Handbook 2:
Administering the Church


15.6 Adapting to Local Needs

If distances, travel costs, communication resources, or leadership resources make the administration of stake programs challenging, the stake presidency may adapt the guidelines in this chapter. In doing so, they ensure that ward leaders receive the training they need.

General information about adapting Church callings and organizations is provided in chapter 17. Instructions that are specific to priesthood quorums and auxiliary organizations are provided in 8.16, 9.9, 10.11, 11.7, and 12.8.
