The annual Brigham Young University Church History Symposium, “Go Ye into All the World,” will focus on the growth and development of missionary work in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Saturday, March 5, from 8 a.m. to noon in the BYU Conference Center.

The symposium is free, and no registration is required to attend.

Each year, the BYU Church History Symposium, sponsored by the BYU Religious Studies Center, shares research and explores a topic of interest in the experience of the Church of Jesus Christ.

Selected papers from each symposium are published in a book by the Religious Studies Center.
