Synod 2011 thanked Rev. Duane K. Kelderman for his 10 years of service at Calvin Theological Seminary as its vice president of administration and associate professor of preaching.
Kelderman also served in various other places in the denomination, including several congregations, on the Candidacy Committee, Board of Trustees, and at several synods as a delegate and faculty advisor.
“I learned to appreciate very much the work that he and others in the seminary did for us,” said Rev. Daniel Zylstra, Classis Quinte. “A large part of why that program is good is due to the work of people such as Duane.”
“Through the continuing education program of Calvin Seminary, Duane has played a significant role in encouraging pastors and congregations in our denomination and beyond. We are thankful for the work that you’ve been able to do among us,” added Zylstra.
