Church Announces New Education Initiative to Help Saints Around the World

A new global initiative in the Church Educational System will bring education to Church members around the world “in the Lord’s way,” announced Elder Kim B. Clark, General Authority Seventy and Commissioner of Church Education, during the 2016 Seminaries and Institutes Annual Training Broadcast held in the Conference Center Little Theater on June 14.

“The Lord is moving with great power in the earth to make education available to many more of His children, and to strengthen learning and teaching of all kinds in His kingdom,” he said. “We are on a path into the future that will take us into new spiritual and educational terrain. The Lord is inviting us to do new things. He is directing us to change the way we work, to do better and be better than ever before.” . . .

With a desire to “reach out much more broadly across the Church to offer many more members the kinds of educational opportunities” available through the Church Educational System, Elder Clark spoke of the discussions the executive committee of the Board of Education for the Church has had over the past few months.

Beginning last fall, the group discussed ways to provide opportunities for education to members of the Church, wherever the Church is organized. From these discussions has come a new initiative — the CES Global Education Initiative.
