In my desire to share my faith with onlookers in a variety of different settings (on the bus, at work, at school or my neighborhood) I’ve found myself caught between a few difficult realities:
- It’s not easy to share your faith with strangers, much less people you know
- Many Christian stereotypes posted on shirts or other apparel places a target on your head that says “Christian”, sometimes spoiling an engaging first impression.
- Relationships are key to making disciples, and getting them started can be difficult.
I saw a neon t-shirt one day that said “MADE FOR GLORY” and thought, “Hmm, I wonder if I can use something as simple a t-shirt, with a carefully crafted message, to start conversations about God and the Gospel.” It was from this idea that I searched and struggled to find them, and eventually the Lord birthed this “Walking Proclamation” apparel company in my heart.
