Kimball said, "Every young man should fill a mission". Hinckley had suggested that a mission is not to be a rite of passage,  this cultural aspect remains.
Young men between the ages of 18 and 25 who meet standards of worthiness are strongly encouraged to consider a two-year, full-time proselytizing mission.
This expectation is based in part on the New Testament passage "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations" Matt. The minimum age had previously been age 19 in most countries until October 6,when Church President Thomas S. Monson announced that all male missionaries, regardless of nation, could serve from age However, the vast majority of missionaries serve the whole two-year men or eighteen-month women terms.
Women generally serve as missionaries for 18 months. Married retired couples, on the other hand, are encouraged to serve missions, but their length of service may vary from 6 to 36 months depending on their circumstances and means.
In the last two decades, the LDS Church has stepped up its call for senior couple missionaries. Standards of worthiness[ edit ] All missionaries must meet certain minimum standards of worthiness.
Among the standards that a prospective missionary must demonstrate adherence to are: Other exclusionary factors[ edit ] In addition to spiritual preparedness, church bishops are instructed to ensure that prospective missionaries are physically, mentally, and emotionally capable of full-time missionary work.
In the same speech where he called for "every young man" to fill a mission, Kimball added, "we realize that while all men definitely should, all men are not prepared to teach the gospel abroad.
Those excluded include those who would have to leave dependent children in the care of someone else; young couples who are still of childbearing age; those who are in debt and have not made arrangements to meet these obligations; those who are on legal probation or parole; couples with serious unresolved marital problems; those who are HIV-positive; and those who have been convicted of sexual abuse.
The mission call also informs the prospective missionary what language he or she will be expected to use during his or her mission. Members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are responsible for assigning missionaries to a particular mission.
Temple attendance[ edit ] Before beginning their mission, prospective male missionaries are usually ordained to the office of an elder in the Melchizedek Priesthood if they do not hold this office already.
Prospective missionaries also usually attend the temple for the first time to receive their endowment if they have not already done so. Newly called missionaries attend a short training period at one of 15 church Missionary Training Centers MTCs worldwide.
Missionaries who will not be learning a language in order to serve their missions spend three weeks at an MTC where they practice using proselytizing materials, learn expected conduct, and study the scriptures. Missionaries bound for foreign-language missions spend six to nine weeks at an MTC, depending on the language to be learned.
During this period, they are encouraged not to speak in their native tongue but rather to immerse themselves in the new language. Missionary conduct[ edit ] The Missionary Handbook[ edit ] The basic standards of missionary service and conduct are contained in the Missionary Handbook.
Mission presidents have discretion to adjust some of the standards according to local circumstances. For women, modest and professional dresses or blouses and mid-calf length skirts were worn.
In recent years,[ when? Young men are no longer required to wear dark suits, and they do not have to wear a full suit during regular everyday proselytizing activities.1 Introduction This handbook contains the basic standards and guiding principles for young Church-service missionaries (YCSMs): n You should dedicate this period of your life to serving others as a young Church-service missionary.
