LDS Church Callings

"So does Bishop Taylor already have a calling in mind for me? Tell him I would rule at Ward Missionary, especially if Detrick was my companion. We would teach at least 150 lessons a week. I sure was blessed to have the bishops that I did while I was getting ready for my mission. Bishop Taylor is a good man, I really look up to him and I know he is making the BC3 a better ward."

Service in the LDS Church is voluntary. Members do not receive wages or other compensation for their time. Presidency Leaders have the authority to "call" members to serve in positions under their direction, and do so after prayerful study of those being considered. In the LDS Church a "calling" is a position or assignment in which members have been asked to serve or perform.

Generally members serve in their callings for a few years. Once their time of service is complete they are released from their calling (by the responsible authority) and new members are called in their place.

Some callings of the LDS Church in local congregations include:

Bishopric (includes Bishop, and two Counselors)
Elder's Quorum Presidency
Relief Society Presidency
Sunday School Presidency
Single Adult Representative
Young Men's Presidency
Young Women's Presidency
Primary Presidency
High Priest Group Leader
Teacher Development
Music Chairperson
Ward Clerk
Executive Secretary
Membership Clerk
Finance Clerk
Ward Mission Leader
Ward Missionaries
Ward Librarian
Ward Bulletin Editor

There are many other callings including LOTS of teachers in all of the organizations.
