Kim Kardashian is ready to support husband Kanye West if he starts his own church. The reality star is said to be ‘100% on board’ with the rapper as he considers finding a permanent home for his weekly Sunday Services. But she doesn’t plan on being the ‘traditional pastors wife’, according to insiders who spoke to People. The mother-of-three is totally behind Kanye’s idea of a church. ‘Kim is 100 percent on board with this,’ the source said, ‘She’s a Christian, too, and she understands the importance of being spiritual.’ ‘She wouldn’t be a traditional “pastor’s wife” who organizes bake sales,’ the source explains. ‘But she will support him if he ever starts church. She’ll be there for it.’ This comes after Kanye’s big success with from his Coachella version of Sunday Service, held this past Easter, April 20. The Jesus Walks rapper, 41, is said to be ‘extremely passionate about his faith’ and wants to create a permanent place for his weekly event.
The Yeezus rapper has been hosting his own private version of what he calls Sunday Services near his Calabasas home since for the start of the year. But on Easter weekend, Kanye attracted huge crowds to a Coachella-hosted version of the service, with TMZ reporting that over 50k people flocked to the 9AM devotional, which was described as a non-denominational affair. Also spotted in the crowd: Chance The Rapper, Donald Glover, Kid Cudi, DMX, Travis Scott and Hailey Baldwin.
According to insiders the success of his event has prompted the star to think about a future for his faith-based celebrations. ‘He is extremely passionate about his faith and wants to share it more regularly with people,’ a source said, adding that Ye ‘spends a lot of time studying and praying, [so he] wants to share his journey.’ Another insider said a congregation has always been part of Ye’s vision. ‘Kanye has always said that his vision has always been for people from different backgrounds — races, ethnicities, beliefs, politics — to come together to worship God and love other people.’ ‘He understands brokenness and the need for healing, probably more than most people. He believes in the healing powers of music, but also believes that God can step in and heal people’s brokenness and their issues,’ the source said of the sometimes trouble talent. Describing the format of the service, the insider said: ‘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. He also wants his kids to be raised in faith, and the best way for him to do that is to live out his faith. Kim spoke about the services during an interview with Elle earlier this month, telling the magazine: ‘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 Christian experience.’ Photo Credit: Getty
