Kanye West is ‘Kanyeing’ again. This time he’s doing it in the name of the Lord. West’s recent Sunday Services have already been garnering tons of attention. Now the rapper plans to take them nationwide, reported Page Six.

To date, Kanye has had services at his home, in Chicago where he grew up, in Atlanta where he was born, in his new home of Cody, Wyoming, in Detroit and in Queens, New York. He’s even renamed his new album “Jesus Is King.”

During the Sunday Service held in Queens, many regular churchgoers walked out according to The Daily Beast. Despite, the services including singing from a gospel choir, praying and sometimes preaching, the members of the predominately Black Greater Allen A.M.E> Cathedral weren’t impressed.

However, there were a ton of non-regular church attendees who seemed to love Kanye’s service. One Twitter user who went to West’s Atlanta service wrote, “I don’t care what ANYONE says. Kanye West had an encounter with God and God will use Him to influence our generation for His glory and that’s PERIOD. you don’t have to believe it or agree, but nothing is too hard for God or no one is too far for God to reach.”

Kanye has even applied for a trademark for “Sunday Service” which some speculate may be in effort to create a religious-based line of clothes.

Though not everyone may agree with his spiritual services, Kanye said he’s returned to his spiritual roots.

“Reconnecting with my faith has helped me be a better husband and father,” West said.
