Kanye West addresses Joel Osteen's church: I'm 'in service to God'


Kanye West addressed parishioners at Joel Osteen’s Houston megachurch on Sunday where he said his recent spiritual awakening has made him realize he’s no longer in the service of fame and money but “in service to God.”



West spoke to a crowd of around 16,000 people at Lakewood Church’s 11 a.m. service. During a 20-minute interview with Osteen before about 16,000 Lakewood Church parishioners, West told the packed crowd about his recent conversion to Christianity and how God has been inspiring him. “I know that God has been calling me for a long time and the devil has been distracting me for a long time,” West said as he stood next to Osteen. The rapper also shared that at his lowest point, when he was hospitalized in 2016 after a “mental breakdown,” God “was there with me, sending me visions, inspiring me.”
