in 1902 after completing his studies at the University of Utrecht and the Amsterdam seminary
. He served in succession the following congregations: Holwerd
, 1902-1912; Balk
, 1912-1916; Aalsmeer
, 1916-1926; Twisk
, 1926-1935, in which year he had to resign because of his health. By those who knew him he was honored as a man of simplicity and faithfulness to duty. Through his principles—Christian socialism, total abstinence, nonresistance—he occupied a unique place in the brotherhood.
