The God of the Bible is the God “who was and is and is to come" and therefore rules over all of history (Rev 4:8). So, we thank God for His gracious provision and care for us as His church. We hope that the brief history below will help you get to know us better, but more so that it will result in thanksgiving to Him who reigns above.
History of Our Congregation
Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church, serving Broward County, was formed as a mission work in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church at the Presbytery of the South's meeting in April, 2007. Rev. David Smiley and Elder Al Hanna (of Providence OPC in Bradenton) and Rev. Bill Hobbs (of Calvary OPC in Tallahassee) were appointed as the overseeing session until God provided elders from within the congregation itself two years later.
On May 20, 2007, thirty-five people gathered to worship the Lord at its inaugural public worship service. Associate General Secretary of the Committee on Home Missions Rev. Richard Gerber presided. On August 12, 2007, twenty-five people were received as our first members.
On May 8, 2009, our congregation, until then a mission church, became a particular church of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. At the same time, Reverend Dr. Robert L. Reymond was received into the OPC Presbytery of the South by transfer of his credentials from the Presbytery of South Florida of the Presbyterian Church in America. Our first elders and deacons were also ordained and installed. Dr. Reymond served as stated supply of HTPC until his retirement in 2010.
In August of 2011, Rev. Chad Mullinix was called as the first full-time pastor of HTPC. He served as stated supply until ordained and installed as pastor on December 9, 2011. He is currently serving as pastor alongside ruling elder Bill Watson and deacons Anthony Burgos and Michael Summers who were both installed on February 16, 2014. God has been faithful to provide and care for His flock at Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church and is true to His promise to build His church and care for it as the Chief Shepherd.
