Springfield Missouri Temple Location Announced

Springfield Missouri Temple Location Announced

It was announced yesterday that the Springfield Missouri Temple will be built on a portion of a 38-acre site located at 2720 East Farm Road #188, Springfield, Missouri. The initial plans call for a multi-story temple of approximately 29,000 square feet. Clearly the number of Latter-day Saints in Missouri continues to grow, so the new temple will be a wonderful blessing to those in the area. Right now in the state there are more than 80,000 Latter-day Saints in nearly 165 congregations. This will be Missouri’s third temple, following the St. Louis Temple and the Kansas City Temple.

As always, this is an early announcement, so the detailed design plans for the temple are still being developed. An exterior rendering has not yet been released, but hopefully it will be in the near future. A groundbreaking date has also not been set. That information will come at a late time. But the great news is that project leaders can now begin working with city officials to coordinate planning for the future temple.

The Springfield Temple was one of 15 temples announced just over a year ago during the April 2023 General Conference.
