Conferentie (from Lat. confero, to bring together, to unite) is the name of a party in the Reformed (Dutch) Church in America, which was opposed to the Caetus, or party of independence. Its members insisted upon the maintenance of organic ecclesiastical relations with the mother church in Holland, and the education and ordination of ministers in that country. Zeal for a learned ministry and attachment to the Church of Holland led these educated clergy and their adherents into measures which produced the most bitter animosities and lamentable divisions, and which rent the Church in twain, until unity was restored in 1771, through the agency of Dr. Livingston. SEE REFORMED CHURCH IN AMERICA. (W.J.R.T.)
