Kanye West has been quite a busy man lately. Within the last few months, he’s executive produced Big Sean’s Detroit 2, appeared on Ty Dolla $ign’s latest project and collaborated with Da Baby. Not to mention, he’s a father, husband and fashion designer who is currently running a campaign to become the next president of the United States.

Now, he’s ready to instill faith and religion in the minds of the youth with the “latest initiative for education.” On Thursday (Oct. 29), the Jesus is King rapper unveiled his Yeezy Christian Academy with an advertisement featuring his children North and Saint West, nephew Mason Disick and niece Penelope Disick. The children, all donning blue shirts with the academy’s acronym, are heard talking about Jesus and his love for everyone.

“Dear Future, I still believe in you. We still believe in you. We believe in our families,” the various children said. “In our future, we will heal. Our future has homes for everyone. Our future has food for everyone. Our future has love. Jesus loves everyone. Let’s lead with love! Our future is waiting on us!”

West’s academy aligns with his mission to spread the word of Jesus around the United States. Earlier this month, he released his first campaign ad focused on faith and families.

“We, as a people, will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including, of course, prayer. Through prayer, faith can be restored. We, as a people, are called to a greater purpose than ourselves,” West said in the ad, noting that faith will help Americans pursue “the right goals,” do “the right things” and be “the kind of people God intends us to be.”

West has even expressed his desires to create JesusTok, “a Christian-monitored” version of TikTok “that feels safe for young children and the world.”
