ABOUT 316TEES & THE OWNER
OUR APPAREL IS INSPIRED BY TRUTH
Our designs are inspired by Truth.
We are called to be the "light of the world". We are called to follow Jesus. Not just to be "Christians" who believe. If we are truly followers of Jesus, then others will see the "light" in us. Love will be pouring through us to others. It is that love, the most important fruit of the spirit, that will cause others to see something different in us, not a t-shirt.
WE DON'T BELIEVE IN COMPETITION
In other words, I do not believe that other Christian apparel brands are my competitors. This is one of the biggest problems with "Christian" businesses in my opinion. Jesus' followers are supposed to build each other up.
We are called to Love. How powerful would it be if we partnered up, rather than competed for sales? It doesn't mean we have to literally be business partners.
But why not share the business of other believers if the opportunity is there? Why not help other believers start businesses using the wisdom and knowledge we have gained through running our own businesses? We want 316tees to be a brand that serves others.
When Ephesians 4:1 talks about Unity, I believe these words "when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love" also apply to those of us who have chosen to run a business. I believe that one "Christian" business is just a part of a larger Kingdom marketplace where all the parts should be working together.
WE SERVE THE CHRISTIAN MUSIC INDUSTRY
Christian music was a pivotal part of my surrender to Jesus and the journey that would follow.
It became a part of my daily routine. I even remember listening to a secular top 40 station in 2003 and hearing "I Can Only Imagine" for the first time. I was thinking, how did this song cross over to secular radio? The answer was "God".
316Tees is partnered with a few Christian bands, and we love to help bands get their own designs up and going. Bands need merch sales and financial support! Support the Christian music industry!
WE HAVE A HEART FOR ORPHAN & FOSTER CARE
316tees supports Coreluv International, and other ministries. Coreluv's motto is "Defend the Orphan". We are specifically called to this in Isaiah 1:17 as well as other verses.
Our own family unit is made up of myself, my amazing wife, and 9 kids, including 4 foster kids. Fostering is not something I thought I was capable of, and without God I am not. But once we surrender fully, it is amazing how God gives us opportunities to love others that we never expected to be in our path.
316tees is an apparel brand inspired by Truth. I pray that, in our own journey to grow, we are able to help people along the way.
