Welcome To Public Affairs

Welcome to the wonderful world of Public Affairs. Though you won’t find the words Public Affairs in the scriptures, the principles of building good will and creating lasting friendships have been critically important to the Church from the beginning. The Church has public affairs directors in every corner of the globe. These seasoned men and women help priesthood leaders build the relationships with community, government, and faith leaders that allow us to pursue the mission of the Church. From working with government leaders for approvals on a new building, to fostering respectful interfaith dialog and answering questions from the media, public affairs forms a vital bridge between our congregations and the communities they call home.

Mormonism Online: In Your Own Words | 22 September 2014
In Your Own Words is a regular sampling of online articles, blog posts and social media that represent some of the current conversations about Mormonism.

The intent is to highlight social media content from individuals that will help journalists and the public better understand Mormonism.
