Rapper Kanye West’s wife Kim Kardashian West has come out and announced that her husband Kanye West wants to set up his own church amidst a new religion and faith he wants to spearhead.
The ‘Bound 2’ rapper is keen to launch his own religious organisation based on his weekly concerts, which he calls Sunday Service, and has reportedly bought a plot of land near his home in Los Angeles so that he can build “pods” for his followers to stay in for a “few weeks at a time” while they focus on his new modern faith.

A source reported that: Kanye wants to develop a Church which introduces a new way to celebrate faith, bringing religion into the 21st century.
“His faith is massively important to him and he thinks this is the way to engage young people. He thinks it will surpass Hillsong, which has churches in 21 countries and is hugely popular in Los Angeles with the likes of Justin Bieber.
He wants to build temporary habitable pods where followers of his church can live for a few weeks at a time. They are insanely intricate and expensive but it would give ease of access for his Sunday Service.”

And the 42-year-old star’s new idea will no doubt go down well with his wife Kim Kardashian West as she recently praised his weekly service and said the musical gathering is intended to be healing for the participants, rather than “preaching.”
The 38-year-old reality TV star said: “It’s honestly more like a healing experience for my husband. It’s just music; there’s no sermon.”
