The General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry worldwide, Pastor (Dr) W.F Kumuyi celebrates his 80th birthday today.
Williams Folorunso Kumuyi was born on June 6th, 1941 into a Christian home at Erin-Ijesa, Osun State. As a little boy, he attended the Anglican Church with his parents and he had a rich Bible experience.
After graduating from Tai Solarin’s Mayflower in 1961, Kumuyi returned and taught Mathematics in his alma mater. He went on to become a Mathematics lecturer at the University of Lagos after he bagged a first-class honours degree in Mathematics at the University of Ibadan. He also finished as the over all best student that year–1967.
In April 1964, he gave his life to Jesus Christ and was introduced to the Apostolic Faith Church. Due to certain exigencies, he left the church and founded his own ministry in 1973 as a small Bible study group with about 15 members.
In 1980, he married his first wife, Madam Abiodun Kumuyi who went to be with the lord in 2009. In 2010, he married his second wife, Madam Elizabeth Kumuyi.
Till date, Pastor Kumuyi is highly revered for his uncompromising stand on Holiness and Born Againism.
His church is currently the third-largest in the world.
