Rock Star Alice Cooper reveals how God saved him from being a drug addict and turning him into a youth minister.

Alice Cooper

Vincent Damon Furnier, popularly known as Alice Cooper, is an actor, songwriter, and singer. He has made a name in the music industry with his raspy voice and his different musical styles, including hard rock, and heavy metal rock.

Alice often features a gruesome image in his performance and has created a “bad boy” reputation for himself. If we also add to it his dark lyrics, no one would have guessed that he would soon become a follower of Christ and a youth minister. However, God encountered him with His grace and drastically changed him.

Former Drug Addict

In an interview with Greg Laurie, Alice revealed how his relationship with Jesus started. And how that relationship led him to minister to youths who have also been enslaved by drug addiction.

“I knew that there had to come [to] a point where either I accepted Christ and started living that life, or if I died in this [sin], I was in a lot of trouble,” he said. “And that’s what really motivated me.”

Solid Rock

In 1995, the rock artist started Solid Rock teen center to help troubled teens. The idea came after Alice Cooper witnessed two teens exchanging drugs in front of him.

“I watched a couple of 16-year-old kids do a drug deal on the corner and I went, ‘How does that kid not know he might be a great guitar player? Or that other kid might be a drummer?’” Alice asked himself. “And it just struck me right then: Why don’t we open that, give them that alternative to going there?”

Alice founded the teen center together with other Christian men, and they believe it was God who led him to start the ministry.

“We’re all Christian guys and Lord told us to do it. So we just obeyed. That’s all.”
