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

Covering Testimony: Jess W

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hi I’m Jess! I have been happily married for 7 years. The Lord has blessed us with two lovely children so far. We are a homeschooling family living on a farm in beautiful western Maryland. In January 2009 I was drawn into saving union with Jesus Christ and since that time I have sought by God’s grace, to be a follower of Jesus Christ. The Bible became my guide in every area of life and I seek to please the Lord in all I do and say.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it. Do others practice headcovering there?

We are currently attending a PCA Presbyterian Church in the area and hope to pursue membership soon! At the time I began covering my husband and I were also in the process of finding a church family. We began attending conservative Brethren and Mennonite churches (where the women cover) for the past two years but just recently found that the Lord is leading us elsewhere due to differences in doctrinal beliefs. We have been praying that the Lord will direct our steps and believe we have finally found a local church we can call home. Currently I am the only woman there who practices head covering. It used to bother me at first, but I know the Lord in His mercy and grace has the power to convict others just like He did to me. Jesus Christ is Who saves us, not our outward appearance. When we get too focused on outward appearance sometimes we tend to forget that head covering, although very biblical, is not about salvation or how holy and righteous we are. I do believe a true Christian will want to study out scripture though and it’s not something to be easily dismissed. Read more

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. There are a few denominations where this practice is a part of their faith statement but for most it will still be on a church-by-church basis. Read more
