Kanye West’sEaster Sunday Service at the second weekend of Coachella left him so inspired that he is reportedly considering starting his own church.
“Say what you want about Kanye, but he really does want to help people who need support,” one source tellsPEOPLE, noting that West is aiming to “share his journey.”
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.
Ye’s Sunday Service at Coachella drew a massive crowd. The event was livestreamed and DMX even dropped in to deliver a prayer.
West “has talked about starting his own church, and what exactly that would be,” said the source but “no official plans” are in development.
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, previously notedduring an interviewwith Jimmy Kimmel that “There’s, actually, there’s no praying,” during Kanye’s Sunday Service. “There’s no sermon. There’s no word. It’s just music and it’s just a feeling.”
She described the Sunday Service as a “healing experience.”
“He has talked about starting his own church, and what exactly that would be,” said PEOPLE tipster. “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.”
West has been delivering his Sunday Service weekly since the beginning of the year.
