General Conference April 2019 Sessions


No, this post isn’t about the LDS / Mormon General Conference to be held 6-7 April 2019 in Salt Lake City UT. This is about the Restoration General Conference to be held 19-21 April 2019 in Grand Junction CO. I know it’s a bit confusing to call it General Conference, but that’s how it is labeled when it gets into the archives. Perhaps it should be called the Temple Conference since that is the theme. This is about the Saturday breakout sessions.

I spent a couple of days earlier this week going over all the material being referenced for the 32 breakout sessions on Saturday. I know I had read or watched or listened to all of them previously but I was uplifted and edified as I went over them once again. It is truly amazing to realize how much we have received in the past few years. In my case, I feel like I’ve been playing catch-up in my studies, having only been introduced in 2012.

Restoration Archives

I want to especially commend whoever has been creating and releasing the podcasts each week. They are wonderful. Some people learn best by reading, others by hearing and others by viewing. You can do all three with much of the material in the archives. I listen to the podcasts on the drive to and from work. Doesn’t matter that I’ve heard some of the material in previous talks or lectures. I always learn something new as I ponder.

Below is the list of the topics being covered in the sessions. I highly recommend going to the site and clicking on the links associated with each one. You will find a wealth of material filled with revelation for our day. There is so much that has been clarified, at least for me, as I have studied this material over the past seven years. I especially appreciate the talks or lectures prepared for each of the recent General Conferences.

Sessions Recorded, Sunday Live-Streamed

I’ve also included the links here (below) to save a few clicks. Just a quick perusal reveals a wide variety of topics. Not sure how long each session is. Assuming one hour each, you would only be able to get to a third of the sessions on Saturday. Maybe they will only be a half hour each. As soon as the organizers release that detail I’ll update this post. As noted previously, Denver is the invited speaker for the Sunday session. Looking forward to it.

Several people have asked if the conference will be broadcast. My understanding is that yes, the Sunday session will be live-streamed and that some of the Saturday breakout sessions may be recorded, but not live-streamed. If that changes, it will be noted on the conference site. Anybody who has put on a weekend conference before knows what a lot of work this is. There are over 500 people RSVP’d so far. The venue will hold up to 1,000.
