Megadeth - Bassist Wants To Be A Lutheran Pastor

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Megadeth's bassist Dave Ellefson is an online student in the Specific Ministry Program at Concordia Seminary.

"Most people want to be a rock star," said Jon Bjorgaard, pastor of the Lutheran church in Scottsdale, AZ, where Ellefson and his family are congregants. "David's a rock star who wants to become a pastor."

Ellefson grew up attending Lutheran services in his native Minnesota, but when he moved to L.A. and joined Megadeth, he was lured into the rock & roll lifestyle. At 25, he entered a 12-step recovery program and reconnected with his faith. When Bjorgaard asked the rocker to start a contemporary worship service, he began performing for the church.

Ellefson commented: "For a Christmas service, I remixed some classics, not quite in a Megadeth fashion, but in a pretty heavy rock fashion. Some people want to morph things together into one, but I have a hand in both worlds. I love praise and worship music, and I love heavy metal."
