Kanye West wants to start his own church, and wants to minister to people from the pulpit as opposed to the studio.
Recall that Kanye West has been having jam sessions lately where he and his choir ‘take people to church’ by their powerful voices, and gospel songs they perform.
He’s been doing this every Sunday for a couple of months now, and even had a full on crowd at his ‘service’ at Coachella. The inspiration to start his own church, came after Kanye West held a “Sunday Service” performance on Easter morning at Coachella, which drew some 50,000 people.
A source who spoke to People, “he has talked about starting his own church, and what exactly that would be”. “It wouldn’t be the traditional, three-hymns-and-a-sermon thing. Instead, it would be a way to point people to Jesus through the arts and through a community of people who love and care for each other. He also wants his kids to be raised in faith, and the best way for him to do that is to live out his faith.”
“Kanye has always said that his vision has always been for people from different backgrounds—races, ethnicities, beliefs, politics—to come together to worship God and love other people,” the source said.
