John Voorhees was ordained a minister in the Reformed Church of America.
Trust but Verify
Rockwell Potter would claim that he and Voorhees, who had met in New York City during their first pastorates, had been ordained in the Reformed Church of American in the same year, 1898. According to Voorhees’s obituary, Voorhees was still attending the New Brunswick Theological Seminary in 1898.
Put into context
John’s father William was also a minister in the Reformed Church of America. This church connected to their Dutch roots.
