brian-headshot-bwI am a man “laid low in the dust” (Psalm 119:25)—broken, yet drenched by the dew of Heaven. A lover of all things pertaining to Christ Jesus (and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!). Victorious in Christ. Husband to a Polish beauty. By day, a wannabe superhero to two precious daughters. By night, a soaring prophetic dreamer. Servant. Writer. Intercessor. Revivalist. A voice with a revelatory bent. In former season of life: entrepreneur, consultant, and publisher. Weak beyond weak, yet strong in Him! An overcomer. One conquered by love.

Are you asking, “Who the heck is this guy?”
Perhaps this Q&A will help (or not).

How did you manage to marry a Polish bombshell? Is it true that you met your Eastern European wife on a “bride-to-order” website?

Let me take my slingshot and kill two birds with one smooth stone. I met my wife at bible school. (There, I slayed the “bride-to-order” rumor.) Now let me proceed to explain how I managed to woo my beautiful wife.

Bachelors, take notes.

Since it is quite a lengthy story, you’ll have to read it here.

Are you a publisher?

Not anymore. After launching Burning Lamp Media & Publishing in 2010, I sold it in 2014. Now it is in good hands with Jon and Jolene Hamill of Lamplighters Ministries. Meanwhile I will devote myself to the Lord’s call to serve the body of Christ through writing and speaking; intercessory and prophetic ministry; and discipleship.

When do you plan to release your first book?

Honestly, I don’t know. I’ve been working on several manuscripts over the past few years. Now is the time to decide what direction I want to go—self publish or the traditional route. With my previous experience in publishing, I understand the pros and cons of both options. Moving forward once I publish my first book, I plan to publish one book per year.

Have you seen Jesus Christ?

Yes. You’ll have to wait for my first book release to learn more about that.

What is your favorite scripture verse?

This changes a bit over the years due to the emphasis of the Holy Spirit in a given season of life. Currently I’m feasting on Philippians 3:14 which I’ve chewed on quite a bit over the years: “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

Why is your nickname Hume-inator?

I love this story because it took place during the time I surrendered my life to Christ as a freshman in college. It brings great delight to my heart to share the story. It was certainly a defining moment in my life.

Is it true that you once ate crusty cow manure?

I plead the Fifth Amendment!

But I will disclose that I ate cow tongue at a hole-in-the-wall, authentic Mexican joint in Dallas. It wasn’t bad—but it wasn’t good either. It was cow tongue. Sort of bland and chewy.

Now that cow manure…

Are you a prophet?

Well, I can assure you that I’ll never hand out a business card glossed with Prophet Brian Francis Hume. And honestly, I could care less about titles. I’m a son of the Lord Most High. I’m a servant of the King.

But I do operate with a prophetic bent. And I’ll let the fruit seen in the lives of others do the rest of the talking.

How can you be a writer if you almost flunked out of college?

Ouch!

Did we really need to bring that up? My journey to become a writer has been a challenge from the start. Yet, by God’s grace, I’ve been able to use my writing to inspire others to live their all for the glory of God.

I hope it does the same for you.

What else should we know about you?

That’s tough to answer. My wife says I’m oftentimes too serious. She’ll remind me before I’m about to preach or teach, “Make sure you smile like Joel Osteen!” Of course she’s joking, at least I think she is. But it does underscores the intensity in how I carry myself.

Here’s a posting, 16 Random Tidbits about Me, that’s more on the less intense side of things.
