PRC Archives – Featuring Rev.Gerrit Vos

And for our PRC archive item today, we bring you a little collage of photos of Rev. Gerrit Vos (1884-1968), a faithful minister of the Word in the PRC for over 40 years.

I recently found these in his folder in the photo file in the archive room and decided to feature them today.

Perhaps there is some mystery involved in these pictures, so if you have information on them, or simply wish to share your remembrances of Rev. Vos, feel free to do so in the comment section. He was, after all, known to be a bit of a character – as you will see from one of the photos. Enjoy!


Update: I hope you have paid attention to the comments that have come in (as well as a few emails) – I appreciate them much, as they have been quite helpful in identifying some folks in these pictures. The biggest matter is that the final picture here is not Rev. Vos at all, but Rev. Ophoff!

In the middle picture (clearly a ballgame setting!), we have learned from the young man himself that the fella to the left is Jerry Kuiper (the retired school teacher, administrator, and Voices of Victory 1st tenor! – thanks for this, Jerry!) 🙂

Another private observer noted that he thinks the man to the far right in the last picture (with Rev. Ophoff and a yet-unknown man) is William Kamps. If anyone recognizes the man in the middle, we would appreciate hearing from you.

  1. I think the last picture is Rev. George Ophoff.


    • Thanks, Otto – yes that was a good catch! and I have corrected my post now too. And placed the picture in the correct file!


  2. He was the umpire in the middle picture. The cool guy with him used to be in the Voices of Victory.


  3. If I recall the story correctly, the sign on the top is a replacement for one calling him “The Silver Fox.” Apparently, he took no (or at least less) offense at the term “Flying Wolf.”
