Provo Stake-Sponsored Self-Reliance Groups
For the past two years, our stake has been implementing the Church’s twelve-week program of self-reliance courses, designed to help all members of the Church acquire the ability, commitment, and make the effort to provide for the spiritual and temporal necessities of life for self and family.
On Sunday, January, 2020, the Provo Utah Stake will introduce 4 different courses-- Personal Finances, Starting and Growing My Business, Find a Better Job and Education for Better Work. These twelve-week courses provide group members with opportunities to learn and grow both spiritually and temporally. We invite you to consider enrolling in one of these courses. Feedback from previous participants is overwhelmingly positive. Many blessings have come to our stake members who have taken these classes. We are confident that these same kinds of blessings will come to you too.
We invite you - if you have not already done so - to prayerfully consider participating in one of these groups. If you would like to participate, please click the "register" buttons below and indicate which of one of courses you are interested in attending.
Please plan to attend an important, one-hour organizational/information meeting on January 5. You will be personally contacted to notify you of this meeting’s time and location. At the meeting, registrants will be organized into groups, meet the facilitator for their group, and together decide on when and where you’ll hold weekly meetings. Within a week thereafter, the first of the twelve group meetings will be held.

Life changing experience. My education and career are on a clear and focused path. I know what I'm doing.
Best 12 weeks my wife and I have spend together. Everything is different. We now know the Lord cares about both our spiritual and temporal lives.
