About The Cumorah Project

The Cumorah Project is a privately funded initiative that engages in research and education. Our major areas of emphasis include:

  • Country and culture research
  • Missiology research (church growth, research, education)
  • Gospel topics
  • Ancient language research
  • Digitization and preparation of electronic texts on related themes
  • Development of original resources

All resources developed are made available online at no cost. The cumorah.com website has been in operation since 1999. We neither solicit nor accept donations.  We provide only research, analysis, and resources and do not engage in proselytization. We respect world cultures and other faiths, and believe in "obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law" in every nation.  All content is the sole responsibility of the individual authors, and is neither authorized nor approved by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints nor by any outside group or institution.  We request that those who desire to make a donation related to LDS missionary efforts donate to the general missionary fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Individuals who have participated in the development of these resources include:

David Stewart. I am a lifelong active LDS member with interest in international cultures, missiology research, comparative religion, and philosophy.  In the course of my research, I have interviewed dozens of LDS mission presidents and hundreds of missionaries, members, and investigators in thirty countries over the course of more than fifteen years. Among other callings, I have served as a ward and stake missionary, ward mission leader, and counselor in a branch presidency.
