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."

Random and pretty interesting, not a big deal tho. I have a friend who looks almost exactly like this dood, is a major heavy metal guitar shredder and also leads multiple christian based youth groups. We poke fun at him for it but at the end of the day hes still a chill guy and a good friend.

Faith can describe a person but doesnt completely define a person.

What the fuck?
"he entered a 12-step recovery program and reconnected with his faith."

Isn't this AA? They have all this conditioning, and people often end up brainwashed (but sober!) at the end. Like Peter Steele, who went full Christian Retard in his last period in life. I hope Dave still has some gray matter left in the brain and Megadeth music will be fine.

You guys must all be around 14 years old...seriously. Grow up.
