Heinrich D. Rempel: elder of the Mennonite congregation of Deyevka in the Orenburg Mennonite settlement in Russia; was by vocation a farmer and was chosen as minister in 1899. In that year the congregation of Deyevka, which had been founded in 1894 as a subsidiary of the Chortitza Mennonite Church, organized as an independent congregation. Its first elder was Abram Penner. He retired in May 1910, and his successor, Rempel, was chosen in 1911. During Rempel's eldership there was an important revival movement as the consequence of the house visits made by the preacher and missionary Johann J. Peters of Susannovo in nearly all the families. After a service of 12 years as a preacher and 13 additional years as elder Rempel died in 1924. He was succeeded by Isaak G. Krahn.

The Mennonite Encyclopedia mistakenly has two articles regarding Heinrich Rempel, with one under "Rempel, Heinrich" and the second under "Rempel, Hermann D." It is possible that there was confusion with Hermann Rempel, a deacon in the Kamenka Mennonite Brethren Church in Orenburg.
