Gordon B. Hinckley
President of the Church, 1995-2008
President Hinckley has great love and concern for all: "I plead with our people everywhere to live with respect and appreciation for those not of our faith. ... We live in a world of diversity. We can and must be respectful toward those with whose teachings we may not agree. ...
"I love the youth of the Church. I have said again and again that I think we have never had a better generation than this. How grateful I am for your integrity, for your ambition to train your minds and your hands to do good work, for your love for the word of the Lord, and for your desire to walk in paths of virtue and truth and goodness. ...
"This church does not belong to its President. Its head is the Lord Jesus Christ, whose name each of us has taken upon ourselves. We are all in this great endeavor together. ...
"We have nothing to fear. God is at the helm. He will overrule for the good of this work. He will shower down blessings upon those who walk in obedience to His commandments" (in Conference Report, Apr. 1995, 9395; or Ensign, May 1995, 70-71).
Under the direction of the First Presidency, President Hinckley has dedicated more temples than any other General Authority (see Deseret News 1995-1996 Church Almanac , 3:29-30).
