#1 | Kerusso Christian Clothing Brand: Original

Kerusso

Kerusso - Kerusso is the Greek word meaning "to herald (as a public crier), especially divine truth (the Gospel); preach, proclaim, publish". As one of the original Christian clothing brands, Kerusso began over thirty years ago, in a garage with three basic prints, and has developed over the years into the leading producer of Christian apparel around the world.

The company ships nearly 10,808 shirts a day to every corner of the globe. Recently, it has expanded its line to include jewelry and accessories. Kerusso products are currently offered in over 2500 retailers across the nation.

The mission of Kerusso is to encourage Christians to engage in “T-shirt evangelism” and the company makes no apology for it. Each of the designs is targeted to start conversations with those who might read the message of the shirt, and through those dialogues, then open the door to invite someone to know Jesus personally.

The growth of the company has allowed Kerusso to donate to ministry causes such as Compassion International among others. The company has also made a name for itself by shipping major quantities of free shirts to areas hard hit with natural disasters. The most popular design that Kerusso makes is the “Lifeguard” print with over 454,000 sold.

#2 | Elly & Grace Christian Clothing Brand: Women

Elly & Grace - This women's Christian clothing brand showed up in the market over the last few years with a lot of help from its great simple designs, and solid Etsy store following. Based out of Missouri since 2016, the founder, Breanna, attended a women’s conference and took to heart the idea of being fearless in one’s faith. She decided to start ellyandgrace in her basement, with the goal to “uplift, inspire, and point others toward Jesus.” Currently, the company produces T-shirts, hoodies, stickers and postcards along with other items all designed to convey a spiritual message.

The website includes a variety of devotional material designed to help other believers grow in their faith. Written by the founder, they are an honest look at topics everyday Christians might struggle with. For example, “A Prayer for the Overwhelmed Heart”, or “Help! Bible reading! Where Do I Start?” can help a Christian stuck in their devotional time get restarted and reconnected with God.

#3 | 316Tees Christian Clothing Brand: Veteran 

316TEES - 316Tees is a growing veteran-owned Christian clothing brand that carries a mix of great Christian t-shirts and hoodies inspired from legacy brands like C28, NOTW, and Sanctify. We even have some Christian freedom themed designs that align with God & Country. 316Tees now has one of the original designers of the C28/NOTW clothing brand on their staff. Many of their designs are printed unisex, ringspun cotton tees ranging from size kids small to 5XL.

 Based in Texas, 316tees has a mission is to help Christians “be the light of the world.” By emphasizing the message of the shirt, it seeks to help Christians draw themselves and others into a closer walk with Jesus. The company has a large selection of high-quality designs, both Christians and patriotic. Popular designs include “One Nation Under God” and “Faith over Fear.”

Of particular importance are their partnerships with the One Kingdom Ministry and Coreluv International. One Kingdom invests in and equips leaders to advance the gospel around the world, in over 70 nations. They also restore communities affected by disaster.

Coreluv International is a ministry designed to aid orphans by working in impoverished areas to provide clean water, proper food, healthcare, and a loving home. The organization is working hard to improve the lives of countless children around the world.

#4 | God The Father Apparel Christian Clothing Brand: Streetwear

God the Father Apparel - According to the website, "God The Father seeks to provide high-quality Christian streetwear apparel for believers and followers of Christ. I want our Christian clothing to spark a conversation."

God The Father Apparel was started by former basketball player Drew Urquhart from Vancouver, Canada. Drew created the brand to spread God's Word through the apparel. 

Drew said, "I want the concept of giving to be a major part of this brand. Not only do I want to help individuals spread God’s word and help spark a conversation but we really just want to give. Buy from God the Father and know that with every purchase, you're contributing to Christian communities."

#5 | Tim Tebow Foundation Christian Clothing Brand: Athlete

tim tebow foundation

Tim Tebow Foundation - A nice line of Christian apparel for a good cause. It's always nice to see an athlete proclaim his Faith for Christ in front of millions of viewers. Tebow isn't the only famous person with a clothing brand. But it's great to see Christian athletes that don't fear persecution for their beliefs.

