A letter from President Jared Hollingshead

We would like to invite all members and friends of the Mesquite Nevada West Stake to join us for our Stake Conference next Saturday and Sunday (Feb 17 & 18). We testify that making the effort to attend these meetings will help you learn more about Jesus Christ and strengthen your personal relationships with the Savior. We promise that if you come prepared to listen to the Spirit, you will receive personal revelation that will guide your life. We hope all will attend.  

What Is a Stake Conference? A stake is the name of a regional administrative unit in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It comprises multiple congregations called wards and branches. The word stake is taken from Isaiah 54:2 in the Old Testament, and alludes to an image of a large tent (the Church of Christ) being supported by many stakes.  The purpose of a stake conference is for members and friends of the Church to come together to be taught doctrines of the restored gospel, to feel the Spirit, and to experience the peace that comes through following the Savior. There are two public meetings during the Stake Conference. 

Who Speaks in Stake Conference? The speakers at the conference are brothers and sisters from worshiping units within the Mesquite NV West Stake. Each speaker has prayed and studied to give inspired messages.

What Is the Meeting Schedule?

-Leadership Session: Saturday at 4:00 - 5:30 pm for all members of Stake and Ward Priesthood leaders (youth and adult complete presidencies).

Can I Attend If I am Not a Member of the Church? Yes. We invite all members of the community to attend the Adult Session (Sat at 6:30pm) and the General Session (Sunday at 10am).

Where Are the Meetings Located? The meetings are located at 100 North Arrowhead in Mesquite.

Can I Watch the Conference? Although we prefer members to be present so we can worship together, we understand that not all situations allow for this. The Adult and General Sessions will be streamed on Zoom (
