Great men are celebrated while they are still alive. They are not celebrated based on what they acquired but on the impact they made in the life of other people around them.
Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi was born on June 6th, 1941 into a Christian family in Erin-Ijesha, Osun State, Nigeria.
He completed his secondary school education in 1961 and proceeded to university of Ibadan where he graduated in 1967 with a first-class honours in Mathematics.
In April 1964, while in university, he totally surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and became born-again.
Having served as lecturer in University of Lagos, in 1973 he started a small Deeper Life Bible Study group with as little as 15 University students in his apartment which today have grown to millions of members all over Africa and outside African continent.
In 2005, he hosted his first Africa-wide crusade in Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Port Harcourt and the crusade was transmitted and watched live all over the world making him the first Nigerian Pastor to do so.
As an Apostle, teacher, evangelist, preacher, pastor, author, televangelist, mentor, instructor, to mention but few, Pastor William F. Kumuyi through the grace of God has transformed millions of lives all over the world through his systematic and expository teaching of the world of God.
Today, I celebrate the man that his exemplary lifestyle and practical life has brought conscious change in my life and the life of those who are under his teaching.
Today mark his 75 years of existence on earth and 43 years he founded Deeper Life Christian Life Ministry otherwise known as Deeper Life Bible Church; yet, he labour more than those below his age.
I pray that God will strengthen your born and keep you stronger and stronger everyday.
I celebrate and honour you sir. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY MENTOR AND TEACHER.
