5. Deeper Life Christian Ministry
The Deeper Life Bible Church which Pastor Williams Folorunsho Kumuyi started with only 15 members in 1973, while teaching Mathematics at the University of Lagos, Akoka, Yaba, Lagos, has gone so big.
The church boasts of an ultra modern headquarters in Gbagada, Lagos. The 30,000 – seater cathedral is a mini stadium and costs the church N4 billion to build. An Italian civil engineering firm, Cappa & D’Alberto, won the contract for the construction. The building covers 6,200 square meters, with additional 1,624 square meters for land spacing, sidewalks and car parks. An additional underground car park that can take about 200 cars at once.
Deeper Life also has a 240 hectare project off the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Olowosedo Village, Kilometer 42, Ogun State. It is used for retreats and special programmes. This place is so massive that it looks like a new town being carved out of the bush. Most of the structures, such as hostels, chalets and an elaborate water supply system have been completed.
It also has its own electricity supply scheme and a petrol station which is yet to be completed. A 130,000 capacity main auditorium is also underway and is nearing its completion. This camp known as Deeper Life Conference Centre, is worth N40 billion. Similarly, the ministry has a world class International Bible Training Centre (IBTC) at Ayobo, Lagos. It is a village complex with chalets, conference centre, offices, classroom blocks, new 10,000 capacity student hostels, a massive kitchen complex, supermarket, children’s church, factory producing mattresses, iron beds, pillows and paint for church use.
