Classis West met in special session on Wednesday and Thursday, June 17 and 18, 1992, in South Holland, Illinois. This meeting was held to conduct the peremptoir examination of Pastor-elect Mitchell Dick. Pastor-elect Dick successfully sustained his examination and the Immanuel Protestant Reformed Church of Lacombe, Alberta, Canada, was advised to proceed with his ordination to the ministry of the Word and sacraments.
Via its Classical Committee, Classis West also received and approved a request from Rev. Audred Spriensma of the Christian Reformed Church for admission to the Protestant Reformed Churches under Article 9 of the Church Order. Classis conducted an examination of Rev. Spriensma, and after successfully sustaining his examination he was admitted to the ministry of the Word in the Protestant Reformed Churches and declared eligible for a call.
