Membership history

Utah LDS membership
Utah LDS membership

Though membership in Utah has increased, the percentage of Utahns who are Latter-day Saints has declined. Much of this is due to the rapid growth of the state. In 2008, the US Census Bureau determined Utah to be the fastest growing state in the country in terms of population growth.[2]

Missions

Due to nonmembers coming into the state, Utah officially became a mission field with its own headquarters in 1975 when the Utah Salt Lake City Mission was organized. Previously, full-time missionaries worked in parts of Utah under the leadership of missions headquartered in other states.

Utah currently has 12 missions and a Missionary Training Center.

Announced by Russell M. Nelson on April 7, 2019,[22] with name and location change announced January 19, 2021.[23] The Deseret Peak Utah Temple will be located on the corner of 2400 North 400 West in Tooele.[24] The relocated temple plans are expected to follow the same design as previously announced, with three stories and about 70,000 square feet. A 20,000-square-foot meetinghouse will be built adjacent to the temple. The temple was originally announced as the "Tooele Valley Utah Temple" and was to be located in Erda, at the intersection of Erda Way and State Route 36. The change came after community pressure to not include some of the other intended residential development, and locals threatened a referendum to alter the area's zoning.[25][26]
