What Is General Conference?

Family Life

A family watching general conference on their television, one of many ways to enjoy general conference messages.

Each year during the first weekend of April and October, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints hold a worldwide conference called “general conference.” Over the span of two days, messages are shared on how to find peace, hope, and joy in Jesus Christ; how to strengthen families by following Jesus’s teachings; and how to receive personal guidance and inspiration from God. General conference is streamed and broadcast live in over 70 languages. All are invited to tune in—whether by TV, radio, or online!
