Kanye West will reportedly join forces with pastor Joel Osteen again in the new year.

Last month, the Jesus Is King rapper stopped by Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, to speak about his spiritual journey. Now he’s anticipated to join Osteen on his America’s Night of Hope tour stop at New York City’s Yankee Stadium on May 2, 2020, according to TMZ.

The America’s Night of Hope tour is described on Osteen’s website as featuring “inspirational nights of hope, worship and encouragement in 11 cities across America.” TMZ reports that at the Yankee Stadium event, Osteen, 56, will share his sermon and then let West, 42, and his choir perform.

While speaking at Osteen’s service on Nov. 17, West said he knows “that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time.”

“When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there’s documentation of me drawing a church and [wanting to] start a church in the middle of Calabasas,” he said, referring to his 2016 hospitalization during his Saint Pablo tour.

West, who has spoken at length in recent months about his faith, went on to share that despite “all of that arrogance and cockiness that y’all have seen from me” in the past, “God is now using him.”

“Because every time I stand up, I feel that I’m standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying, ‘I’m here in service to God and no weapon formed against me shall prosper,’” he said.
