Kanye West to Bring ‘Sunday Service’ to Joel Osteen’s Houston Megachurch

Kanye West is bringing “Sunday Service” to Houston, Texas.

TMZ reports the controversial rapper will be at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church on Sunday Nov. 17 for the 11 a.m. service. And he’ll sit down with the famed pastor at the pulpit for a conversation that a church rep said will last for 15 to 20 minutes.

The discussion will go into how West overcame certain troubles in his life, and he’ll also talk about his days before finding God and afterward.

It’s been said the “College Dropout” creator won’t be performing at the 11 a.m. service, but he and his choir will do so later on during the 7 p.m. service.

West and Osteen have been talking on a regular basis as well, ever since the Chicago artist became a born-again Christian. And they’re also friends with each other.

Donald Iloff Jr., a Lakewood Church representative, confirmed the news of West’s visit.

“Joel is still putting his questions together, but he will talk about Kanye’s journey to his faith,” Iloff. told the Houston Chronicle. “Kanye and Joel are friends. He’s been wanting to come out for some time, and it just worked out for this weekend.”

Lakewood Church is said to have 45,000 members attend service each Sunday and 70,000 members in all. And Osteen has around 10 million people in the United States who watch his Sunday broadcast.

West, meanwhile, has been putting on his “Sunday Service” events since earlier this year when he began talking about devoting himself to God. The 42-year-old also said he was done making secular music, a little before he dropped his new album “Jesus is King” last month.
