October 2020 General Conference

General Conference

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invites everyone to participate in the 190th Semiannual General Conference October 3-4, 2020. This digital-only conference will be broadcast to the largest global audience to date.

As the world grapples with a global pandemic, economic hardship, social issues, political turmoil, and uncertainty, The First Presidency, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and other General Authorities and General Officers of the Church will focus on the Savior’s messages of love, understanding, acceptance, hope, connection, and inclusion. 

Of the conference, the First Presidency said, “We will focus on Him by elevating our use of the name He revealed for His restored Church. We will recognize major events of the ongoing Restoration to celebrate our history and future. We will become even more “converted unto the Lord” and invite all to come and find enduring joy on His covenant path.” 

The conference will consist of five sessions for individuals, families, and friends of the Church. A morning session at 10 a.m. and afternoon session at 2 p.m. will be broadcast on both Saturday, October 3, and Sunday, October 4 (mountain daylight time). In addition, there will be an evening session on Saturday, October 3, at 6 p.m. for all audiences.

Each session will be broadcast from a small auditorium on Temple Square. The First Presidency will preside and conduct those in-person sessions, and only those who have been invited to speak or pray will attend. The music for the conference has been prerecorded.

Prepare for Conference

Conference provides an opportunity to receive personal revelation as living prophets give counsel and direction. Asking questions can help you prepare for conference, increasing personal revelation while you watch.
