The purpose of this study was to determine the counseling role of the seminary teacher. Answers to the following were sought:
1. Are there significant differences in the counseling role of the seminary teacher as seen by members of stake presidencies and bishops, and as seen by seminary teachers themselves?
2. Is there a consensus among teachers and Church leaders concerning the counseling role of the seminary teacher?
3. What is the counseling role of the seminary teacher?
The following conclusions were drawn:
1. There were significant differences on six of the twenty-five items. No pattern of difference was shown.
2. There was a consensus on nineteen of the twenty-five tems on the questionnaire.
3. Church leaders expect much of the seminary teacher in doing student counseling. They expressed approval of his past counseling work.
