REVEALED: Why Pastor Kumuyi Bans The Use Of iPad & Android Devices In His Church

The founder and the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, has revealed why iOS (iPads, iPhones) and Android devices were banned in his Church some weeks ago.

A lot of criticisms had trailed the decision of the pastor to prohibit the use of smartphones in his Church.

However, according to Encomium Weekly, the ban was placed by Pastor Kumuyi because the members of the Church were pretending to read their Bibles, but instead they were surfing the web and not paying attention to the sermon.

The headquarters of Deeper Life Bible Church is situated at KM 42 on the busy Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Nigeria.

Pastor Kumuyi is the author of several books. In the early 1970s Kumuyi worked as an education lecturer at the University of Lagos.


He was born into a Christian family in Erin-Ijesha, Osun State, Nigeria.

William Kumuyi completed his secondary school education in 1961, and in 1962 started teaching mathematics at Mayflower School in Ikenne, Ogun-State, from where he proceeded to the University of Ibadan. In 1967 he graduated with a first-class honours degree in mathematics. He became a born-again Christian in April 1964.

Kumuyi remarried in October 2010 in London, about 18 months after the death of his first wife.

In April 2013, Kumuyi was named as one of the “500 most powerful people on the planet” and Deeper Christian Life Ministry named as “the World’s largest Megachurch” by Foreign Policy magazine.
