New Bishopric

Postby colbyj-p40 » Sun Feb 21, 2010 12:21 pm

I am a stake clerk and we just re-organized a Bishopric this afternoon. I do not recall if there is a form or paperwork I need to complete and send to church HQs indicating that we completed the changes today and provide the names of the counselors, etc...

We completed the procedure for gaining approval from the First Presidency...I just do not recall or can find a form on MLS that may deal with notifying Church HQs that the change is complete.

appreciate any insight.
thanks.

Chances are the stake president was there, especially if it involved a new bishop which appears to be the case. He should be able to give you guidance on the matter.

You might also want to ask the stake clerk if all else fails, as he would have had to put the matter into MLS or CDOL as well.

On the stake MLS there is a Leader and Unit Change Request option that will let you submit the Bishop's change.
The councilors are just entered into the Ward MLS, which will send them up to CDOL

thanks, will relook at MLS as I missed seeing the option you mentioned above. I am the stake clerk, and yes the stake president was there. we were both just drawing a blank as to the notification process via MLS.

we reorganized another bishopric yesterday, I made the changes via the leader and unit change request to show the new Bishop, I did a send/receive.
Question: Is there anything else I need to do to properly notify Church HQs that th new Bishop is now in action? What needs to be done so he receives the certificate from the First Presidency?
thank you

Nope. As long as you did it from the Stake MLS computer, you have done all you need to do. CDOL will be updated, the new bishop will receive his certificate, and he will have access to all of the sites he needs to access, as long as he has an LDSAccount.

Personally, though, I would check CDOL on the 2nd day to make sure it actually updated.

In general you can check CDOL within an hour and see the changes there.

just checked CDOL and it has not updated. perhaps I did something incorrect. I do remember doing a send/receive after inputting the data. I'll double check.

One point I was forgetting with Bishops, is that currently they are reviewed by someone at CHQ before the change is made public, so an hour doesn't work on a Sunday or evening.

In this case it looks like you did it correct. It is waiting for review at CHQ. I'm not sure why it hasn't gotten past that, but I can see that the change is there.
