At a congregational meeting of the First Reformed Church at which Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte presided, selection was made of a trio of candidates. They were Rev. Roelof Pieters, Rev. Pieter Oggel, and Rev. Joh. Brummelkamp. "Rev. Van Raalte requested not to be included in the vote." (This is an indication that some persons in the congregation wished to have him continue his ministry in the Pillar Church. He was fifty-six years of age at this time.)
