JON & JOLENE HAMILL
Jon and Jolene Hamill are passionate followers of Jesus Christ. They love to share His heart and word nationally and internationally through ministry and media. Founders of Lamplighter Ministries, they reside in the metro Washington DC area.
Jon and Jolene have ministered in conferences and churches throughout America, as well as internationally in Canada, Germany, Sierra Leone and Israel. They are the authors of the recently-published book “Crown and Throne: A Field Guide to Spiritual Revolution,” which has gained widespread popularity across the nation.
In addition, they have authored numerous prophetic teachings which have appeared on the Elijah List, in Charisma Magazine and other publications. Their online blog, LAMPostings is focused on sharing real-time prophetic revelation and prayer points from Washington DC, and is regularly enjoyed by thousands.
Many have been inspired by Jon and Jolene’s personal story. They were married on December 20, 2003—the first day of Hanukkah. In honor of the Jewish “Festival of Lights,” Jon and Jolene had purchased a menorah for a special unity candle ceremony. During worship, the unity candle started to flicker and then blaze—all by itself! God sovereignly lit the unity candle of their menorah, on the first day of Hanukkah, in front of a church full of invited guests!
Biblically, fire is a symbol of God’s affirmation of covenant consecration. And this message of covenant consecration and commitment has become a prominent focus of their ministry.
Lamplighter Ministries was formally established in 2007 as a catalyst for Christ’s dream of awakening and transformation. In 2014, they also became owners and directors of Burning Lamp Media and Publishing.
