Gareth Brandt, professor of practical theology at Columbia Bible College, Abbotsford, B.C., was the speaker for the weekend. Speaking on "Radical revolution: The Anabaptist movement of the 16th century," he explained how the Anabaptist movement was really a young people's movement, since most of those involved were dead by the age of 30.
