Hi I'm Spencer Gordon

I grew up in Oregon, Got married, Joined the military, have 4 Kids and run a non-profit organization, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am married and have four kids, 2 boys and 2 girls. After being married for 9 months, my wife and I decided that I should join the Air force reserves where I met many people and traveled to Germany and Kuwait. I have been blessed to serve my country and have my country help me get an education. I will graduate this April and we hope to move back to Oregon to be closer to family and great recreation. I personally love to duck hunt and count the days down to the next season. I love to be outdoors, especially if it includes, hiking, swimming, hunting, camping, mountain biking and many other things. I love spending time with my family and I want them with me throughout all of time.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is where my father in heaven wants me to be. Through his church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, I can be with my family forever, not just till death, but for all time and eternity. This is the only way to have that miraculous blessing and I cannot afford to pass it by.

How I live my faith

In the Ward that my family and I reside in, I currently am serving as a leader for the adult men. In this calling I am responsible for the spirituality of the men and in turn, the spirituality of the ward. I have 2 men that are my counselors and, as a team, we ensure that everyone is looked after and we do everything we can to ensure the needs of the families are met. This calling is fairly time consuming and takes alot of thought and effort. on average I probably spend somewhere around 15 hours a week ensuring that all is well with the 60+ families in our ward. This is a very important responsibility but a very rewarding one as well. I get to help people change for the good, and see men that are struggling turn their lives around and find their way back to Christ. I wouldn't trade those experiences for all the Gold in the world!
