Technically speaking, the first offices held by General Authorities in this dispensation were those given 6 April 1830 to “Joseph Smith, Jun., who was called of God, and ordained an apostle of Jesus Christ, to be the first elder of this church; and to Oliver Cowdery, who was also called of God, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to be the second elder of this church.” As “first elder” the Prophet functioned as president of the Church for nearly three years before the Lord directed the formal organization of the First Presidency.
