  1. He completed his secondary school education in 1961 at Mayflower School in Ikenne, Ogun State, from where he proceeded to the University of Ibadan and in 1967 graduated with a first-class honours degree in mathematics where he graduated as an overall best graduating student in that year.
  2. William Kumuyi went back to Mayflower School to teach mathematics. After 5 years, he went to the University of Lagos to do a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. He became a lecturer there in 1973. At that time, he founded the Deeper Life Bible Study group.

At this time, the Deeper Life Bible Ministry was established.
