What do you like about Ward Conference?

Also, ward conference is a chance to sustain all the leaders, from the General Church leaders down to YM and YW presidencies. I like the feeling and symbolism of offering a sustaining vote for everyone in the ward (once a year!). I know that some people don’t enjoy that, but I kind of like it.

Is General Conference more important than stake and Ward conferences?

The instructions we receive in General Conference are often – well, general. In principle, stake and ward conferences should be more important for us since our stake leaders are entitled to receive revelation specifically for the stake. Mikesays: April 6, 2019 at 8:29 pm

Sustaining Officers

I wouldn’t go overboard on editing the Officers Sustained form. It has to be included in the Annual History. Updating the First Presidency and the Twelve is one thing, but I wouldn’t go any further than that. As others have indicated, the new forms will be out in MLS very soon.

When releasing members from Church positions, a priesthood leader interviews them , thanks them sincerely for their service, and explains that the time has come for their release. In sacrament meeting, the presiding or conducting officer announces releases from branch positions.

What is the purpose of a ward conference?

The purpose of ward conference is to give the ward members the opportunity of sustaining the bishop’s continued service. He serves by common consent, and the ward membership gets to decide whether to keep him or not for another year, if the stake president decides to present him.


What is the spiritual value of a ward and stake conference?

The spiritual value of ward and stake conference is minimal. I mean, if you like hearing people talk at you, knock yourself out. I haven’t found that stake leaders, the stake presidency included, have anything great to say that I don’t hear from anyone else. The corporate business style of the church today, even at the local level, is just a facade that has unfortunately become confused with substance. But people like being told what to do, and hearing from people they like following, so it makes sense.


What do stake presidency members teach?

In the second hour of ward conferences in our stake, the stake presidency members teach separate lessons/lead discussions with the combined YM/YW (taught by a counselor in the stake presidency, often with the stake YM and YW presidents), to the Relief Society, and to the combined Melchizedek priesthood holding men (led by another counselor in the stake presidency). In our stake, the stake president usually meets with the RS sisters (along with the Stake RS President), and that is a nice opportunity for open discussion about current issues, etc. that might not be raised in a typical Sunday RS lesson. One year, he led a discussion on abuse and recovery, for example. Another year he led a kind, loving, and thoughtful discussion about how to love and support those who are going through faith crises (and those who have left the faith). He did that in every ward in the stake. These tend to be free-wheeling, well-prepared, yet open discussions where much information is shared, experiences are shared, and there is laughter and even some tears.


What is the general primary board called?

The general primary board called the stake leaders.they raises and spent their own money. There was little if any control by priesthood leaders. During correlation the priesthood leaders were inserted into positions of control at every level. This made the vertical leadership structure of the auxiliaries obsolete.


What was the role of the priesthood leaders during correlation?

During correlation the priesthood leaders were inserted into positions of control at every level. This made the vertical leadership structure of the auxiliaries obsolete. The primary president works under the direction of the bishop while the stake primary president now has only an ancillary role if any. But they did not want to ruffle too many feathers and flat-out eliminate these obsolete structures. So they gave them meaningless busy work which gradually dwindled down to what little we have today. Ward conference is the last remnant of subjugation of once independent auxiliaries. We sustain the priesthood leaders to remind us who is in control and who is to be submissive. The fact it is such a farce indicates just how completely the priesthood took over all control of everything.


When we have ward conference in our stake, does the stake presidency meet with the bishopric?

Lastly, when we have ward conference in our stake, the stake presidency meets with the bishopric after the meeting, and the stake auxiliary leaders meet with their ward counterparts, for just a short time to catch up, to have questions answered, and to just connect. I like that opportunity.


What is the annual business meeting at a Presbyterian church?

At the Presbyterian church my family attends, there is an annual business meeting, that is basically a regular service but longer, where in addition to worship and a sermon, the pastor reviews the congregation’s budget and gives an overview of the church’s prior year and plans and goals for the upcoming year. They give out a pamphlet with some rough numbers (attendance, giving, expenditures, ministry and missions support). The congregation then also votes to approve new elders* and deacons** and the nominating committee for the next year. (Much like in the LDS church, I have never seen one of these votes be anything other than unanimous, so)
