Home Teaching

The Home Teaching program is a program set up within the Mormon Church. Those who participate are referred to as home teachers. Throughout the Mormon Church, the program is designed to have two priesthood holders visit 2-4 families in their ward. They are asked to visit the families on at least a monthly basis and share a message with them from the Church leaders. It is also their responsibility to watch out for the families, be friends with them, and offer assistance when needed.Home teachers are encouraged to set up a time that will work well for the family.

Mormon FamilyIf any of the members of the families they teach are inactive, or if the entire family is inactive, the home teachers are encouraged to invite them to Church and provide them with information about events within the ward, as well as anything that has been handed out to the members of the ward throughout the month. When a member of the family is ill, or in need of a blessing, families can call on their home teachers to help give the blessing. This is especially true in homes where the father is absent or does not hold the priesthood.
