Former BC Mission President Now Temple President

Former BC Mission President Now Temple President

CARDSTON - Formerly president of the Canada Vancouver Mission from 1992-1995, Heber Blaine Kapp, 74, was recently called as president of the Cardston Alberta Temple.

Western Canada isn't unfamiliar territory to President Kapp. He had served in the Western Canadian Mission from 1947-1949, and even married a girl from the Cardston area. Many may remember his wife as more than a mission mum to thousands of missionaries during those three years. Sister Ardeth Green Kapp had served as both president and counsellor in the general Young Women presidency. But she is most likely more famous for her inspirational and motivational music and arrangements.

President and Sister Kapp come to Cardston from the Canyon Park Ward, Bountiful Utah Central Stake. Both of them bring with them years of leadership experience.

In addition to his stint as mission president, President Kapp, a retired educator and building contractor, has served as regional representative, temple sealer, stake president and counsellor, high councillor, bishop, stake Young Men president and counsellor. Sister Kapp, an alumnus of the University of Utah and BYU, has served as general Young Women president and counsellor, Church curriculum committee member, youth correlation committee member, BYU faculty member, temple ordinance worker and stake Relief Society president. She received a masters' degree from BYU, and bachelor's degree from the University of Utah. She was born in Cardston, Alberta, to Edwin Kent and Julia Leavitt Greene.

President Kapp is the son of Harm and Pieterka Boekweg Kapp and Sister Kapp is the daughter of Edwin Kent and Julia Leavitt Greene.
