Temple Announcement

On April 4, 2021, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Willamette Valley Oregon Temple at the 191st Annual General Conference. Oregon, a state in the western United States, is home to nearly 154,000 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Latter-day Saint settlement largely began with the arrival of Latter-day Saint businessmen in 1887. They built a lumber mill on North Powder River and persuaded several hundred Latter-day Saint families to migrate to Oregon. Today, there are approximately 300 congregations across the state. The Willamette Valley Oregon Temple will be the third in the state, with other temples in Portland and Medford.1
