6 New General Authority Seventies Announced During Conference, Learn More About Them

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the calls of six General Authority Seventies and 36 Area Seventies. President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, second counselor in the First Presidency, made the announcements during the Saturday afternoon session of the April 2017 general conference.

General Authority Seventies serve in the Presidency of the Seventy, in area presidencies, and in other headquarters administrative functions. Under the direction of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, they travel frequently to meet with and teach Church leaders, missionaries and members of the Church in local congregations. They have authority to serve anywhere in the world, while Area Seventies’ authority is generally limited to the area where they serve.
