Civil War Reenactor Chaplain

Yesterday was the annual reenactment of the Battle of Olustee (a.k.a. Battle of Ocean Pond) here in my hometown.  I was not able to attend due to a full day of ministry opportunities in nearby Lake City, Florida.  The weather was great for the event and I understand the crowd was large.  In light of this event, I decided to go back into the JCEA archives and republish an interview from the March 2008 episode of Walking With The Giant podcast.  The video below allows you to hear the interview and view various photos from past reenactments.

Dr. James Gipson of Macclenny, Florida is a chaplain for various civil war reenactment calvary units including the Alabama Volunteer Brigade, the Tenth Tennessee Calvary, the Florida Division Calvary and the Winston Stephens SCV of Macclenny, Florida. He also pastors River City Family Church in Jacksonville, Florida. Dr. Gipson shares with us about this unique ministry opportunity.
