Is it possible to look up the name of a bishop in another stake? If so, how?

Discussions about the Directory Tool on lds.org. Questions about the Directory on the classic site should be posted in the LUWS forum.

I would like to contact my child's bishop, but he lives in another state, let alone another stake. Can I look up his name in the Directory?

No, in the Directory you can only see your own stake. But there are a couple of options:

  • Using the Maps application (maps.lds.org, or Sign In > Maps on LDS.org), you can find the assigned ward for the address where your child lives. Clicking on the name of that ward will pop up an information box; the Leadership button in that popup will give you a last name and phone number for the bishop.
  • Your bishop, ward clerk, or executive secretary might be willing to use CDOL to look up the bishop of that ward, if they consider your reason to be a valid use of information in CDOL.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
