The Modern Ministry


The Savior Jesus Christ, during His earthly ministry, commissioned His Apostles to preach the gospel “into all the world” (see Matthew 7:29; 24:14; Mark 14:23; 16:15; Romans 10:18).

Similarly, since the early days of the Restoration, the Lord has instructed His prophets and apostles to bear testimony of Him “unto all the world” (see Doctrine and Covenants 114:1). In D&C 107:22-23 we read:

“Of the Melchizedek Priesthood, three Presiding High Priests, chosen by the body, appointed and ordained to that office, and upheld by the confidence, faith, and prayer of the church, form a quorum of the Presidency of the Church.

“The twelve traveling councilors are called to be the Twelve Apostles, or special witnesses of the name of Christ in all the world—thus differing from other officers in the church in the duties of their calling.”

The "Unto All the World" section of Prophets and Apostles Speak Today regularly reports on the assignments fulfilled by the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles throughout the world. Here is a list of recently published articles:
