The speaker was Rev. John Smith, a 2004 graduate of Truett-McConnell College, an evangelist who lives in Washington, GA. His wife, the former Brandi Beck, is also a 2004 graduate of TMC. The couple has two sons: Elijah, 3, and Benjamin, 4 months.

He shared his testimony as a former drug addict who became a Christian shortly before he came to Truett-McConnell and whom God called into the ministry.

Using a Scripture text from 1 Peter 1:3-5, he made these three major points:
  • Verse 3: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Christians have a second birth unto a lively hope.
  • Verse 4: To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. Christians have a sure blessing in heaven.
  • Verse 5: Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Christians have security based upon Him.
