In Mormonism, the Presiding High Council (also called the High Council in Zion or the High Council of Zion) is a standing high council which presides over the other standing high councils in each stake of Zion.
 Types of High Councils
In the revelations of Joseph Smith, at least three types of high councils are mentioned:
* Standing High Councils,
* a Standing Presiding High Council, and
* a Traveling Presiding High Council.
A stake high council in the LDS Church today would fall under the designation of a “standing high council” in that its jurisdiction is limited to only its own particular stake.
There is only one Standing Presiding High Council, located in Zion. Zion itself is not considered a stake, but is the center of the Church; building upon Isaiah’s imagery of Zion as a tent (Isaiah 54:2), Zion itself is the center pole of the tent, with the stakes of Zion providing support and balance to the center place.
The Standing Presiding High Council in Zion presides over all of the stakes of Zion; a revelation on this council states that “the high council in Zion form a quorum equal in authority in the affairs of the church, in all their decisions, to the councils of the Twelve at the stakes of Zion
