At Least 1,000 People Accept Christ at Kanye West’s Sunday Service

By Allyson Vannatta, Staff Writer

Over 1,000 people gave their lives to Christ at Kanye West’s impromptu Sunday Service over the weekend, according to multiple reports.

Thousands of people gathered on Friday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to worship with born-again rapper West.

West recently released the album “Jesus Is King,” that is taking the country by storm and spurring “awakening.”

DUCK DYNASTY alums Willie and Korie Robertson and their son, John Luke, journeyed to the service to support the work God is doing in West’s life.

“Straight up night of praise and worship with joy, humility, thankfulness, bold faith, and power. Jesus is King. His name was lifted high in this place. Yes, God, more of this,” Korie said.

John Luke captioned his Instagram post, “This is exactly what we have been praying for!”

Tonight, @candacebrewington & I got to experience Kanye West’s Sunday Service at @bethany_church in Baton Rouge. If you’ve ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this #sundayservice project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL. 😲 Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given. In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, i witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior! 😱🙌🏾 Say what you want, & think what you want…. But trust me when I tell you – The Spirit of the Living God was indeed present. I danced, wept, stood in awe of God’s redemptive work, & can honestly say that tonight I witnessed a new wave of REVIVAL first hand. #Jesusisking • Isaiah 43:19 “Behold I do a NEW thing. • 1 Corinthians 1:27 “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. • #excited #inspired 📸 @the.smitan

West hosted the service outside of Bethany Church with none of the frills of standard concerts.

There were no stages or video boards to assist those who were farther away.

West opened the service with popular song “Closed On Sunday,” according to Baton Rouge’s  The Advocate.

In addition to the thousands of people who joined in the worship, West brought his 6-year-old daughter North, and 3-year-old son Saint. West expressed a recent recommitment to his family as part of his salvation.

At one point during the service, West put the children on his shoulders so they could take in the environment.

West launched his Sunday Services earlier this year after a word from the Lord.

West said the Lord spoke to him when he was hospitalized for “dehydration” and “Exhaustion” in 2017. West felt the Lord tell him to start a church in Calabasas, California, which later became the popular Sunday Service.

“God put it on my heart, taking me to new levels,” West said.

West has hosted the services in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Dayton, and Coachella (a music festival held in California.

Though the album has received mixed reviews, West is glorifying the name of God and proclaiming it across the nation).
