Calling - Truth in Love Ministry

Dictionary of Mormonese


A common expression for a specific task to which LDS members are assigned by their bishop. Since Mormonism teaches that the bishop receives direction from God, it is difficult for members to turn down these callings. Most active members serve in a specific calling (i.e. primary teacher, quorum president). 

Only the apostles and president of the church receive lifelong callings.
