Mark Minnick on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 (Sermon Series)

Head Covering Sermons

Preacher: Mark Minnick | Sermons: 8 | Year preached: March-June 2015  | Church: Mount Calvary Baptist Church

Dr. Mark Minnick

After completing an M.A. in Bible from Bob Jones University in May 1977, Mark was burdened to continue his education. While continuing to pastor a small church in North Carolina, he began pursuing a doctoral degree. During this time, he accepted a call from Mount Calvary Baptist Church (Greenville, SC) to serve as a part-time associate pastor along with then-Pastor Jesse Boyd, a man with 40 years of pastoral ministry experience whose influence on Mark had already been formative. Soon he began teaching full-time at BJU, eventually teaching both Bible and Homiletics on the undergraduate and graduate levels. After three additional years, he completed a PhD in New Testament Interpretation in 1983 with a dissertation on “The Matthean Genealogy and Birth Account of Jesus Christ.”

For the next five years, he taught full-time and faithfully assisted Pastor Boyd as one “who poured water on the hands of Elijah” (2 Kings 3:11). In May 1989, Pastor Boyd handed over to Mark the reins of the ministry of Mount Calvary Baptist Church. At this point, he greatly reduced his University teaching role and became the first full-time pastor in the church’s 27-year history.

Since that time, God has expanded Mark’s ministry and provided even broader opportunities of service for him. He and his wife, Linda, have raised three girls, two of whom are now married. Mark is not only a pastor to his congregation. He regularly visits international mission fields to aid and encourage missionaries, serves on the boards of Gospel Fellowship Association Missions and the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship, and serves as a member of The Committee on the Bible’s Text and Translation.

It’s difficult to put into words how grateful we are that Pastor Mark Minnick preached through this section of Scripture. He goes through this passage slowly and with great exegetical care. It truly is one of our favorite sermon series on this passage. It is a must hear series and I’m sure after you listen you’ll want to pass it on to others too.

The Headcovering (Sermon)

Head Covering Sermons

Preacher: Rev. Colin Mercer | Sermon Length: 43 min | Year preached: February 2003

Rev. Colin Mercer

Rev. Colin Mercer is the senior minister of Faith Free Presbyterian Church. He and his family moved to Greenville from Northern Ireland in September, 2009. He was converted to Christ at the age of eight. He commenced attending his local Free Presbyterian Church in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, as a young teenager and soon became involved in the ministry of that congregation. He served as a Sunday School teacher and participated in Youth meetings and open air services. In 1988 he was called by God to prepare for the gospel ministry and consequently in September 1989 commenced studies in the Theological Hall of the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster. On the completion of his studies he accepted a call from the Castlederg congregation and was ordained and installed on 21st January 1994. In 1999 Rev. Mercer moved to Mourne Free Presbyterian Church, and accepted the Lord’s call to Faith in May 2009.

Mr. Mercer and his wife, Heather, have two daughters, Lois is a student at Bob Jones University and Hannah attends Bob Jones Academy.

The subject of the headcovering has caused great controversy within the church of Christ. Strange as it seems, many believers accept the latter part of 1 Corinthians 11 but have grave difficulty when it comes to the opening verses. However, obedience to God is important on every matter – even on the matter of the headcovering.
