Kanye West's recent appearance at Pastor Joel Osteen's church in Houston, Texas is causing a stir online. 

The rapper, whose 'Sunday Service' sessions have become popular in America, stopped by Joel's Lakewood Church a few days ago to talk about his spirituality. 

Thousands of people packed the mega church to see the rapper. 

During his appearance, the 'Jesus Walks' hitmaker described himself as 'the greatest artist that God has ever created'.

"Now, the greatest artist that God has ever exist- uh, created is now working for Him... I know that God has been calling me for a long time and the Devil has been distracting me for a long time. And when I was at my lowest point, God was there with me, and sending me visions and inspiring me," he told churchgoers, according to TMZ

Kanye added that prison reform in America is his next calling. 

His wife Kim Kardashian has also been doing her bit for prison reform. The reality star visited the White House in 2018 to help secure Alice Marie Johnson's release during a discussion about prison reform. 

The 63-year-old grandmother spent 21-years in prison for a non-violent drug charge. She has since been released.

Kim, who is currently studying to become a lawyer, has helped other prisoners and has vowed to continue her prison reform fight.
