Renowned Cleric and General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry (DCLM) worldwide, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, is billed to arrive in Ghana next week ahead of a-two-day explosive Miracle and Revival Service slated for the Deeper Life Campground, Brofoyedu, Kumasi.
Pastor W. F. Kumuyi – a former university don – was plucked from an alluring career in academia almost four decades ago to start the Deeper Life Bible Church which today boasts of several branches across the world.
The event which will hold from 2nd to 3rd February, 2013 would bring together tens of thousands of Christians from the northern sector – made up of the Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions – at Brofoyedru for the spiritual encounter.
“We are expecting real transformation of lives, that sinners and criminals will be touched to give their lives to Christ. We also expect practical demonstration of the power of God to heal the sick and deliver all the afflicted. We also expect huge crowd at the programme”, Pastor Francis Fosu, National Co-ordinator of the Deeper Life Campus Fellowhsip, said confidently in a brief interview.
Pastor Kumuyi last visited Kumasi in October 2006 where he ministered at a three-day crusade which recorded breathtaking miracles and major transformational experiences in the lives of many a sinner.
He said due to the importance the Deeper Christian Life Ministry attaches to the programme, other Christian churches within the northern sector have been invited to be part of it.
Another senior Pastor of the church, Pastor Joseph Hector Edusei, had this to say when approached for his expectations of the upcoming programme: “We need revival in this country and I believe this programme has come at an opportune time, even his feet touching Ghana should trigger a revival in the country.”
Pastor Edusei who is the Chief Accountant of the church added that, “I expect the programme to cause a wave of revival to unleash the fear of God upon us so that people will be upright in their dealings. Newness of life can’t be found in any store, only God gives. I pray that this man whom God has raised in this contemporary time will be used in an unusual way at this programme. In the areas of marriage, business and spirituality, I expect major breakthroughs by the end of this programme”
According to Regional Overseer for Kumasi South Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor E. K. Duodu, “we expect multitudes to come to the programme and taste the goodness of the lord. We believe that the lord will move mightily.”
Deeper Christian Life Ministry
In 1973, while serving as Maths Lecturer at The University of Lagos, W.F. Kumuyi started a Bible study group with 15 university students who had come to him requesting training in the Scriptures. By the early 1980’s that small group had grown to several thousands, at which time Deeper Life Bible Church was formally established.
By 1988 the congregation had grown to 50,000, and now numbers 120,000 members, making it the third largest Christian church in the world. Dr. Johan Combrinck reports that the Deeper Life Bible Church not only has an attendance of 120,000 every Sunday, but has planted 500 churches in Lagos, 5,000 in the rest of Nigeria – with an independent estimate of more than 800,000 members in Nigeria alone – and 3,000 elsewhere (with missionaries to 40 countries of Africa) as the movement’s missionary contribution.

Church growth expert, Dr. C. Peter Wagner, in an article titled 'Those Amazing Post-Denominational Churches' wrote: "By far, the most rapidly growing segment of Christianity on all six continents is a type of church that does not fit traditional categories or classifications. Missiologists have recognized its presence for some time, but it is such a recent phenomenon that they have not yet agreed on a name for it. Perhaps one title that would fit is the term 'post-denominational."
Pastor W. F . Kumuyi – a former university don – was plucked from an alluring career in academia almost four decades ago to start the Deeper Life Bible Church which today boasts of several branches across the world.
Once every month, W. F. Kumuyi ministers via the church’s satellite channel to over a million congregants across Africa and beyond in a special service which is held every last Sunday of the month.
