PM News, a Lagos based evening daily newspaper this evening reports that the leadership of Deeper Christian Life Ministries has suspended John Kumuyi, son of General Superintendent W.F Kumuyi, along with his Wife Favour, over their wedding ceremony on June 15 which had several ‘elements’ which were not in line with the beliefs of the ministry.

The suspension, according to PM News, was announced by Pastor Philip Oluwi, a prominent leader of the church, at the church’s monthly revival and miracle programme. The couple is facing disciplinary action for ‘the embarrassment they brought upon the church during the wedding’.

“The church, Deeper Life, remains committed to the biblical practice and standard of almost 40 years Christian dressing and still remains and does not compromise on Christian dressing. Hence deviation warrants the displeasure of God and and frown of the leadership of the church. John and Love are now under discipline.” Pastor Oluwi said.

Some offenses the couple are said to have committed include Love’s wedding gown which wasn’t such as would have been approved by Deeper Life (it was too short), her use of makeup (including a lip stick), and her hair which wasn’t natural. Other offenses are the hiring of a limousine to convey the couple after the wedding and a huge cake cut during the ceremony both of which conflict the church’s stance of moderation during wedding ceremonies.

The wedding which took place in Jamaica wasn’t conducted in a Deeper Life Church (as the church’s branch in Jamaica hasn’t received a go-ahead by the state to conduct wedding ceremonies), which has drawn criticism from members of the church in addition to sparking debate on social media in the past week.

Meanwhile John and Love Kumuyi have written the church to apologize over the incident. In a letter titled “Letter of Apology” read severally to the congregation by Pastor Jerry Asemota, who is the secretary of the church, the couple apologized to the congregation, the leadership and the General Superintendent, Pastor Kumuyi for their conduct during the ceremony. They have also taken full responsibility for their action, appealing for the disciplinary action to be reversed.

John Kumuyi is one of two sons born to Pastor W.F Kumuyi by his former wife, Aduke who passed on in April 2009 from an illness. Love Kumuyi (nee Odih) is said to be daughter of the National Overseer in Jamaica.

  1. Thank God for d good example, the man of God lay down i pray that God wil increase ur faith, strenght sir weldone Baba.

  2. God is not a man that He will change neither is He a son of man that He will repent. Gods standard remain the same: He is the same yesterday today and forever. I thank God Almighty for the man of God Pastor WF Kumuyi for holding high the church doctrine in Deeper Life Bible Church against indecent dressing in all ramifications………..

  3. God’s standard remain the same but I believe God is pointing at something the eyes of this church are not opened to. Let them take time to go through the scriptures again.

  4. the strength of every ministry depends on the leadership. and it is better to be united and be wrong than to be divided and be right.
    humanbeings must recognize that the church is still the body and the wife of Christ, though it can somewhat be managed by a man but the Owner reserves the sole right to change the management at His Will.

  5. Satan has failed again in Deeper life ministry. Baba, satan wil cont. to failed over d ministry God has given to u. Satan wanted to put u ( G.S) to shame but d shame goes to him(Satan). Ride on Papa!

  6. were they not counselled, seen by the marriage cttee.before they proceeded to the church; who joined them; why were they not sent away in first instance, to correct their wrong? these people grew in the church, knows the stands of the church yet they this; because they aready planned what to do. hope they are not leading a new move of GRACE!

  7. John and Love deserves more than they are getting now.How would he bring such a shame to Deeper life a church other churches are have been looking for a way to accuse.

  8. people should not be discouraged cos of what happened….the standard of christian dressing being upheld by the church is for our own good to curb worldliness and excesses among believers,,since they have recognized their mistakes and apologized we move on…looking unto the JESUS the author and finisher of our faith..Jesus died leaving us examples to follow…Lets look onto Jesus as a role model

  9. D devil really use John and his wife 2 bring shame into d church but D Almight God hav really disgrace d devil by given dem punishment

  10. THEY DESERV THE PUNISHMENT, JOHN DECIDED TO BE AN INSTRUMENT IN THE HAND OF SATAN TO DESTROY HIS OWN FATHER, AND THE WORK OF GOD. THOSE SUPPORTING HIM ARE AGENTS OF SATAN ON SUIT THAT ARE BUSY SEDNDING SOULS TO THIER MASTER SATAN IN HELL. JOHN WHAT YOU HAVE DONE I DONT KNOW HOW GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU, SO ALL THIS WHILE YOU HAVE BEEN THE HOUSE HOLD ENEMY OF YOUR FATHER’S SOUL, YOU WANT TO KILL YOUR FATHER AND SEND HIM TO HELL, IT WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU.WHAT YOU SOW YOU MUST SURELY REAP IT. OTHER PASTORS PLS LEARN YOUR LESSON FROM THIS FAMILY, BEWARE OF SATANS LONG TERM PROJECT. DO NOT FORGET THAT SATAN IS A BELIEVER.

  11. what on earth does ppl want. The couples said they ain’t aware of d conduct n tradition in Nigeria. Fine! D lady went a little overboard, but seriously wats bad in wearing a wedding gown in Jamaica, it’s nt Nigeria u knw. Leave wf it n stop d critism, d knife had cut d finger already n now u want to trow it away will dt stop ur finger from hurting. Cutting off d head isn’t a remedy for headache u knw. Imagine hw much those couples r going 2ru right now on account of ur critism, I’m sure they wldn’t hv enjoyed there honeymoon, ppl made them build there on regrets. U ppl shld ask for forgiveness u know. The Bible says: judge nt dt ye might nt be judged. Put urselves in there position for christ sakes.
