Life and Letters of the REV. John Philip Boehm free pdf Excerpt from Life and Letters of the Rev. John Philip Boehm: Founder of the Reformed Church in Pennsylvania- 1683-1749 Most of the letters and reports, contained in this volume, were sent by the Rev. John Philip Boehm, the founder of the Reformed Church in Pennsylvania, to the Classis of Amsterdam and the Synods of North and South Holland. It was the earliest of these letters that first attracted the attention of the Reformed Church of Holland to the German Reformed settlers in the Colony of Pennsylvania. The letters cover a period of twenty years. The first of them was written in 1728, the last in 1748. They are twenty-five in number, many of which are lengthy and elaborate. They throw a flood of light upon the founding of the earliest Reformed congregations. Of the more than sixty Reformed congregations in the colony in 1750, reference is made by Boehm to twenty-four, thirteen of which he served for longer or shorter periods, and of twelve of which he may be regarded as the founder. They also contain references to many of the itinerant preachers and school teachers of that early period, besides, the names of a large number of elders, deacons and influential laymen. In addition, the collection, published in this volume, contains also the letters sent to Boehm from Holland, by the Classis as well as the Synods. It was mainly upon the urgent appeals of these letters from Boehm that the Reformed Church of Holland in 1746 commissioned the Rev. Michael Schlatter, to go to Pennsylvania to organize the scattered congregations and ministers into a Coetus or Convention. This was accomplished with the aid of Boehm- and, on September 29, 1747, four ministers and twenty-eight elders, the latter representing twenty congregations, met in Philadelphia and organized the Coetus of the Reformed Congregations of Pennsylvania. For forty-five years(1747-1792) the Coetus of Pennsylvania stood in filial relation to the Church of Holland, being one of the many mission fields of that great missionary church.
