Area Seventies

Area Seventies are Church leaders called by the First Presidency to be “especial1 witnesses” and to assist the Twelve in “building up the church and regulating all the affairs” and “preaching and administering the gospel” in their assigned areas (Doctrine and Covenants 107:25, 34, 38). They act under the keys and direction of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

Area Seventies are called and set apart to serve in specific geographical areas but may also be assigned to serve in other areas as needed. They are not called to full-time service and typically serve for five years. Their duties include meeting and counseling with local Church leaders to help them fulfill their responsibilities. Each Area Seventy also belongs to a Quorum of the Seventy. There are currently Twelve Quorums of the Seventy. More Quorums of the Seventy may be added as the Church grows (see Doctrine and Covenants 107:93–96).

Though all Seventies have equal authority, some are designated as General Authorities and others are designated as Area Seventies.
