Kanye's invitation to Lakewood

Lakewood Pastor Joel Osteen invited West to his church about two weeks ago. It was soon after the release of the rapper’s gospel album called “Jesus is King.”

"It’s only available digitally right now," said Cris Acuna of Cactus Records. "But we’ve had several people asking about it.”

Acuna has also been a longtime Kanye West fan. But she isn’t planning to make the short drive to Lakewood Church this weekend.

“I have many reservations about the whole thing," Acuna said. "It seems kind of weird to me.”

West has conducted Sunday services on his own property in California in addition to venues around the country. He's even performed on the street.
