Mr. Brian "Head" Welch's visit to the Hillsborough County DOC to speak with the inmates
Mr. Brian “Head” Welch from the band “Korn” offered to come to the facility on Friday, 1/24/2020 and share his story of recovering from drug use with the help of his faith in Jesus Christ. Mr. Brian Head Welch hosted the presentation at HCDC in which 36 inmates was in attendance for the presentation. The presentation was hosted by three volunteers (Photo 2) at HCDC, CEO Eric Spofford and Justin Lever Admissions Representative at Starting Point Sober Housing. The presentation at the jail lasted approximately two hours in entirety.
Mr. Welch spoke to the inmates for approximately 45 minutes telling of his addiction while touring with the band until a near life tragic event triggered his recovery. Mr. Welch enjoyed speaking to the inmates to share his story and to encourage them all that it is not too late for recovery and to bring Jesus Christ into their world. All of the inmates in attendance received a signed autobiography from Mr. Brian “Head” Welch and had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Welch.
