Each new President/Prophet of the church has brought fresh challenges and opportunities. In 1996, the church faced a significant change as it welcomed a new President/Prophet who was not from Joseph Smith's family and was not born in the United States. This marked several firsts in the church's history. Project Zion Podcast host Karin Peter engages in a discussion with regular guests Theologian Tony Chvala-Smith and Apostle Lach Machay, reflecting on the leadership of President Prophet W. Grant McMurray, who encouraged the church to transition from being "a people with a prophet" to becoming "a prophetic people," among other important things.
