Written by C. Keuning
A colloquium doctum was conducted in June 2001 at the request of the Monarch Free Reformed Church with Rev. James Greendyk of the Heritage Reformed Congregation of Fort MacLeod. Pastor Greendyk was formerly a Christian school principal, later a student minister in the Netherlands Reformed Church, who became the first minister to be ordained in the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Church. He served the Burgessville, Ontario congregation before joining the Fort MacLeod congregation in 1998.

A colloquium doctum was conducted in November 2001 at the request of the Pompton Plains Free Reformed Church with Rev. David Lipsy of the Heritage Reformed Congregation of Pompton Plains. Pastor Lipsy was formerly a Christian school principal and received his ministerial training at the Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. He was ordained and installed in the Pompton Plains congregation in 1999. He is currently pursuing further (doctoral) studies in counselling. Pastor Lipsy has spoken at the Free Reformed Student Society and the Rehoboth Christian School in Copetown on Biblical courtship.

At the request of the Monarch Free Reformed Church a colloquium doctum was conducted in December 2001 with Rev. Darryl Brooker of the (independent) Westminster Chapel in Lethbridge, Alberta. Pastor Brooker grew up in Niagara Falls and was trained at the Knox Theological Seminary in Florida under Dr. Jonathan Gerstner. He has preached on several occasions in the Bethel Reformed Church, and is therefore well known to that congregation. In the Spring of 2001 he left the Reformed Church of America with a majority of his congregation following him.

The committee has granted permission to these three ministers to preach in our churches.
