The Founder

The “Calling”
Prior to the emergence of Christ First Clothing Co., an assortment of less-than engaging product offerings were designated for the Christian consumer. Religious cliches’ printed on low-quality tees was considered “Christian fashion.” Moreover, faith-based clothing offerings greatly paled in comparison to what was being offered in the secular marketplace until Christ First Clothing was introduced– raising the bar worldwide and forever changing how Christian apparel would be viewed, received and worn! This is my calling– to offer God the very best in my service to Him, and raise the bar for urban Christian apparel, products and services.

The “12”
Christ First Clothing has been embraced by believers all over the world! And, every now-and-then, I’d travel to different parts of the country to work, meet and fellowship with other believers. The funny thing is: early-on, I always found myself answering the exact same question: “what does the 12 mean?”

For those many, many inquirers, this one’s for you:
I believe the number 12 was given to me due to its biblical significance. If you have your bibles, check out the following scriptures. Note: You can also scroll over each scripture to view the King James Version of the passage: Exodus 24:4, Matthew 9:20, Matthew 10:1, Mark 6:43, Matthew 26:53, Mark 5:42 and Revelation 21:12 amid others.

The “Negotiator”
As the Founder and Lead Designer of CF branded apparel and its Private Labels facet, creating cool designs and innovative applications is only part of my daily job description. I also engage in periodic market analysis research to ensure CF clients are receiving “the best possible quality at the lowest possible price.” Anyone can undercut a price, but at what cost? You should never settle. Always remember this: Anyone can compare quotes but will they compare quality? Choose CF and get the quality and price you deserve!

The “People, Places and Things”
We are thankful to God for introducing CF to His People over the years. Here’s a short-list of people who’ve purchased, worn, endorsed, encouraged or supported CF along the way.

“If your name is not listed here– be assured that it is not a slight or diss.
We thank God for YOU also.”

The “Prayers and Support”
By purchasing Christ First Products and services, you’re helping the ministry grow and develop new and innovative ways to attract souls to The Truth. Our message is CLEAR and our efforts will continue to uplift the name of our Christ — for our desire is to continue the perpetual promotion of CHRIST and His teachings, not confusing acronyms (e.g.; “RUALGUTFAD” clothing) or religious cliches (e.g.; “P.U.S.H.“). “Christ First” is a powerful and personal message, declaration and decision! Established by Matthew 6:33, the question is, do we, as believers believe and take heed to the promise in this passage? Has Christ been placed First in your life, household or business?

Articles, Features and Celebrity Clippings

Quick note to all you HD, 3D, 4G enthusiasts reading this: We’ve been in business for 13years and none of that stuff was out when CF staff captured and preserved some of the following milestones and images. We simply Thank God that people have noticed our efforts and thought enough of us to write about it and share CF with others.

In all, its never really been a priority of ours, but we’re now starting to see the positives in keeping this kind of stuff, so we’ve launched a concerted effort to locate additional CF articles, imagery and so forth (yes, there’s much more) and we’ve vowed to keep this area updated with all of God’s forthcoming achievements in CF moving forward. And, now that we have all of that HD, 3D, 4G gadgetry within reach, we expect (pray church!) to get better at preserving and sharing the awesome things God is doing in our ministry with you!
