The Holy Spirit is certainly still working in today's world. While conversion stories like those of Brian "Head" Welch are widely publicized, others are just as radical, but not as well-known.
One of these lesser heard, but similarly powerful, stories is that of Devon Glenn. Glenn was the drummer, and a founding member, of the rock band Buckcherry. In the 90s, Glenn played massive shows jamming to the band's number one hit "Lit Up" -- a staple of the late 90's alt/rock scene. The song glorifies cocaine usage as the chorus simply goes, "I love the cocaine; I love the cocaine. Mama can't you wait?" Buckcherry broke up in 2002, but later reformed in 2005. Glenn didn't rejoin the band, but instead set off on another path. In 2014, Devon Glenn accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and began doing missions work. He is currently living in Japan with his family continuing missions, planting churches, and helping to fight the massive suicide problem. However, in 2017, God began to renew Glenn's passion for music and he started writing music with Chris Deming. These two felt an instant connection and, along with a few other members, Glorious Encounter was born with a vision and goal to "release the presence and creativity of God through discipleship and music." While Devon Glenn became famous because of a song about cocaine, the true star in his story is the redeeming power and nature of our God; He can change and use any of us to carry His word to the nations.
