Field Secretary

General field secretaries of the General Conference are workers elected, in addition to the officers, to serve in carrying the field responsibilities of the General Conference, under the direction of the General Conference Executive Committee. They are assigned either to field service or to special projects and responsibilities as determined by the committee. Division field secretaries function similarly under the respective division committees. Field responsibilities may include (1) promoting the general worldwide objectives of the church, (2) promoting specific lines of endeavor, (3) attending and giving assistance in general, union, or local gatherings of workers or church members, and (4) building the spiritual interests of the church.
