Twice a year the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints broadcasts a General Conference world wide from the Conference Center at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah. General Conference of the LDS Church is held in April and October, usually on the first Saturday and Sunday of the month. In these meetings the First Presidency, 12 Apostles, and other leaders of the LDS Church share inspirational messages to members throughout the world.

There are five, two hour sessions as follows:
    Saturday (All times are in Mountain Time)
  • 10:00 am General Session
  • 2:00 pm General Session
  • 6:00 pm Priesthood Session
    Sunday
  • 10:00 am General Session
  • 2:00 pm General Session
The Priesthood session is for all brethren who hold the Priesthood. Broadcasts of General Conference are transmitted over TV, radio, and satellite. Video feeds of the conference are hosted online at www.byu.tv. All messages presented during General Conferences are made available in audio, video, and written formats (in over 80 languages including American Sign Language) at the Broadcast Archives as well as in the subsequent issue (May and November) of the LDS Church’s Ensign magazine.

Don't miss these fun General Conference games to help keep children attentive while listening to General Conference and other LDS Church broadcasts.
