Joel Osteen confirmed to KPRC2 he is expecting Kanye West to visit Lakewood Church in the next few weeks.
TMZ first reported the pair are in communication and often discuss faith. Osteen believes West’s life is rooted in faith and love, and is proud that the rapper has overcome the sometimes difficult obstacles of the entertainment industry, and has come out a born-again Christian, according to TMZ.
“There is no scheduled date for Kanye to come to Lakewood. Joel and Kanye do talk, in fact as recently as two weeks ago. Kanye does plan to come to a service in the near future, but no date has been set yet,” Senior Executive of Joel Osteen Ministries, Donald Illoff said.
West was set to release a gospel album titled “Jesus is King” at midnight on Friday. The release was delayed to allow the artist the opportunity to correct mixes on three of the tracks.
