Seminaries and Institutes of Religion (S&I) has worked hard this past year to implement the training that we received in the June 2016 training broadcast. The 2016 broadcast introduced pivotal new priorities and programs that have refocused S&I instruction on the Savior and helped to strengthen student understanding of the gospel. Specifically, the focus on Doctrinal Mastery has helped our students gain a better understanding of doctrine, learn how to acquire spiritual knowledge, and build their faith.
The Global Education Initiative was also announced by Elder Kim B. Clark during last year’s broadcast. This initiative was created to make available the blessings of education, including religious education, to more people worldwide. We help to accomplish this goal as we focus more on teaching in the Savior's way and with the Spirit.
Speakers for this year’s broadcast will include Elder Donald L. Hallstrom of the Presidency of the Seventy; Elder Kim B. Clark, General Authority Seventy and Church Commissioner of Education; Chad H Webb, administrator, Seminaries and Institutes of Religion; Grant C. Anderson, associate administrator, Seminaries and Institutes of Religion; and Lori C. Newbold, director of training, Seminaries and Institutes of Religion.
Since a new priority will be announced during this year’s broadcast, please prepare adequately to receive that message by reading and studying the following talks:
- Donald L. Hallstrom, “I Am a Child of God,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2016, 26–28
