Johannes (Jan) Reyers, died 1680, a practicing physician, was from 1661 until his death a preacher of the Waterlander Mennonite congregation at Amsterdam, Holland. His congregation merged with the Amsterdam Lamist congregation in 1668. Reyers wrote Kort vertoog van de Nootsakelyke voorwaarde der Saligheid (Amsterdam, 1672) and Paulus en Jacobus eens gevoelende in de Leer der Regtvaardigheid (Amsterdam, 1677). Reyers' collection of books became the basis of the present [[Amsterdam Mennonite Library (Bibliotheek en Archief van de Vereenigde Doopsgezinde Gemeente te Amsterdam)|Amsterdam Mennonite Library]]. The Amsterdam Mennonite Archives have his autobiography.
