Stake Conference

  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 30522 Vía Con Dios Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, 92688 United States (map)

Stake conference is held twice a year under the direction of the President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. The stake president presides at these conferences, unless a general authority or area seventy is assigned to the conference. The stake president is responsible for organizing the conferences or assist in doing so under the direction of the general authority or area seventy as directed. The conferences are used to conduct stake business (primarily the appointment and sustaining of stake officers) and to disseminate counsel and guidance from the stake presidency. Speakers at stake conferences generally include the three members of the stake presidency and other stake members, called upon by the stake presidency, to speak on assigned topics. When a general authority or area seventy presides, he is the featured speaker.

The general session (for all members of the stake) is usually held on Sunday. This general session is held in the stake center, the general session may be divided into multiple sessions, by ward, so that all stake members may be accommodated in the building. A session for all adult members is generally held on the preceding Saturday evening. A priesthood leadership session is also held in conjunction with a stake conference.

This is an invitation to attend our semi-annual stake conference this weekend, Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, 2016. Our presiding authority will be Elder Carl B. Cook, a General Authority Seventy.
