anchor personality. White Fields, under the direction of John, has established a search committee to find the next host of Mormon Expression. Although this individual will bring their own perspective, personality and style to the host’s chair, the central mission of Mormon Expression will not change. The podcast will continue to be recorded live in Salt Lake City and released as a weekly podcast.

Those who are interested in assuming the hosting role or nominating other potential candidates can contact us at mail@whitefieldseducational.org. The new host will be expected to record live in Salt Lake City one evening a week and will commit to 40 weeks a year. The position is paid.

White Fields Educational Foundation Joins Forces with PostMormon.org

Salt Lake City, UT: White Fields Educational Foundation announced today that they have merged with PostMormon.org, a rapidly growing community of families and individuals who have voluntarily left Mormonism.

The merger will bring together two organizations that are dedicated to helping individuals with healthy religious transitions.

“By combining these two organizations we will be able to work together to better establish the local networks of Post Mormon communities by chartering and working with local leaders, give direction to world-wide communities, and to help with advertising and outreach,” John Larsen, Executive Director of White Fields Educational Foundation, said.

PostMormon.org will maintain its strong online presence and dedication to local support of people who are leaving or are considering leaving the Mormon church. Through the development of a safe and supportive community, PostMormon.org aids people struggling with a religious disruption.

“I’m very pleased to have joined forces with John Larsen and the White Fields team,” said Jeff Ricks, Director of PostMormon.org. “I feel the combination will enable our organizations to achieve much more working together than would otherwise be possible working separately.”

By combining resources, these organizations will be better equipped to provide training, legal and financial support, and materials to groups throughout the world.

“One of the difficulties in transitions from religion arises because religion dominates many aspects of our lives. Religious believers are often unaware of resources available outside their former faith. Sometimes, personal development in areas such as education, socialization, or quality of life have been stunted by the demands and structures of the faith,” Larsen said.

“White Fields is really about helping people who have left a fundamentalist religion make a smooth transition through counseling, education, and community. We don’t advocate any specific religion, but provide alternatives to people who are looking for ways to successfully negotiate a religious change,” he said.
