Cecil Scott Grow (born May 5, 1948) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) since 2005.


Grow was born in Moscow, Idaho, and grew up in Boise, Idaho. As a young man, he was an LDS Church missionary in the Southeast Mexican Mission of the church.

After his mission, Grow received a bachelor's degree in accounting from Brigham Young University and married Rhonda Lee Patten. They are the parents of eight children.

Grow was employed as an accountant. He worked for several accounting firms before he founded his own accounting partnership.

Grow has served in the LDS Church as a counselor in a stake presidency, stake president and regional representative. From 1988 to 1991, he was president of the church's Uruguay Montevideo Mission. As an area seventy from 1995 to 2005 he was in the presidency of both the North America Northwest and Idaho areas of the church. During this time, he was president of the Idaho Area from 2001 to 2003, one of only two non-general authorities to have served as an area president (the other being Enrique R. Falabella).

In 2005, Grow became a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy where he has served as a counselor and as president of the Mexico North Area, as well as a counselor in the Mexico Area.
