History of the University

The Co-operative General Association of Free Will Baptist in the west opened Tecumseh College in Tecumseh, Oklahoma in 1917. The school was destroyed by fire in 1927 and was never completely rebuilt due to the depression, dust bowl days, World War II, and the Korean Conflict. Bible institutes were sponsored by the Oklahoma State Association of Free Will Baptists which developed into Oklahoma Bible College (OBC). OBC was officially launched in Tulsa in January, 1959. The college began operations at its present location on September 13, 1966, embracing a vision of higher education which included the study of the liberal arts.

In 1971, the governing board renamed the institution Hillsdale Free Will Baptist College in honor of Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan, which began as a Free Will Baptist institution in 1844. (Hillsdale College in Michigan is no longer affiliated with Free Will Baptist.) Student enrollment in non-ministry degree programs proliferated, leading to the offering of a variety of degrees. Two Master of Arts degrees are now offered.

The university’s name was publicly changed to Randall University on July 1, 2016, in honor of Benjamin Randall (February 7, 1749 – October 22, 1808), the founder of the Free Will Baptists in the northeastern United States. 

Though Randall University has been known by several names, the institution continues to have one clear purpose:

Equipping men and women to make a difference 
for Christ, His Church, and the community.
