Our Stake

A Stake in Saskatchewan has existed since November 1978 with the Stake office located in Regina. Noel W Burt was the first Stake President with Raymond Clayton and Lawrence Penner as his counselors. In October 2001, Elder Russell M. Nelson visited and reorganized the stake to form the Regina Saskatchewan Stake and the Saskatoon Saskatchewan Stake and called a new Stake President here in Saskatoon, Eric Slocombe. Along with his counsellors, Milton Derry and Blaine Jensen, they were in operation over the next 9 years. Our current Stake President, Kevin Ledding, was called in August 2019 and is at the helm with his current counsellors, Eric Michael and Kirt Prete. Our Patriarch is John G Spencer.

We have had the privilege of experiencing many dignitaries in person, interestingly enough all Apostles now. Dieter F Uchtdorf, Quentin L Cook, Dale G Renlund, D. Todd Christofferson. We were part of the Saskatchewan Stake, which was created in November 1978, when Gordon B Hinckley visited in 1998 to announce a Temple that would be built in Regina. It was dedicated the following year.

Here are a couple of articles to help get to know our history.

What is a Stake
A stake
A group of congregations or wards, generally about three thousand to five thousand members in five to ten congregations.

Place of Zion

The word Zion has various meanings in the scriptures. The most general definition of the word is "the pure in heart" (D&C 97:21). Zion is often used in this way to refer to the Lord's people or to the Church and its stakes.

Temple and Family History

Families are central to Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness. He has prepared a way for family relationships to continue throughout eternity.

Defense and a Refuge

The Glory of Zion will be a defense... We can avoid the evils of the world by standing in holy places and to help them draw strength from Isaiah’s willingness to serve.
