The new Presidency of the Church

February 4, 2008 at 12:45 pm (Christianity)

At around 11 am Mountain Standard Time (12 pm Central Standard Time), The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the new First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

  • President THOMAS S. MONSON, President
  • President HENRY B. EYRING, First Counselor
  • President DIETER F. UCHTDORF, Second Counselor
  • President BOYD K. PACKER is the new President of the Quorum of the Twelve. He was Acting President of the Quorum throughout the presidency of President Gordon B. Hinckley while President Thomas S. Monson, the actual president of the Quorum, was in the First Presidency. So this is not a new responsibility for him.

    President Henry B. Eyring was the Second Counselor in the First Presidency in the last months of President Gordon B. Hinckley’s presidency.
