NORTHWEST SUBURBS, ILLINOIS -- Reynold Price....Called to Serve

Brother Price, age 41, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was issued a call to serve as the new bishop of the 2nd ward of the Schaumberg Stake and has accepted that calling. He is a lifelong member of the church and has held many such callings (or positions). He has served as a member of the High Council, a bishop's counselor, a scoutmaster, a teacher and a missionary for the church.

When asked about this newest calling, Price said, "In our church, we believe a man must be called to serve God and I will try with all of my capacity to serve Him in building His Kingdom in this area."

The 2nd Ward is based in Arlington Heights and serves about 320 members from its facility at 2035 N. Windsor Drive. There are approximately 22,000 Mormons in the Chicago area. Worldwide, the church claims more than 11 million members, with Spanish-speaking countries seeing the biggest gains.

Price, an engineering manager at CTS Wireless in Schaumburg, must divide his time between the church, his job and his family. He estimates that he spends 15 to 20 hours per week working for the church in addition to working full time and raising his seven children, ages 15 to 10 months, along with his wife, Juanita. He will act as spiritual adviser, administrator of the ward, oversee the youth programs and will be the chief financial officer of the ward. His wife Juanita was recently released from a women's leadership role in the church because it would It would take too much time away from the family.
