PROVO, Utah — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has finalized plans to expand the Missionary Training Center in Provo.

Crews are expected to start building new structures south of the existing campus in the summer of 2015, according to a press release from the LDS Church. The additional space will be used for classroom learning, personal study and small-group activities.

Construction is expected to take two years.

The additional space will increase capacity to train as many as 3,500 elder and sister missionaries at one time from 2,800.
