Report of Classis East

Special Session, October 13, 2010 First PRC — Holland, MI

Classis East met in special session on Wednesday, October 13, 2010 for the purpose of examining Daniel Holstege, the Pastor-elect of First PRC, Holland, MI. Rev. H. Bleyenberg was the chair of this session.

Pastor-elect Daniel Holstege successfully sustained his examination, and a Classical Diploma was presented to him certifying this accomplishment. The consistory of the First PRC, Holland was authorized to ordain and install Pastor-elect Holstege into the office of the ministry of the Word and sacraments in the Protestant Reformed Churches.

These are joyous occasions for our churches when a man is added to the ranks of those called to be a pastor. Thanksgiving to God for this gift was expressed in words and prayer.

Classis will meet again in regular session on Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at Trinity PRC.

Respectfully submitted,

Jon J. Huisken, Stated Clerk
