Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte attended the consistory meeting of the First Reformed Church. Article six read as follows: "The matter of Student Buursma was discussed, and it was decided to receive this for information. Professor [Cornelius] Crispell [at Hope College and who taught in the program of theological education] will be informed that the consistory was satisfied with the public confession in the presence of the congregation, which was made by the above-mentioned brother. At this point, Dr. van Raalte left the meeting."
