Thomas Smith is a sought-after national and international parish mission and conference speaker and a frequent guest on EWTN and Catholic radio. A former Protestant minister, he was received into the Catholic Church in 1996. Smith’s wealth of experience and Scriptural insight coupled with his quick wit and energy have quickly established him as one of the most requested presenters available.
Thomas is the co-author of the Great Adventure Catholic Bible study on Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come and an international presenter for the Great Adventure. He holds a degree in Philosophy from the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome and did his graduate theology at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver.
Smith has taught as an adjunct professor at the St. Francis School of Theology in Denver and is the former Director of the Denver Catholic Biblical School and the Denver Catechetical School. He also serves on the Curriculum Advisory Body for FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students).
He co-founded the Philippine Catholic Biblical Mission Foundation, which has trained more than 3,500 lay leaders and catechists in the Philippines and provided thousands of scriptural materials to dioceses, parishes, and adult faith formation programs in the islands. Thomas lives on his family ranch in southeastern Idaho where he continues to explore the riches of our faith. You can learn more about his work at Gen215.org.
“Thomas Smith is the ideal 21st century Catholic speaker and evangelist. He mixes a vast knowledge of the past with a compelling contemporary presentation style. He is relevant, compassionate, and genuine. Thomas was the perfect choice for our parish mission. He is light-hearted and at the same time he moves hearts. I recommend him to every parish or conference without hesitation.”—Fr Randy Dollins, St. Mary, Our Lady of Peace in Summit County
