In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
(LDS Church), the Priesthood Executive Committee
(commonly called PEC
) consists of the bishopric
of a ward
and the elders quorum
president, the high priest
group leader, the ward mission leader
and the Young Men President
. In student and singles wards where not all these offices exist the counselors of the elders quorum president are often involved in the PEC as well.
There is also a stake
PEC which consists of the stake presidency and the high council
The ward PEC normally meets weekly while the stake PEC tends to meet twice a month. However, both organizations often meet in ward or stake councils that involve more people. The ward council tends to also include the Relief Society president, the Young Women President, the Primary president as well as the ward activities chairperson, the ward music chairperson, and the Sunday School president.
