I 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 as one conquered by Christ’s love.
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.
No, 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 preaching; intercessory and prophetic ministry; and discipleship.
Honestly, it has been a challenge for me. I’ve been working on several manuscripts over the past few years. I need to focus on one of them to finally get it completed. Then I need 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 hope to publish one book per year.
Well, you will have to wait for my first book release to find out. However, I did share about this moment in a recent television interview on CTN Houston.
Here’s the interview on Facebook.
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.”
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.
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…
Well, I can assure you that I’ll never hand out a business card glossed with Prophet Brian Francis Hume. And honestly, titles do not impress or sway me. My heart simply delights in being a son of the Lord Most High.
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.
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.
That’s tough to answer. My wife says I’m oftentimes too serious. She’ll remind me before I’m about to preach, Make sure you smile like Joel! She is referring to Joel Osteen who smiles the entire time he preaches. Of course she’s joking, at least I think she is. But it does underscore the intensity in how I carry myself when I preach.
Here’s a posting, 16 Random Tidbits about Me, that’s more on the less intense side of things.
Darrian Summerville did a phenomenal job with the worship at the beginning. That alone is worth the listen. Bill Yount also did a tremendous job sharing the message for the service. I’m so grateful for the job that Scott Bradshaw did officiating the service. Both Lou Engle and David Bradshaw shared such words of affirmation that ministered deeply to my heart. The entire service was everything I desired, and more.

No, not anymore. I was from 2017 through 2019. What an honor it was to serve in that capacity. Even though I am no longer the National Prayer Coordinator, I am certainly still connected with this movement. I felt led to step down from this role so that another person could step in and take it to the next level. I’m thrilled to see that others have followed in my footsteps to take ATD to the next level.
