Prof. Dr. W. van 't Spijker passed away

As students and staff of the Theological University of the Christian Reformed Churches in the Netherlands we have been very saddened to learn of the passing of

Prof. Dr. W. van ’t Spijker

He served the Theological University with great dedication from 1972 to 1997. He taught the disciplines of church history, church law and introduction to theology. With his knowledge and experience he played a formative role for  many who studied at the Theological University Apeldoorn. Prof. Van 't Spijker knew how to combine his work as an academic with his service to the churches in an extraordinary way. We are grateful for what the LORD has given us in him.

Come, bless the LORD,
all you servants of the LORD,
who stand by night in the house of the LORD. (Ps. 134:1)

We pray that his children and family will receive the comfort and strength of our God.
