More than 1,000 people at Kanye West’s latest Sunday Service event in Louisiana have committed their lives to Jesus Christ, according to a pastor at the event.
The service, which West’s pastor, Adam Tyson, described as an evangelistic outreach/worship event, was held at Bethany Church, Baton Rouge, and was said to have attracted about 6,000 people.
In a post on Instagram, Curvine Brewington, pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, said: “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 and Savior!”
Brewington went on to say, “I danced, wept, stood in awe of God’s redemptive work, and can honestly say that tonight I witnessed a new wave of REVIVAL first hand.”
Recently it was reported that Google searches for “Jesus,” “Jesus is Lord” and “What do Christians believe?” spiked with the release of West’s gospel-themed album, Jesus Is King.
Following the release of the album, the American Bible Society (ABS) set up a website offering free Bibles to Kanye fans interested in learning more about Jesus.
Since the website was established, the American Bible Society has given away more than 2,000 free Bibles to Kanye fans.
