Retired Apostle Len Young Dies


20 July 2022

     Community of Christ’s First Presidency recently received word that retired Apostle Len Young has died. We are deeply saddened by the news of his passing on 20 July.

     Len Young served in full-time ministry with Community of Christ for twenty-seven years. Some of his assignments included president of the Michigan Region, division director of Congregational Services, president of the High Priest Quorum, and membership on the Council of Twelve Apostles. He also served for several years as World Conference parliamentarian. In retirement, he assisted the First Presidency with special projects. His contributions to the global church were numerous. His presence will be deeply missed.

     The First Presidency joins with all as we remember the life of Len Young and his years of sacrificial ministry that touched lives around the world. We join our prayers with all who are remembering Peggy Young and other members of the family. As a faith community, we hold them in the light and love of Christ’s peace. 

—The First Presidency
