Kanye West reportedly wants to start his own church

2019 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival - Weekend 2 - Day 3

Reports say that Kanye West is thinking abut starting his own church!

Since the beginning of the year, West has been having Sunday services. This past Easter Sunday he took his service to one of the biggest festivals in the country, Coachella. Normally, his services are just for his more A-list friends, but when he brought it to Coachella, sources say over 50,000 people were in attendance.

West is reportedly very serious about his faith. While he believes in the healing power of music, he also believes that God can heal people's brokenness and their issues. The Grammy award winning artist says he just wants to encourage and minister to people.

When asked what his church would be like, sources say, "It wouldn't be the traditional, 3 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."

Reports say West wants his kids to be raised in faith, and the best way for him to do that is to live out his faith. His wife, Kim Kardashian-West is proud of her husband. She says," It's honestly more like a healing experience for my husband. It's just music: there's no sermon. It's definitely something he believes in - Jesus - and there's a Christian vibe, but there's no preaching. It's just a very spiritual experience."

As of right now, no official plans for the church are actually in the works.
