Growing Church membership on the Gold Coast
Under the direction of Elder Kevin W. Pearson, of the Pacific Area Presidency, and Area Seventy, Elder Keith Walker, members of the Gold Coast Australia Stake sustained Daniel Joseph Shine as their new stake president last weekend. President Shine from the Isle of Capri Ward will be assisted by his new counsellors Adam Smith (Mudgeeraba Ward) who has been called as 1st Counsellor, and Andrew Daley (Burleigh Ward) who has been called as 2nd Counsellor.
Growing Church membership on the Gold Coast made it necessary to create a second stake in the area in February 2012, resulting in the Gold Coast Stake, and the Coomera Stake.
The Gold Coast Stake consists of 6 Wards for Isle of Capri, Tallai, Mudgeeraba, Burleigh, Tweed Heads and Lismore.
