Callings that require temple recomends

Postby MLWortman » Wed Feb 21, 2018 9:45 am

Is there any guidelines on callings that require temple recommends and keeping them current to continue to serve in the calling?

If they had temple recommends when called then let them expire,can they continue in their calling. If they can't renew or don't want to for some reason and they are not ward callings what need to be done.

Some callings require that a member be worthy of a recommend. They do not necessarily have to actually hold a recommend. They just have to be worthy of one.

If a person was called to such a calling and then let the recommend expire, the priesthood leader would determine if the person was still worthy, and then proceed accordingly. The bishop would make that determination for a ward calling.

The bishop would advise the stake president in the case of a stake calling, and then the stake president would determine whether the person would continue in the stake calling.

Just because a recommend expires does not automatically mean a person has to be released from a calling. Bishops and stake presidents hold the keys to make those worthiness decisions.
