Name: Arie J. Vanden Heuvel (1854-1924)


Historical Note:

Arie J. Vanden Heuvel was born in Werkendam, North Bradbant, the Netherlands on August 17, 1854. Before pursuing a career in the ministry, Vanden Heuvel held various other job in both the Netherlands as well as first entering the United States. Vanden Heuvel enrolled at Calvin Theological Seminary and graduated in 1890.

His first charge was in Zutphen, Michigan in the same year of his graduation. He went on to serve several other congregations including Dispatch, Kansas (1892-1895); West Side, Cleveland, Ohio (1895-1902); Hospers, Iowa (1902-1904); Rochester, New York (1904-1907).

In 1907, he joined the North Side Church in Passaic, New Jersey as their minister. By 1912 a disagreement, which led to court and the removal of Vanden Heuvel’s license to preach by the mother church, occurred. Vanden Heuvel left the Christian Reformed Church for the Reformed Church in America. He pastored at the following churches under the Reformed Church in America: RCA: Fourth, Passaic, New Jersey (1912-1914); Atwood, Michigan (1914-1917); Beverly, Michigan (1917-1920); Twin Lakes, Minnesota (1920-1922). In 1922, Rev. Vanden Heuvel retired from active ministry.

On March 9, 1924, Rev. Arie J. Vanden Heuvel passed away in Clifton, New Jersey due to a lingering illness. His wife, née Van Lonkhuyzen, had passed away only two month before him.
