Katy Resident Appointed to LDS Leadership

Recommended Posts

KATY (Covering Katy) – Michael Daiely, a 17-year resident of Katy, has been named second counselor by members of nine local congregations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Dailey replaces Scott Welch, who is replacing John Allen as president. David Hansen is replacing David Sosa as first counselor.

Welch, Hansen and Dailey are recognized clergy in the LDS church and receive their appointments from authorities sent from church headquarters in Salt Lake City. They typically serve for up to nine years and maintain their professions during their assignment.

The president, first counselor and second counselor oversee church members and congregations in the Katy, Cypress and Spring Branch communities. Combined, these congregations comprise the Houston Texas Bear Creek Stake, one of more than 20 stakes in the Houston area. Houston has more than 140 LDS church congregations.

Dailey is a vice president at a local industrial gas company. He and his wife of 21 years, Leah Dailey, have five children and are involved in the Katy Independent School District’s Future Farmers of America Livestock Show and Rodeo Committee and Katy Cowgirls rodeo performance group, as well as a local Boy Scout troop.

“My personal goal as a member of the stake presidency is to learn to live, love, teach and serve in the way the Savior did,” Dailey said. “Many people who aren’t of my faith are friends with members of our church and are impressed by who we are and how we live. We invite anyone who wants to know more about the doctrine we teach to come and see.”

Welch is an attorney at Phillips 66. He and his wife, Laura Welch, live in the Bridgeland community in Cypress and have four children and five grandchildren.

“As stake president, I want to help people strengthen their faith in Jesus Christ,” Welch said.

Hansen, of the Copperfield area, is a management consultant and the retired senior vice president and chief administrative officer of a local chemical company. He and his wife, Lisa Hansen, have been married for 45 years and have five children and six grandchildren. They enjoy supporting nonprofit organizations, such as United Way and the Houston Food Bank.

“It’s a great honor to serve with these great men (Welch and Dailey) and to work with our wonderful church members who strive each day to be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ,” Hansen said.
