Beyoncé, Tina Knowles, Mathew Knowles, and Kelly Rowland have been long-time church members of St. John’s United Methodist Church in downtown Houston, where Rasmus serves as co-pastor.
Rasmus’ Miss-A-Meal campaign was featured on Beyoncé’s latest tour and helped to effectively impact communities around the country.
In 2008, Rasmus married Beyoncé and Jay Z, and he says the key to the longevity of their marriage centers around three major principles: trust, respect and love.
In an interview withe theGrio, Rasmus said he has not yet given Beyoncé and Jay Z any marriage advice but is confident that their marriage is stronger than ever.
“They’re friends,” Rasmus said. “Their relationship is healthy and life has been good.”
Beyoncé recently came under fire for some of the explicit lyrics and videos on her latest album, but Rasmus defended his longtime parishioner against critics.
