service opportunities for seniors


“We need you—we need you. We are grateful to you seniors for the lives you have led and the examples you have been in your homes, wards, and stakes.​ I now invite you to take your know-how, coupled with your time-honored testimonies, and go on a mission. I pray that the next time I sit down to assign senior couples, there will be hundreds of you waiting anxiously for your call.”

- Elder Ronald A. Rasband​, “How Great Shall Be You Joy”, General Conference​, October 2023


“If you and I have felt the stirrings to join the great adventure of living and sharing what our loving Heavenly Father prepared for us a long time ago, I assure you, today is the day to follow God’s Son and our Saviour on His path of service and discipleship.​ We could spend a lifetime waiting for that moment when everything lines up perfectly.​ But now is the time to commit fully to seeking God, ministering to others, and sharing our experience with others.”

- Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “Your Great Adventure”, Ensign, November 2019​