The organization supports a variety of causes through the sale of its apparel. One of the most recent advances is their Night To Shine, a special prom night for children of special needs, to be hosted in over 720 churches across the country. The event which allows for special needs teens to have their own safe place of belonging, the event sponsored by parents and the TTF will serve over 115,000 boys and girls nationwide.

Tebow is best known for his time with the Florida Gators and the Denver Broncos, but his faith has defined him for years. Using his platform for Christian causes, he has been a vocal proponent of Children’s Hospitals, and other causes benefitting orphans and kids suffering with life threatening illnesses.

#6 | Shields of Strength Christian Clothing Brand: Military

shields of strength

Shields of Strength -  Shields of Strength started out in 1998 by printing scriptures on dog tags. This great brand showed up in Lifeway and other stores across the nation. They have been supplying custom dog tags to military installations (in the field) as well as first responders and law enforcement, with over 4 million tags printed and worn to date.

Shields of Strength has a great line of Christian clothing for all ages and especially designs themed to athletes. One of their novel products are shoelaces imprinted with Phil 4:13 on them.

The mission of the company is to share the love, hope, forgiveness, and power of God’s Word with others and to see people victorious in life’s battles and in a relationship with Jesus Christ.”

The company received a great deal of publicity, when President Bush reflected on a Shield of Strength dog tag worn by Captain Russell Rippetoe, the first soldier from Operation Iraq Freedom to be laid to rest in the Arlington National Cemetery. President Bush’s remarks included the reading of the engraved scripture, Joshua 1:9, and from that time the company was inundated with orders.

#8 | TobyMac Christian Clothing Brand: Band

Toby Mac Store- Toby Mac has been one of our favorite Christian artists for so many years. Since Christian artist tees aren't available in many Christian clothing stores online, we wanted to feature Toby's gear here in our top 10 list. This is the best Christian music clothing brand we have seen.

The website promotes not just apparel but also concert dates, videos, and recordings from the artist. Especially poignant are the personal reflections of Toby concerning some of his music, and his desire to be “true to who God has created him to be.”

While the clothing offerings are limited, each is done in attractive style with vibrant high-resolution graphics that are designed to stand out. Recently, Toby Mac launched his own clothing brand MacBLK Label to sell items beyond just at concerts. Fans may enjoy checking out numerous tweets from Toby Mac posted to the website.

 #9 | Disciple Threads Christian Clothing Brand: Artistic

Disciple threads

Disciple Threads - Disciple Threads is all about sharing the gospel through rad apparel. Jesus loved the "outcasts" and so does Matt over at Disciple Threads. His love for heavy music, tattoos, black t-shirts, and art culture is at the heart of the brand. Disciple Threads clothing brand combines those influences with the positive, life-giving message of Jesus Christ. 

Printing since 2018, the company is working hard to minister to millennials who are embracing the alternative culture. Matt indicates that his goal is to help others find the “amazing freedom in Christ.”

Customer reviews have been wonderful, and many guests are impressed with the personal notes that Matt often puts into the orders he ships.

IT ISN’T ABOUT THE SHIRT...

Regardless of the type of Christian T shirt you wear, the important thing to remember is it isn’t about the shirt, it is about the good news of Jesus Christ. Like a college fan wears a shirt with their favorite team on it, as Christians, we wear a shirt to proclaim what we are passionate about. If your expression helps someone be encouraged in the faith, then the few minutes it took to put it on was well worth it.

So many companies feel that they must be in competition with each other for market share, that they become obsessed with sales numbers and bottom lines. Ultimately, they miss the point. The truth is that even the smallest company printing out of an empty basement can have a part in growing God’s kingdom. This is what Christian clothing brands offer. A chance to plant seeds of faith that may one day spring forth in due season. It’s about the message not the shirt. Let’s not forget that.
