Brian ‘Head’ Welch: “I just tried Jesus and found the answer for life”

After the Madrid show of ‘Nu Metal’ band, Korn, the guitar player met a group of fans and told them how Christ changed his life. Watch the video.

Guitar player Brian ‘Head’ Welch left ‘Nu Metal’ band Korn in 2005 after realising that “my dreams of being a rock star became true, but something was missing inside me.”



After discovering, in his own words, “the living water that Jesus was offering”, he rejoined the band in 2014.



Korn played in Madrid on March 17, and Welch used the trip to Spain’s capital to share his faith with a group of fans after the concert.



“We all thirst after things that don’t satisfy us. We want things in life that we think are going to be good for us but in the end, they harm us, they leave us empty.”



Welch read the passage of the Gospel of John that describes Jesus’ encounter with a Samaritan woman, and compared the scene to his own process of discovering God.





 



THE ENCOUNTER THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING



“I was like a shell with nothing inside. I got invited to church, and I asked Jesus to come in. And then that living water, which is a Spirit, began to make me feel really alive”, he said.



“It wasn’t a religion at all, it was a personal thing what happened. That’s what I am talking about, it’s a personal relationship with God.”



Korn’s guitar player added that in the world of rock there are increasingly more people finding Jesus Christ, even in bands like Metallica and Slayer. “I am not the only weird one”, Brian said with a smile.



“Don’t let men spoil your relationship with God. I will tell you one thing, He is real. I used to think that this was none-sense. But then I just tried it, and found the answer for life.”



Welch later spoke to several people that had listened to him. “My life is half over now, but I know that I have eternal life. Eternal life doesn’t start when you die. That’s what Jesus was talking about, you can have eternal life now”, he added.



 



A SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY



Valerie Acosta helped organise the meeting with Brian after the Madrid show. “Welch is a member of an international ministry, Come&Live, that aims to bring the gospel to the spheres of music and the arts”, she told Protestante Digital.

“They want to inspire artists who are Christians to use the platform they have to share the gospel with others. Brian told us that he uses the opportunity after every concert to meet with a group of fans to tell them about his personal experience and tell them about Jesus”, Acosta added. She and his husband are involved in a group which aims to propel the presence of the gospel in the artistic sphere.



“After the show was over, we all met in the facilities, the people who came were very receptive”, and after Welch shared, “some came closer to ask him to pray, some were really touched. We could share our details with some of the young people there who wanted to know more about Jesus”, she explains.



The experience has also encouraged them to continue their approach to share the gospel through and with artists: “Sometimes we believe that people in Spain do not want to hear the gospel, but there are opportunities to speak about Jesus even in places like a Nu Metal show.”
