Face to Face for Young Adults with Elder Quentin L. Cook

Married and single young adults and full-time missionaries are invited to join Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for a worldwide Face to Face event on September 9, 2018.

The event, broadcast live from Nauvoo, Illinois, will be transmitted live on the Church satellite system, LDS.org, and other media at 6:00 p.m. mountain daylight time.

Elder Cook, joined by Church historians Kate Holbrook and Matt Grow, will speak and answer questions about the Restoration and Church history from the new narrative history of the Church called Saints: The Story of the Church of Jesus Christ in the Latter Days.

According to an official letter announcing the event, “The goal of this event is to help young adults build their faith, increase their understanding of Church history, and strengthen their identity as sons and daughters of God in the context of the latter-day Restoration.”

How young adults can participate

  • Submit questions on YSAFace2Face.lds.org or by using #LDSface2face.

  • Join the live event by satellite broadcast or on LDS.org, YouTube, or Facebook on September 9, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.

  • Those who cannot join the event live can watch it at YSAFace2Face.lds.org any time after the event begins.


Priesthood leaders should encourage the young adults in their wards, stakes, and institute classes to gather and participate in this event (live where available and any time after the event). Each young adult should also be encouraged to bring a friend to the event. Full-time missionaries are invited to attend.

Where possible, priesthood leaders should coordinate with institute directors to encourage young adults to view the broadcast at an institute building. Where there is not an institute building nearby, priesthood leaders can arrange to show the event in a meetinghouse.

Stake technology specialists should refer to the broadcast schedule when it becomes available approximately two weeks before the event.
