I took 20 kids to a Christian Rock Concert in Tacoma. I was totally shocked. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen. The opening band was so horrible that we almost left. When the main band took the stage my mouth dropped on the floor. The lights went out and the fog machine churned out it's atmosphere. Out of the mist came a guitar player who just JAMMED. Better than I had ever heard before. He was dressed in leather and a Harley shirt. I couldn't believe my ears. The band kicked in and for 20 minutes I stood stunned that Christians could rock so hard. The only Christians I had ever seen were geeks and bible thumpers. I was amazed. Darrell Mansfield, the lead singer, stopped the concert for a moment and asked the crowd to sit down for a moment.


Darrell Mansfield







I was surprised to see all the kids sit down. He was dressed in leather pants and a white T-shirt. His hair was long and stringy. He didn't look like a preacher. He started sharing out of the Holy Bible. He told how Jesus Christ had come to this Earth and died on the cross for us. He then told how the devil was a liar and wanted to see me in Hell.

He started talking about the bands that I listened to, he knew alot of them. He said that they were as desperate for an answer as anyone else. He told me that he had tried to commit suicide when he was younger, he turned his wrists out to us to reveal scars on them. Jesus had transformed this guy into a very cool person. He was so real.

Jesus is




Darrell finally asked us to pray. Man was I scared. He asked if anyone needed to get right with God. I knew I needed to. I wasn't about to go forward and pray with him. I said the prayer at my seat. Half of my kids went forward to pray. This is what I said,"Jesus, if your real, I need you. I ask you to come into my heart. Forgive me for all the stupid things I have done and thought. I believe you died on the cross for me and then you rose again. Be the Lord of my life and help me to live my life for you. Amen"




I said the prayer and no fireworks went off, but something did happen. I was born again. I had become one of them... a CHRISTIAN. OH NO!!!

I never smoked another joint, nor did I drink ever again. I struggled with pornography but thanks to God and other men of God who I have been accountable to, I am delivered of that as well. God is amazing. You don't try Him, you live Him.


God delivered me out of Rock n Roll and wrote my name on the Heavenly roll. He can do the same for you. If you ask him. Romans 10:9-13 "...If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved!"


I still Rock, but now I Rock For Jesus!


Here are three things I reccomend to have a victorious Christian Life:

1. Pray to God everyday. Talk with Him

2. Read the Bible, a little each day, and do what it says.

3. Go to a radical onfire bible believeing Church. Not one that is stuffy and boring, but one where Jesus is alive in the people you see going there. One where they carry their bibles, and talk about their faith in public. One where people live what they preach.

Please if you need prayer or want to ask questions don't hesitate to email me.

Praise God!
