Thomas S. Monson, the President of the Mormon Church, died on January 2, 2018. This occasions a change in the leadership in the Mormon Church. The link on the title to this post is to a very interesting interview about Thomas Monson's administration and what comes next by Harvard Divinity School's Michael Naughton of David Holland, a Mormon who is Harvard Divinity School John A. Bartlett Professor of New England Church History. 

When the President of the Mormon Church dies, the longest serving apostle becomes the next president. The next President will therefore be Russell M. Nelson. This link has a nice infographic showing seniority and ages for apostles for those interested in who is most likely to serve as President of the Mormon Church after Russell M. Nelson.
