Truth and Peace 2016 was a year of firsts! The conference had its largest number of student leaders with 130 students attending from 20 states and the countries of Spain and Canada. It was also the first event ever hosted by Randall University after their name change became official on July 1. There were 20 teams that were captained by third year (301) Truth and Peace students, each team representing a country where Free Will Baptist missionaries, teachers, and workers ministering for the sake of the Gospel. The ten days on campus were packed with teaching, training, and worship as the staff and 401’s guided the process with many hours of service. After shifting from Randall University to the Vertical III conference in Kansas City, MO the T&P students began to practice their servant leadership in a variety of ways as conference staff.
