I believe that the vision of TMP is unlike any other and can not only make a direct impact in young lives, but bring a greater movement of care and love for foster- children.
Blessings and Tight Lines!

SPENCER SMITH, LEAD MENTOR

Frankenmuth, Michigan

My name is Spencer Smith and I live and fish in the beautiful state of Pure Michigan! I have been fly-fishing since I was 14 and working with children as a Student Pastor for 15 years!
Niel Postman once said, “Children are the messages we send to the unknown future.” I have dedicated my life to sending a message of love and hope to the generations that we will never meet; I am excited to partner with TMP to help achieve this calling. I have worked with vulnerable children in Chicago, the Middle East, and Honduras as a full-time missionary. I believe that the vision of TMP is unlike any other and can not only make a direct impact in young lives, but bring a greater movement of care and love for foster- children.
