Hi I'm Chad Banks

I grew up in Utah. I am an Eagle Scout. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy jogging. I love watching sports. My wife and I are parents of five children. I graduated from college with a degree in Computer Information Systems. I am a leader of teenage boys.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church, restored to the earth again. I've read the Book of Mormon and know it is from God. The teachings in this church help me develop faith in Christ and bring me great happiness.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to be a leader in the Cub Scouts. I enjoy working with these young boys and teaching them how to be great men with high values. As I go to work each day, I try to emulate Christ in everything I do and say. I try to help others and be positive. When I was 19, I had the opportunity to share the restored gospel as a mission in the Houston, Texas area. I developed a great love for the Savior and the people of that area. I saw many people feel the Spirit of the Lord and they realized the message we had to share with them was from God.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Chad Banks
The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets of the Americas. Their records were abridged by a prophet named Mormon. An angel appeared to Joseph Smith and told him where these records were hidden. He translated them into English and published it as The Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
