On Sunday the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints created its sixth stake in Spokane County.
The new Mount Spokane Stake will be overseen by President Jed McKinlay, who will be assisted by two counselors, Matthew Borders and Darin Christensen.
A stake is defined as a collection of six to 12 congregations in a geographic area, with each congregation having approximately 300 people.
The local church has about 26,000 members in the county. Five new congregations have formed in the past five years. This is the first stake formed in the county in 14 years.
