Mitt Romney rarely speaks about his involvement with the Mormon church, although he was a church leader in Belmont from 1981 to 1994. He counseled families, taught Sunday school and led the congregation in both a spiritual and administrative capacity. In this 1996 speech in a crowded high school auditorium, Romney speaks about the importance of church steeples, saying that the town, state and nation “needs more steeples, not less steeples, pointing symbolically to heaven, where I think the source of our blessings and the source of many of our questions come from.” It is one of the few times he has spoken publicly in affiliation with the Mormon church.
