Thousands of people gathered and gave their lives to Jesus at Kanye West’s ‘Sunday Service’ in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
It was a last minute service, with no stage, lights, or fancy audio equipment, with Jonathan Stockstill, pastor of Bethany Church, introducing the ace rapper to the crowd.
“Can we hear it for Jesus?” Stockstill asked. “He is king tonight.”
West stood between wooden crosses, and sang “Closed on Sunday,” with his daughter North sitting on top of his shoulders.
“You my Chick-Fil-A,” West rapped. “Hold the selfies. Put the ’gram away. Get your family. Y’all hold hands and pray. … Raise our sons. Train them in the faith, through temptations. Make sure they’re wide awake. Follow Jesus. Listen and obey.”
Curvine Brewington, a musician and pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisana, who was present at the event, took to Instagram to tell the world about the change he witnessed in West.
“If you’ve ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this #sundayservice project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @rebeccabradley__ during the altar call,” sharing a photo that showcased a large crowd with their hands in the air. “YES, I said ALTAR CALL,” he added.

Brewington said that thousands lifted their hands in the air in worship, and Jesus Christ’s name was lifted high, and powerful prayers were said, he shared.
“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,” Brewington wrote. “In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I personally witnessed over 1,000 individuals accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!”
He said, “the Spirit of the Living God was indeed present.” and even as many still doubt if the rapper has really changed, he said, “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,” Brewington concluded.
“Incredible night,” the musician added to an Instagram story. “Such an honor to witness what God is doing firsthand.” Brewington’s wife also took to Instagram, writing, “This man met JESUS and He changed everything, and now he is telling everyone!”
