Pastor Kumuyi has ministered the word of God worldwide, bringing the joy of salvation to the lost, delivering the sick, and leading many to the blissful expectation of heaven.

True to his name, William, he has been a stout defender of the faith as attested to by a series of odd situations which provided him opportunities to prove his mettle in the “good fight of faith.” He believes, teaches and lives out the Bible. For several decades, he has consistently championed the holiness movement. He has demonstrated the sanctified life to the point that, nobody who knows him closely would doubt him when, like Apostle Paul, he says, “...God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” His life-style is as convicting as his preaching.

Pastor Kumuyi ranks as one of the expositoriest teachers of God's Word of this age. His mastery of the Scripture is exceptional and he does not preach about God's Word — he preaches God's Word. He does it in such a unique style that engages his audience and ensures that everyone clearly understands the points he makes irrespective of their educational status.

His passion for soul-winning and concern for the salvation of the unsaved has kept him on his toes for decades. He has traversed the length and breadth of Africa and other paths of the world to bring the saving gospel of Christ to those who need it.
