Dr. Hendrik “Henry” Krabbendam (a.k.a. “Dr. K”) (b. 1935) is a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at Covenant College. He is married and has four children. Born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, he earned his B.A. and M. Div. from the Theological University in the Netherlands before coming to North America, where he pastored churches in the Canadian Reformed and Orthodox Presbyterian Churches. He received his Th.M. (Systematic Theology) and Th.D. (Apologetics) from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. His doctoral thesis was an examination of the work of the 20th century philosopher Martin Heidegger. At Westminster, Krabbendam was a student of the Calvinist philosopher Cornelius Van Til, and became one of his most influential students, along with John Frame and Greg Bahnsen. In 1973 he joined the faculty of Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA, where he served for 32 year as a Professor of Biblical Studies until his retirement in 2005. He was beloved by generations of students for his intense passion for the gospel, and especially for his tireless work in missions and evangelism. While at Covenant he taught courses in Christian Doctrine, Old and New Testament Surveys, Pauline Epistles, Apologetics, Biblical Evangelism, Biblical Hermeneutics, James, Christian Ethics, and many more.
In the early 1980s he pioneered Presbyterian missions in Uganda, where he founded the Africa Christian Training Institute (ACTI) and remains active until the present time. He has served on the Advisory Board of the International Council of Biblical Inerrancy, the Steering Committee of the Congress on Revival and Reformation, and is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society. He is highly sought after for preaching, teaching, and missions and evangelism seminars around the world. Dr. Krabbendam has published a book on Sovereignty and Responsibility and a two volume commentary on the book of James.
