    Missionary Training Centers Churchwide

    Early Church missionaries received little training and were often sent to areas that reflected their national origin or that required language skills they already possessed. Much has changed in the past century and a half of missionary work. Today most missionaries spend at least three weeks in 1 of 15 missionary training centers located around the world, and missionaries who learn a new language spend eight weeks in the Missionary Training Center at Provo, Utah.
