Do you know of any rock or metal musicians who later became a Christian worship leader or a pastor in a church? Because the rocker-to-preacher pipeline is very real.
Indeed, it’s so real that we decided to round up a list of 10 rockers who became preachers in some way or another — whether as a reverend, minister of music, or some other evangelical position. And they didn’t all originate from Christian rock bands, either — although that’s (unsurprisingly) a thread several share.
See the list near the bottom of this post.
We’ve heard all about the famous rockers who later publicly converted to Christianity — Bob Dylan, Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine and others. But what about the rockers who put their money where their mouths are, and actually got ordained to go out and minister to others? Or led throngs of fellow worshippers in Sunday services? Now that’s dedication to the cause.
