Hi I'm Hap

About Me

By 5th generation Mormon let me explain; my great, great, grandfather David Clough (he change spelling to Cluff after joining the LDS Church) became converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as proclaimed by Latter-day Saints when in 1830 he encountered Martin Harris while crossing a river on a ferry in upstate New York. As soon as he was able he and his brother Benjamin gathered their families and joined the Saints. He was baptized by Joseph Smith's brother Hyrum. Placing him among the first 1000 members of the LDS Church. Currently I'm a Bishop (volunteer pastor) of the Norfolk 2nd Ward (a congregation of around 600 members). My career was as a CIO (Chief Information Officer) at City of Fresno, CA and most recently City of Norfolk, VA; currently working as Senior Advisor for Tremendum Pictures producing quality family friendly films. My wife Vicki and I have 5 grown children and 8 grand children.

Why I am a Mormon

Truth lives here. It is my firm belief that each of us can know the truth of all things. I believe in a God who when asked will answer. This principle of ongoing and continual "revelation" is unique to the Mormon faith. We ask through Jesus Christ, God speaks, and the Holy Ghost (a unique and separate personage of spirit) affirms.

How I live my faith

As a Bishop it is my privilege to get to know the needs of all the members of our congregation. I struggle with them to meet their daily needs and grow their spirits.
