Guitarist of "Korn" band told the youth about evangelism
The missionary organization Steiger held in Kiev (Ukraine) on March 13th a youth Provoke & Inspire meeting. The special guest of the meeting was the guitarist and one of the founders of the nu-metal band "Korn" Bryan "Head" Welch, who repented in 2005, Christian Telegraph reports according to the Christian Megaportal invictory.com.
In addition to Brian "Head" Welch, other speakers were the frontman of the "No More Music" band, the main coordinator of "Wire and Inspire" Ben Pearce, and the frontman of the group "Nuteki" Misha Nokarashvili. The purpose of the event was to encourage creative youth to carry the gospel through their creativity.
The speakers noted that today there is a shortage of Christian musicians who are spreading the Gospel on a big stage. Ben Pearce stressed, that musicians who carry the gospel through creativity, often feel lonely because they are not supported by other Christians.
Misha Nokarashvili noted the importance of God's will in his life.
"It does not matter what I want. What is important is what God wants from me," the singer said. "If you trust your life to God, sit on the passenger seat and just fasten the strap."
Brian "Head" Welch spoke about how he came to God and how he started his ministry after leaving the "Korn". He also explained why a few years later he returned to the band and told how he carried the gospel while he was in the group. The musician noted that God wants Christianity to get out of his well-being.
"When you are uncomfortable, then God will do something," said Welch.
Ben Pearce noted that many musicians lost what God gave them, because they do not want to leave their comfort zone. He urged young people to be ready for anything, for the sake of fulfilling their vocation.
The meeting in Kiev was held as part of the international Provoke & Inspire tour. The tour is composed of a series of meetings designed to encourage Christian creative youth to use their talents to preach the gospel.
