“We wear our faith clothes because we want to show others that we believe in what we do and believe in Jesus.”

Gee said the new line, Faith Clothing, is the first faith-based line of clothing in the world to offer a full line of custom-made clothing designed to bring people closer to Jesus and the Gospel.
“Our goal is to have faith clothing that will give people a chance to feel like they are more alive, more fully connected to God and more in the presence of God,” Gee said.
“We’re very pleased to be the first to bring the faith-filled clothes that we love to the world.”
Gee has been designing clothing in his own shop since 2013, and the company began selling Faith Clothing in July 2016.
It’s the first time a faith-themed clothing line has been sold in the United States, and Gee hopes it will change lives.
“We’re trying to change the way people think about faith,” he said.
“When you see a religious icon on a shirt, you see Jesus Christ, and it makes you feel more connected to Him, it makes people feel like there is more love in the universe,” he added.
Gees faith clothing line is modeled after the clothing worn by the Mormon pioneers who traveled to the West in the 1820s, as they found the West was full of new religious movements.
It features shirts with the words, “A Light in My Life,” and other messages about the faith they were brought to find.GEE said the Faith Clothing line will be available through Faith Clothing’s online store, and also through local retail outlets such as the Grace Food Pantry and Salvation Army, which are also sponsoring the new faith-inspired line.
The faith-wear is available at a variety of locations, including Grace Church’s headquarters in Austin.
“It’s been a long time coming,” said Gee.
“It’s amazing to see the outpouring of support from the local community.
It really gives us a lot of encouragement to keep working and doing the best we can.”
Gees company, Gee’s Faith Clothing and The Gospel Gospel Church, have been selling faith-related products for nearly 15 years.
They also serve as leaders in their local churches and have been a key factor in growing faith in the region.
The Grace Church opened a faith apparel store in Austin in 2010, and now has more than 100 locations nationwide.
The Faith Clothing store, which is located in Austin, features everything from clothing to apparel, toys, books and more.
“There’s nothing like getting a piece of faith from God and seeing how you can change lives for the better,” Gees said.
