    History

    Click here for the Church's Slovenia Newsroom site

     

    In 1975 leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints established the Church as a legal entity in Yugoslavia. In 1992 the first Latter-day Saint Slovenian couple was married in the Church's Frankfurt Germany Temple. The first Latter-day Saint missionary from the Republic of Slovenia was sent to preach in the Utah Salt Lake City Mission in 1993. In 1997 Slovenian Latter-day Saints wrote their personal beliefs regarding the Church in a book that crossed Russia in a handcart, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the historic Mormon pioneer trek across the Great Plains of the United States. Leon Bergant, a timed-trial bicycle champion and member of the Slovene National Bike Team, left the team in 1997 to preach as a missionary in Croatia.

    Headquarters of the Austria Vienna South Mission was relocated to Ljubljana in March 1999, and renamed the Slovenia Ljubljana Mission. By 1999 the Church had 199 members.
