Auxiliary Training: Young Men

The world has low expectations of today's young men — but the Aaronic Priesthood inspires boys to do great things. Even more, "they have a duty to do great things," said Young Men General President David L. Beck during an April 1 leadership training session in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.

The training was the last of three such meetings Brother Beck directed with the assistance of his counselors, Larry M. Gibson and Adrian Ochoa. Earlier training sessions were held in the Alpine (Utah) Tabernacle, and the Bountiful (Utah) Regional Center.

Brother Beck asked the scores of local Young Men leaders gathered in the Tabernacle to consider the miraculous, transforming power of the Aaronic Priesthood.
