Tyson, pastor of Placerita Bible Church in Santa Clarita, California, said West won’t even allow people to curse around him—and he confirmed that the performer only wants to sing gospel music moving forward.

The preacher also shared the story behind how he first met West, explaining that the rapper randomly visited his church of around 300 members in May, and the two quickly struck up a friendship.

“[West said], ‘I was just under the weight of my sin and I was being convicted that I was running from God, and I knew I needed to make things right, so I came to Christ—I came out of darkness and came into the light,'” Tyson recounted.

The pastor recalled spending three hours with West during their first meeting. Tyson said he went through the gospel and explained “that Christ came to die” for sinners and that “by repenting and believing in him we can have eternal life.”

As for Tyson, he has kept his commitment to help Kanye.

“[I told him], ‘As long as you’re professing Christ and living for Him, I’m here to help you,'” he said.
