With the addition of two new buildings at the Provo MTC, the First Presidency has announced open house dates for the public to take tours of the new expansion.
The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced a public open house of the newly expanded Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo, Utah, July 31 through August 19, 2017, with additional tours available August 21-25 for registered BYU Education Week participants. Open house tickets will be available beginning Monday, July 10.
In October 2012, Church President Thomas S. Monson announced that men can serve at age 18 instead of 19, and women can serve at age 19 instead of 21. MTC expansion projects in Provo, Mexico, Ghana and the Philippines will allow the 15 MTCs around the world to continue to accommodate training of the growing missionary force.
