Brother Conrad R. Faulk served his Lord for many years as an elder, high priest, and patriarch. He was an important supporter of the Conference of Elders trying to gather the Independent Restoration Branches together in an attempt to make the church and the gospel restored in 1830 an important part of the religious scene. He became active in the Center Place Prayer and Study Group.
Brother Faulk was part of the group of 12 who met in 1999 at Carthage, Missouri, and affixed their signatures to "A Proclamation and Invitation to the Faithful." This was the beginning of the journey to renew the church and preserve the gospel, church organization, and priesthood as restored in 1830.
In an inspired message on April 8, 2000, he was designated as one of three members of the Patriarchal Order to petition the Lord for inspiration for the ordination of seven apostles. This experience is well documented in the book, Genesis of the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
The Remnant Church was organized in 2000, and Brother Faulk served the church as Acting Presiding Patriarch/ Evangelist for 12 years. In 2013 he became the Presiding Patriarch of the church. After serving for 35 years as a patriarch in the RLDS church and the Remnant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, he was released from that responsibility in 2014, remaining as a valuable member of the Order of Patriarchs.
Brother Faulk touched the lives of many people with his steady, calm, and loving ministry. We are sure he has found peace and joy in the arms of his loving heavenly Father. His ministry enriched the life of the church, and we will miss his wise counsel and loving words of instruction.
