    International Management

    My name is Jason Hoertling, I work here at the Church of Scientology International Dissemination & Distribution Center. I’m a project manager that is involved in establishing new facilities, setting up new production lines for the expansion of the Church, really.

    So Mr. Miscavige had a vision and created a strategy to create and establish a central dissemination facility for the Church of Scientology and everything required by church organizations around the world. Everything from our highest level churches, all the way down to individual parishioners and practitioners of Scientology out in their community. And also a central hub to provide all materials for all of our global humanitarian campaigns. Everything from our Youth for Human Rights campaign to our Anti-Drug campaign and everything else that we sponsor and support.

    When we started this and when Mr. Miscavige first set this vision and strategy, we were bluntly told by many professionals in the field that we were destined to fail. That there was just absolutely no way that from our level of knowledge, from the personnel that were available to us inside the Church and, you know, what the requirements were to establish a printing facility that it was possible. It was just, bluntly, you’re going to fail. And that was even from some of the people we had worked with closely for several years. But through his direction, through, you know, the research that we did and through the application of Mr. Hubbard’s technologies, primarily his technologies on organizing and on Study Technology, we were able to put a facility here that’s, that’s really unprecedented anywhere else in the world.

    So we worked very closely with Mr. Miscavige for months to a year, working out really what the capacities of the facility needed to be, and then down to the level of detail of, you know, what kinds of equipment we required, the capabilities of those pieces of equipment, the templates for the materials that we were going to produce and really working through, front to back and top to bottom every detail, which he was intimately involved in.

    And while others are revolutionizing travel, communication, exploration, what Mr. Miscavige is driving forward is the betterment of mankind. And that is uniquely his purpose and it’s a purpose that he imbues in everyone that he works with.

    So I would say that in addition to being one of the most driven and purposeful individuals around, that Mr. Miscavige is a uniquely caring individual. He, he will come through, he will talk to all of the staff, he knows them by name, he will ask them how they’re doing, he will ask them about their families, he will, you know, he will ask, he’s asked me, you know, he’s a very caring person and, and I would say, you know, here’s an interesting, you know, here’s an example.

    Mr. Miscavige one time… when we went to the, the Grand Opening of the Church of Scientology in Sacramento, I’m from Sacramento and Mr. Miscavige knew that I was from Sacramento, and he asked if my parents were in attendance at the, the, the Grand Opening and spent ten, fifteen minutes speaking with them, you know, he sought them out, he wanted to find out how they were doing. He, you know, he congratulated them on, on raising a good kid, you know. As, as, as funny as that is, I would say it shows a unique example of, of how caring Mr. Miscavige is as… a top level leader and visionary and yet uniquely confrontable, approachable and caring as an individual person.
