Kim Kardashian sat down on The View earlier this weekend and revealed that Kanye West initially started his Sunday Service sermons to "heal himself." Watch the interview above.

Since West embarked on his Sunday Service journey, the events have evolved into major pop culture moments, drawing participation from Brad Pitt, A$AP Rocky, Tyler, the Creator, and many more industry faces. As it turns out, however, the idea had pretty humble beginnings.

"Kanye started this, I think, just to heal himself," Kardashian explained. "It was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family. He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ."

Dubbing the events a "musical ministry," Kardashian outlines the sessions as a Christian service where they "talk about Jesus and God." While it's not a proper church, West does invite guest pastors from time to time.

"For the most part, it's just a musical ministry," she says. "[West] doesn't have his 501(c)(3)" — registered nonprofit organizations exempt from federal tax — "yet to make it an official church, but it is for God and it is a Christian church. It started off healing for him and it's become something that he really wants to share for everybody else."
