The 190th Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
On April 4th and 5th, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will come together to hear guidance and inspiration from church leaders. In October, President Russell M. Nelson promised this conference “will be different from any previous conference.” With the spread of COVID-19, President Nelson’s words are now truly prophetic, as the church announced that the upcoming conference would be distributed through “technology only.”
The KSL NewsRadio staff has been working for months to help make the upcoming conference “unforgettable,” and we hope you’ll spend your weekend with us. We will carry all five sessions live on 102.7 FM and 1160 AM or via the KSL NewsRadio app. In addition, we have more than seven hours of special content airing before, after and in between sessions. Scroll down to see the full conference schedule with descriptions.
