25-Nov-2018 Letter from LDS YM Presidency
Dear quorum presidencies and Young Men leaders,
We rejoice with you as we sustain our beloved prophet, President Russell M. Nelson, and move forward to strengthen gospel instruction in a home-centered and Church-supported environment. Recognizing that you will be guided by the Spirit as to adjustments for the coming year, we ask that you consider the following as you serve the young men of the Aaronic Priesthood:

  1. Remember the purposes of an Aaronic Priesthood quorum. Quorums are more than just classes on Sunday. “Quorums are to serve others, build unity and brotherhood, and instruct members in doctrines, principles and duties” (Handbook 2: Administering the Church [2010], 8.1.2).
  2. Use presidency meetings to plan the work of the quorum. With less frequent quorum meetings, effective planning of service, activities, and gospel instruction becomes even more important. Carefully consider how you will minister to and communicate with quorum members (see Handbook 2, 8.9.3).
  3. Work to strengthen relationships and build unity. Look for new ways to strengthen brotherhood and fellowship in the quorum outside of quorum meetings. Pay particular attention to young men who may not have strong support at home (see Handbook 2, 8.3.4).
  4. Keep quorum members informed about priesthood duties. In addition to quorum meetings, Aaronic Priesthood leaders will be given the opportunity in Sunday School classes to make brief announcements and follow up on assignments for the coming week. Be prepared to use the time well.

As we learn and grow together through this inspired direction, please let us know what you are learning and share your experiences.
Thank you for your devoted faith and service. We know you will be blessed as you reach out and touch the lives of each young Aaronic Priesthood brother. Together, we must prepare them in every way to follow the call of our prophet and join the Lord’s battalion.
