Hi I'm Spencer Clegg

I'm a missionary in the California Ventura Mission. I plan to go to University of Utah after my mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 18 years old and will begin serving my mission on July 26th in Ventura, CA. I have won 2 wrestling state titles and was fourth at nationals in eighth grade. As of right now I do not plan to wrestle in college but I haven't ruled it out as long as it's for a division 1 school. If I don't wrestle I'm gonna go to the University of Utah and major in biology. I love being outside, my favorite things being riding horses, hunting, fishing, golfing, and jumping into water from high places:).

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Spencer Clegg
All worthy and able young men are commanded to serve a mission. However, like any commandment, we can chose whether or not to obey it. Blessings are associated with obedience to this commandment and harmful consequences may come as a result of disobedience. Young women are not commanded to serve a mission, but their service is welcomed. Show more Show less
