The wearing of fabric head coverings in worship was universally the practice of Christian women until the twentieth century. What happened? Did we suddenly find some biblical truth to which the saints for thousands of years were blind? Or were our biblical views of women gradually eroded by the modern feminist movement that has infiltrated the Church...? - R.C. Sproul

How to Find a Head Covering Church

How to Find a Head Covering Church

When a person is convinced of the necessity of head covering they often desire to be in a church that shares those same convictions. It is a good thing when biblical gender roles and the symbol of head covering are celebrated and encouraged. I personally, as the founder of the Head Covering Movement made the conscience choice to join a non head covering church (and I don’t regret it). However, for those who do desire to be in a church that practices this symbol, I’d like to offer help on how to find those churches and some advice if you’re currently a member of another assembly.

The first thing you need to know about finding a head covering church is that this practice will vary assembly-to-assembly. So while there are some denominations where there are more adherents to this practice than others, it will still be on a church-by-church basis. Read more

Head Covering Sermons

Preacher: Joel Walters | Sermon Length: 1hr 3min | Preached: Sept 20, 2015

At a very young age Joel responded to the Gospel message and became a disciple of Jesus Christ. As a young man, he felt God’s call to ministry and after graduating from High School he began working at his church. He served in whatever way possible and eventually became the worship leader and worked with the youth ministry. In 2008 he was led by the Lord to plant The Bible Fellowship a non-denominational church in Wimauma, FL. He has been pastoring there ever since.

Should Women Wear Head Coverings?: A Response to Benjamin L. Merkle regarding Inconsistency

Response to Benjamin L. Merkle
The following article is a response to Benjamin L. Merkle’s paper entitled “Paul’s Arguments from Creation in 1 Corinthians 11:8-9 and 1 Timothy 2:13-14: An Apparent Inconsistency Answered“. It was published by ETS in 2006. Later in 2015 the Gospel Coalition published an abridged version entitled “Should Women Wear Head Coverings?

In 1 Timothy 2:13-14 and 1 Corinthians 11:7-9, the Apostle Paul appeals to the creation order to explain and defend his teaching on gender roles in the church. Here’s what he says in each passage:

But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. (1 Tim 2:13-14 NASB)

For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man. For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman’s sake, but woman for the man’s sake. Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head… (1 Cor 11:7-10a)

Since both passages appeal to the creation order, consistent treatment is needed. This means Complementarians should affirm that both practices and teachings are trans-cultural.

Dr. Benjamin Merkle (Professor, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) believes in complementarian roles and affirms the truths taught in 1 Timothy 2. However, he believes that head covering was a cultural practice that women do not need to implement today. His paper is a defense for why holding to these two positions is not inconsistent treatment.
