Head Pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Joel Osteen has extended an invite to “born-again” rapper, Kanye West to his church.
According to TMZ, Kanye and Joel speak from time to time on the phone, as recently as 2 weeks ago. We’re told Joel has invited Kanye to take a trip to Houston and experience his megachurch, Lakewood, where 45,000 people show up to pray every week.
The Sunday service reaches 100 MILLION homes in America and tens of millions more around the world.
Ye told Joel he’d love to attend a service, and he wouldn’t be the first celeb to do so. Oprah, Tyler Perry, the Clintons and many others have attended.
It is not clear if Kanye will be performing at the service, however, he could if he wanted to.
Joel genuinely likes Kanye and believes his life is rooted in faith and love. During their conversations, they talk a lot about faith and Joel’s proud that Kanye has traversed his sometimes difficult journey, and has come out believing in a higher power.
