I’d just like to say I think it’s cool that one of the counsellors in the Paniqui Philippines Stake presidency works as a cashier.

A bit of a change from the professionals and businessmen.

  1. I agree a few non-white collared careers might be refreshing for a Stake President. While the demands put on a Stake President are well suited to corporate types, sometimes there is a tendency to run the church like a corporation.

    Though the church includes several corporations: Corporation of the Presiding Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Corporation of the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Intellectual Reserve, Inc., it is not a corporation and should not run like one.

  2. I was trying to think through what my last several stake presidents have done for a living. The ones I can remember have mostly been in fairly learned professions. But in most cases, I just never knew! Something tells me that’s good. I do remember having a bishop who was a janitor.

    1. In most recent to least recent, mine were: lawyer, educator, doctor, accountant, and educator. Older than that, I just can’t remember.

      My bishops, in the same order were: salesperson, auditor, entrepreneur, golf course manager, pharmacist, construction manager, dentist, car salesperson, graphic artist. Beyond that, I can’t remember.
