"[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."

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