Home Ministering Interviews

Postby billydewaal » Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:59 pm

There’s been a lot of questions around what is a “Leader” in connection with Home Ministering Interviews. Who are the brethren wanting to do the interviews? Just the Elders Quorum and Relief Society Presidencies or are Home Ministering Coordinators encouraged to help with those interviews as well?

I believe a "Leader" is an elders quorum president or one of his counselors, or a Relief Society president or one of her counselors. I have always believed this, but the closest "official" reference I can find comes from the Enclosure to the First Presidency letter dated April 2, 2018, item 21, which begins:
Elders quorum and Relief Society presidencies keep a record of the interviews they hold with ministering brothers and sisters. Leaders indicate the month interviews are held and who participated in them.

It would follow that if the interview was not with a member of the presidency, it would not be recorded.

The First Presidency Letter and these instructions are available online at ministering.lds.org under Frequently Asked Questions.
