    October 2019 General Conference

    First Presidency

    All members of the Church are invited to participate in the 189th Semiannual General Conference of the Church.

    The First Presidency, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and other General Authorities and General Officers of the Church will deliver messages of inspiration and guidance in five sessions:

    The general women’s session for sisters ages eight and older will be Saturday, October 5, at 6:00 p.m. mountain daylight time.

    The general sessions for individuals and families will be Saturday, October 5, and Sunday, October 6, at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

    Prepare for conference

    Conference provides an opportunity to receive personal revelation as living prophets give counsel and direction. Asking questions can help you prepare for conference, increasing personal revelation while you watch.

    Learning more about General Authorities and General Officers can help you prepare to receive their messages.

    Invite others

    Those of other faiths are welcome to participate in general conference. Members are encouraged to invite others in person or using social media.

    Live viewing options

    All sessions will be streamed live on the home page of ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Sessions are also available via the Church satellite system, Mormon Channel, radio, television, satellite, and other digital channels.

    Stake technology specialists

    For specific times, languages, and rebroadcast information, refer to the Church broadcast schedule when it becomes available a few weeks before the event.

    Tickets to live event

    Tickets are required to attend general conference sessions in the Conference Center. Most stakes in the U.S. and Canada receive an allotment of tickets to distribute, so members (ages 8 years old and up) who wish to attend in person should contact their local leaders. In addition, standby seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. This line forms about two hours before each session begins at the north gate on Temple Square.

    If you live outside the United States or Canada and plan to attend a general conference session, ask your stake or district president to submit a General Conference International Ticketing Request form on your behalf to the Conference Center Ticket Office. Beginning two months prior to general conference, tickets will be available until the allotment for each session runs out.

    Participate and share via social media

    To participate in general conference conversations on Twitter, use #GeneralConference or speakers' recommended hashtags, or simply retweet quotes, videos, and images posted at @LDSchurch. The Apostles’ Facebook pages are another way to see and share their messages.

    Post-conference availability

    General conference talks in text, audio, and video formats are provided in multiple channels for studying after conference, including the Gospel Library appYouTube, the general conference section of ChurchofJesusChrist.org, and Church magazines.
