Pastor Kumuyi’s Son Ties the Knot

John Kumuyi, the second son of Pastor William Kumuyi, the General Superintendent, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, took his heartthrob to the altar. The joyful ceremony was held on Saturday, 15 June at the Deeper Life Bible Church, after the traditional wedding.


John Kumuyi married Miss Love Odih, who is said to be the daughter of the National Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry in Jamaica and former State Overseer of the church in Cross River State, Nigeria.

Pastor Kumuyi, who wore an ash suit, attended the engagement and church wedding with his wife Esther, who wore traditional attire. The bridegroom wore a grey suit, while the bride was decked in flowing white gown with a veil to match.

John sauntered out of the church with his now-wife after the cleric had taken them through marital vows. A huge cake was cut during the wedding by the new couple.

Earlier during the traditional wedding, the bride wore native while the groom was simply decked in English wear.

Pastor Kumuyi’s children Jerry and John were born to him by his former wife, Biodun Kumuyi, who died at the age of 57 on 11 April, 2009 after a brief illness. The revered man of God remarried former Esther Aduke Blaize, who was then 65 in October 2010 at the age of 69, a year and few months after his former wife died.

Many Deeper Lifers and others have congratulated the new couple on social interactive network, Facebook, where the pictures of the couple have spread, with lots of comments being generated.

  1. Congratulations to you brother and Sister John Kumuyi! God bless your union in Jesus mighty name, amen!! But by the way, the wedding gown and the veil is not ‘Deeper Christian Life Ministry dress code’, why is that? The long gown with ‘lace’ at the top? So very contrary to Deeper Life wedding dress code OR that only apply to church members and exclude the ‘overseers children? I remembered my brother’s wedding last year, boy! was there so many ‘donts’. Infact, to the extent that no use of ‘veil’ for the lady, no ‘bowtie’ for my brother, so much so they almost refused them dancing at the reception, if not we (the groom family) put our foot down and refused totally! Many that I invited for the wedding told me point blank that they would not attend, since Deeper Life weddings is just like ‘young adult’s funeral.’
    Now I am viewing the Nigeria General Overseer’s son and Jamaica general overseer’s daughter doing it differently, maybe how its done in Jamaica is different from the way its done in Nigeria? I stand to be corrected.
