Ministry of the Seventy

Seventies are ministers specifically focused on inviting and witnessing to people seeking to commit their lives to Christ. The priesthood office and its function are modeled after the tenth chapter of Luke in the New Testament:

After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. —Luke 10:1 NRSV

The seventies are specifically charged with carrying out missionary work for the church in close association with other missionary leaders. Each quorum has a specific geographical emphasis.
