Oyogist has learned that the General superintendent of deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi has lifted punishment issued out to some youths of the church who obstructed Sunday service to celebrate the pastor’s 80th birthday on June 6.

The service which was attended by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Akwa Ibom State Governor, Emmanuel Udom, generated a lot of controversies as youths in the church strategically positioned at the first gallery of the building started blowing the trumpets and sang happy birthday to their pastor.

Kumuyi reduced the tension in his recent sermon, as he Disclosed that those who had been punished by their action during the service should be restored back to the working team.

Kumuyi thanked the youths for honouring him with their musical instruments.

He said: “On the 6th of June some young people did something they were excited about and some of us old people, we maybe rebuked them directly or indirectly. I even heard that one of those who played instruments singing ‘Happy Birthday’..understand these are young people and sometimes young people need to express their joy and their excitement in the way we adults might not have thought, we should express our own joy…but we were all happy, were you not happy?

“But you didn’t express it, you did yours in a quiet, matured, decent, weighty manner which is good…but those young people acted like they are young people and I want to register my appreciation publicly to all of them. Those who sang, those who played instruments and those who excitedly dramatized whatever, I appreciate them, God appreciates them and we praise the Lord for them.

“And if it so happens that you know any of them or you are an authority, spiritual authority on any of them and any of them was removed from doing what they were doing in the Church, please for love sake and for unity sake, restore all of them and young people, we love you, we appreciate you, we are looking forward to you doing more for the glory of God and joining us in evangelism and bringing your own method, your own ideas and some of our own ideas as older people that are not working, if you come forward and you give us good ideas, we will replace our old ideas which are not working with your new ideas.
