My name is Brian A. McBride, sometimes writing as Alexander Grey. Some of you know me. For those who don’t, here I am.

I’m 21 years old. I’m a Pentecostal Christian, Certified Pastor, Author of both fiction and non-fiction, poet, worship leader, songwriter, painter, Instagram photographer, brother, and friend.

I’m a hopeless romantic. Most of my stories are about silly things like love, hope, life, passion, art, faith, loss, grief, struggle, friendship, and the human condition.

My favorite animal is the wolf because, like me, they run in packs, are fiercely protective and territorial, don’t beat around the bush, and care for their own. You’ll rarely find me alone.

I’m completely passionate about the Lord and desperately seek another great outpouring of His Spirit in this generation. I long to see young men and women begin to move in the Spirit in power and authority, releasing the weight of heaven in their world. I want to see strong, passionate, Godly men and women rise up as the Daniels and the Esthers of this generation.

At the core of who I am, I’m a lover, a fighter, and a believer, loyal to the bone. And I know that for those who are like me, who are desperate for more, we haven’t even begun to see all that’s in store for us.

There are wilder things in store for those who are willing to step out and take ground.


Truly, Madly, Deeply,

Brian McBride
