Makerere University has birthed leaders in different spheres of life in this nation. However, one person from the religious circles caught our attention. He is a young graduate of Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering and currently a CEO of Echrise- a software company.
Today, he is well known in the Christian circles and written about as one of the youngest God’s Generals in Uganda.
His powerful ministration of the Word and authentic Prophecy has made him a talk around the city and compared to none. He is a fast rising prophet with one of the fastest growing ministry in the country.
Who Is Prophet Brian Kagyezi?
At the age of 24 years, Prophet Brian Kagyezi set out to build the vision of Pneuma Word Ministries and, armed with the Spirit and the Word, he set out to change the face of Christianity in Uganda. With time, he built a well able team of young and vibrant pastors with whom he currently shepherds the flock at Pneuma Word Ministries. Additionally, he fathers thousands of people with many ministries submitted to him in and outside Uganda.
He was formerly a dance leader at both Masaka Pentecostal Church (MPC) and at Kampala Pentecostal Church- now Watoto. During his time at Watoto Church, he was also made a teacher of discipleship class. Many people used to come and listen to his teachings and others would record his teachings on camera.
He changed many and his specific class was commended for the rapid speed in growth and multiplication which was accredited to his accuracy and fervency in teaching the Word, to him, this came with ease and power. It was very clear to all that something was peculiar about his gift of teaching and preaching.
His early life was mysterious and there were so many issues surrounding it: at the age of 4 while at the party with his parents, he remembers distinctively his spirit being caught up in South Africa when Nelson Mandela was made president. He came back via Rwanda within the same time when there were massive killings i.e. the genocide. What an experience!
At the age of 13 he would behold so many visions and things in the spiritual world and he vividly recalls, to the detail, of a moment when a drunkard was fighting his mother while he, the prophet, was still in her belly! To back up this out-of-this-world recollection, he went on to add that on that particular day, his mother was putting on a blue dress and she chased the drunkard with a panga.
Back in secondary School, he grew a previously feeble fellowship to the tune of 500 students because, when he started preaching in that particular fellowship, a lot of strange things were happening due to the manifestation of the power of God. Since the fellowship used to take place during lunch hours, many students started skipping lunch and it drew the attention of the school administration. As a result of this, they pondered about expelling him but discarded the plan since he was among the brightest students in the School.
While at Makerere, he literally turned the Christian society upside down.
He preached more than any person of his age and whenever he would preach, students would remain motionless for long periods of time under the power of God that they had just witnessed
and received in the Word.
On one particular day, as some brethren were preparing to go for an overnight, one of them, a lady dropped dead, right in front of the Makerere University main gate. He was sent an SMS immediately and he got into serious prayer mode, believing for the unusual. The unusual happened and the lady came back to life!
He is popularly referred to as “The Chariot” and known for making phenomenal prophecies. For example, about three years ago, while preaching in Rwanda on a mission, he prophesied to the assistant governor of Bank of Rwanda about how his wife was to give birth to a baby girl and it surely came to pass. He has gone on to prophesy about changes in the nation of Mauritius, leadership in Zimbabwe, North Korea, the speaker of parliament of Uganda, to name but a few.
On top of all this, the Prophet and Pneuma Word Ministries have gone on to arrange very successful missions and crusades, the most notable of these being; Mission Tororo-2014, Mission Masaka-2015 and the Masaka Supernatural Crusade-2016 which always take place in April of that year.
On these missions and crusades, sight has been restored to the blind, broken bones have been mended, babies still in the womb identified, endless rivers of prophecy, mad people’s senses restored, families reunited, ministries renewed and most importantly countless numbers of souls being won for the Kingdom of God.
Amidst all these seemingly big achievements physically and spiritually, there is one assurance though: he is just starting. This man of God has been known to have crazy dreams and an equally crazy faith and it is certain that God is just beginning to use him to impact this generation.
About Pneuma Word Ministries
Pneuma word ministries is a modern congregation of Christ centered believers celebrating God through the prophetic and a home to scores of people who seek to hear God speaking today, in all authenticity.
Their sole mission and vision is to demonstrate the Spirit of God in all His fullness and Power so that the rule of God is brought about in the hearts of men.
“After careful observation, as I was led of the Spirit of God, I saw a need to touch our nation with the Word of God and power of the Spirit. It is my sincere prayer therefore to my generation to taste of the Shekinah glory of God, a touch of the Spirit” writes Prophet Brian Kagyezi in his book ‘Making Room for the Holy Spirit”
On 12th January 2014, the Church had its first meeting at Seascallop Restaurant (Along Kiira Road, from Mulago stage) and only 23 people attended. The numbers grew and the small place couldn’t accommodate them anymore. Efforts were pooled and a 200-seater place was found, and on 11th January 2015 the church meetings were shifted to Grand Global Hotel (Makerere, Kikoni). In the same year, precisely on 26th June 2015, the ministry opened up a fellowship at Nob view Hotel in Ntinda. The numbers also in this fellowship kept on growing rapidly.
The hotel became too small to contain this fellowship. In July, just the following year, the numbers were so big that people would attend the fellowship from verandas, stair-cases, and outside of the hotel, listening to the word through doors and windows. It was due to this that the hotel management terminated their tenancy from which another 5000 seater venue at Kampala Parents School in Ntinda was sought after booked. And on, 2nd September 2016, the fellowship was re-launched at Kampala Parents.
As if following previous patterns, Grand Global Hotel became so uncomfortable for the Church. The increase was too big that the hotel could not allow for freedom of worship and was such a discomfort to the brethren. So, praying and scouting for a new venue begun and true to His Word, God delivered the Church. At the start of January 2017, the ministry obtained its new home located in Kyanja, and the glory of God is being revealed as deliverance sets the land free.
Many people have been captivated by the glory of God at this land. Some have been led by the power of God in visions to come to the church and confess of their evil sorcery acts in the area.
The power that heals, the power that sets free, the power that increases has been witnessed in this ministry all through, and God is dealing with everyone individually for the growth of His body.
Currently, the Church holds popular Saturday services, Sunday services, Equip classes plus other events all at the Church premises in Kyanja- a quick drive from Kampala using Ntinda- Kisasi road or the Northern Bypass.
Pneuma Word Ministries has speedily grown popular with astounding numbers of young people and, on the 31st of this month, there will be spiritual celebrations to mark 3 years since Prophet Brian Kagyezi birthed Pneuma Word Ministries.
Considering the magnitude of the testimonies and success stories about Pneuma word ministries, Prophet Brian Kagyezi has been strongly believed to walk in the miraculous and power revolutionaries and is banked on to revive not only the Christian body in general but also the prophetic office in this nation.
