Barthel, Hendrik Christiaan (1877-1936)
Hendrik Christiaan Barthel, b. 19 April 1877, d. 30 December 1936, became proponent (ministerial candidate) of the Algemene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit in 1902 after completing his studies at the University of Utrecht and the Amsterdam seminary. He served in succession the following congregations: Holwerd, 1902-1912; Balk and Woudsend, 1912-1916; Aalsmeer, 1916-1926; Twisk and Medemblik, 1926-1935, in which year he had to resign because of his health. By those who knew him he was honored as a man of simplicity and faithfulness to duty. Through his principles—Christian socialism, total abstinence, nonresistance—he occupied a unique place in the brotherhood.
