Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) are led by a group of 15 men, each ordained as an apostle of Jesus Christ. The longest-serving apostle serves as the President of the Church. The President selects two apostles to serve with him in the First Presidency. The other apostles form the Quorum of Twelve Apostles with the most senior of them serving as President of the Quorum.
When one of the apostles dies, a new apostle is selected by the President and sustained by the membership of the Church at a General Conference. At the October 2015 Conference, three new apostles were called. They were announced in this order: Ronald A. Rasband, Gary E. Stevenson, and Dale G. Renlund.
