A Soldier's Life

Havenwood Baptist Church hosted a presentation on the armor of God by Colden Hershey of Castra Ministries Sunday, June 23rd. Mr. Hershey is passionate about the study of Ancient History, and the life of a Roman soldier during the 1st– 3rd centuries A.D. He presented a variety of Biblical topics from a historical perspective of the life and times of early Christians, and the Roman legions who occupied the area during that time. He arrived for the presentation in full armor, with weapons and other related articles of the period to display with soldier’s gear for a greater educational experience. His wife Heather showed an amazing collection of ancient musical instruments as well.
Mr. Hershey holds a Masters degree in Ancient/Classical History, Bachelors degrees in History and in Biblical Studies, with a minor in New Testament Greek. His wife carries a Bachelors in English Education and minor in Music. Together, their love for history, God's Word and teaching has developed into this unique ministry with the hope of giving believers a deeper understanding of the Bible and early Christian history.
