Elder John Groberg

Elder John Groberg was called as a General Authority in 1976 and received emeritus status in 2005. He served his mission to Tonga and his memoirs were later made into the film The Other Side of Heaven. The film focuses on Groberg’s adventurous experiences and trials while he serves as a missionary in the South Pacific. Elder Groberg returned 10 years later and served as Mission President. The Other Side of Heaven II, opening in theaters in April 2019, continues the story of Elder Groberg’s experiences as a mission president. Elder Groberg also served as Idaho Falls Temple president 2005-2008. His engaging manner and wonderful experiences are sure to inspire us.
