Coenraad van Diepenbroek (d. 1 September 1714), a Dutch Mennonite minister serving in the Waterlander-Flemish congregation of the Peuzelaarsteeg in Haarlem, 1690-1714, was an advocate of the Lamist principles and a warm participant in the Collegiant movement. He succeeded in 1700 in settling a schism among these Collegiants, which had existed for many years between two groups. He often attended services at Rijnsburg, the Collegiant center, preaching and administering communion. Van Diepenbroek was also active in behalf of the persecuted Swiss Mennonites in 1710. He was a well-known preacher, who is said to have had a large attendance wherever he preached. In 1703 he was asked to dedicate the new meetinghouse at Krommenie after the old church had been devastated by fire. His sermon was published: Predikaatsie . . . in de nieuw-gebouwde Vergaderplaats . . . te Krommenie (Amsterdam, 1703). Other publications by Diepenbroek were Redenvoering over de Hereniging der Twee Vergaderingen tot Rijnsburg, 1700 (Haarlem, n.d.), and Redenvoering op de Dank-dag over de Vrede, 1713 (Haarlem, n.d.). The [[Amsterdam Mennonite Library (Bibliotheek en Archief van de Vereenigde Doopsgezinde Gemeente te Amsterdam)|Mennonite Archives of Amsterdam]] contain seven manuscript volumes of his sermons. J. L. S. preached his funeral sermon, Treurgalm op het afsterven van Koenraad van Diepenbroek. (Haarlem, 1714).
