Rogerus Buitenpost was, like many other Mennonite preachers, a physician, for he wrote a medical dissertation. From his book, Kort Begrip van den Christelijken godsdienst voor de Doopsgezinde gemeente te Krommenie (Amsterdam, 1742), we gather that he must have been the preacher there, although Blaupot ten Cate does not include him in his list of preachers at the end of his book, Rede ter gedachtenis van het 300 jarig bestaan van een Doopsgezinde gemeente te Zaandam. He names him rather as the preacher of the neighboring congregation Koog and Zaandijk. Buitenpost studied at the seminary in Amsterdam; he matriculated on 24 July 1729. Besides the above booklet he also published Eerste beginselen van de leere des Geloofs (Amsterdam, 1740) and Onderwijzinge in den Christelijken godsdienst (Amsterdam, 1744). He was born ca. 1710 at Amsterdam, served at Koog-Zaandijk and Krommenie, and at Alkmaar 1741-d. 1747.
