Ward Relief Society Teacher

Jesus Christ is the Master Teacher. Members of the Church who are called and set apart as teachers receive a sacred trust and responsibility to follow His example and help God’s children build their faith in Heavenly Father and the Savior and become more like Them. Those called as teachers are to teach with the power and authority of God (see General Handbook: Serving in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, chapter 17).
