Elder Jeffrey R. Holland and his wife, Patricia, after the Saturday afternoon session of the 185th Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, in Salt Lake City.

Since June 2014, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has hosted five live Face to Face events. During these interactive social media forums, youths have posed questions to LDS leaders and fellow members of the church such as David Archuleta, Lindsey Stirling and The Piano Guys.

On March 8, the LDS Church will host the first Face to Face event geared toward young single adults. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be joined by Sister Carole M. Stephens, first counselor in the Relief Society general presidency, and Elder Donald L. Hallstrom of the Seventy as they answer questions submitted by young single adults throughout the world.

“I cherish every chance I get to interact with the young single adults of this church,” Elder Holland told LDS.org. “I wish I could meet with each of them individually, look each one in the eye and express my love personally. Constraints of time and distance make that impossible, but fortunately social media helps us loosen those constraints. That’s what is so exciting about our worldwide Face to Face events. We call them 'face to face' because it feels a bit like that — asking and answering questions in real time, in a setting that feels more intimate than what we might otherwise get.”

On LDS.org, Elder Holland also pointed out that the benefit of these events is that their messages spread as participants share what they learned on social media.

“That has been our experience with Face to Face events for youth,” Elder Holland said. “And I can only imagine what our experience will be with our young single adults.”

The event will be broadcast live online on March 8 at 6 p.m. MST.

Young single adults can submit questions and learn more about the event at YSAface2face.lds.org. Questions can also be submitted using #LDSface2face on social media.
