Soul of the Warrior Productions
A ministry outreach begun from members of Legio VI
Ferrata Fidelas Constans, a Christian Re-Enactor Group of Roman Soldiers. Founded in 2000, Legio VI was created when
several of us, drafted for a new church drama, became fascinated by the Centurion who was at the cross. Years and tons
of research later, and now outfitted with authentially recreated legionary equipment (and a great deal of Prayer), Soul of
the Warrior Productions was formed. What do we do? Ideally, we come in in the midst of a sermon on "What
would you have done, if you had been at the Cross?" preached by your own minister. "Taking" over the church in true
Roman Style, with 4-10 fully armed and armoured Roman Legionaries, the Centurion demands the right to address the assembly
and proceeds to tell them the story, from his perspective. A Soldier, doing his duty. As Centurion Justus tells
the story, the soldiers present the elements of the Crucifixion, the scourge, the titulus, the water bowl of Pilate, the robe,
nails, hammer, crown of thorns, and the spear. As we conclude the story, Justus challenges the crowd to pray with him
at which point he and the soldiers kneel in prayer, and the pastor takes over in praying. During the prayer we quietly
leave, allowing the pastor time to have an altar call, prayer time, or worship period, without our distracting the Spirit.
Ideally, no one will know who we were but the Pastor and a few ushers, allowing the focus to be on Christ. This service
works particularly well when no one knows we are coming but those who must, as it makes it easier to create a sense of wonder
and awe, and take the people back 2000 years.
Many of our members attend services at area churches, where
we are also committed to drama ministry particularly (for obvious reasons) the Easter Dramas, an intensly real "Living Crucifixiomn".
We also have a retired minister who serves as our camp chaplain. We always maintain a Christian atmosphere, wether we
are camping for fun at a re-enactment, or presenting our ministry.
We are always looking for a few good men or women willing to
help out, denomination is not an issue! If you believe Christ was the son of God and died for your sins, we can use
you! We do more than just Drama, we have good Chrisitan FUN!!!
