HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Pastor William Kumuyi Celebrates His 80th Birthday Today (Drop Your Well Wishes)
Kumuyi was born into a Christian family in Orunwa, Ogun State, the western part of Nigeria.
He completed his secondary school education in 1961 at Mayflower School in Ikenne, Ogun State, from where he proceeded to the University of Ibadan and in 1967 graduated with a first-class honors degree in mathematics where he graduated as overall best graduating student in that year.
He subsequently took a post-graduate course in Education at the University of Lagos. He became a born-again Christian in April 1964.
Kumuyi began a Bible study group with 15 students who had come to him for Bible training.
This training became the foundation of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry. In 1975, Kumuyi was expelled from the Apostolic Faith Church for preaching on the baptism of the Holy Spirit. He continued his independent ministry, which in 1982 became the Deeper Life Bible Church.
As at 2005, the Christian ministry is said to have over 800,000 affiliates
The Deeper Christian Life Ministry founded by Kumuyi has the international headquarters of its church in Gbagada, Lagos. The church auditorium at the international headquarters could sit up to 30,000 worshippers; it was described by experts as the fourth largest in the world. The auditorium was inaugurated on the 24th of April, 2018; the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, attended the inauguration.
Other notable places of worship of his Christian ministry include: the Deeper Life Conference Centre in Ogun State at Kilometre 42, Lagos–Ibadan Expressway and the International Bible Training Centre (IBTC) at Ayobo, Lagos
Happy Birthday To Well Respected Man Of God
