Agape Gear, a leader designed of religious clothing designed specifically for the younger generation, has plans to expand its mission to teach, inspire, challenge and encourage young people to develop a closer and more meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ. An important focus in any persons life is their faith in God, said company co-founder Karin Vickers. We believe a person without that focus may stray from the path given to them. Agape Gear was created as a vessel to bring faith back to the forefront of society with vibrant, thought-provoking and inspiring clothing designs in order to bring todays youth and those who arent so young – back to the right track.
Agape Gear was founded in 2010, when Karin and her sister Melissa decided they needed to find a way to reach out to young people who were moving away from the teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as those who had never experienced a relationship with Him. Offering T-shirts featuring vibrant, contemporary graphics combined with faith-inspired sayings, Agape Gear hopes to reach a generation raised on Facebook, Twitter and video games by providing inspiring and visually stimulating religious clothing. I have three teens, and I can see how they would be drawn first to a cool graphic and then to focus on the message, said Melissa. We’re not trying to hit anyone over the head and drag them to faith. We just want to see faith in a way they can relate. In this day and age, everyone can use a bit of faith.
Karin developed the initial idea for an online store offering faith-based tees after experiencing a difficult life event that caused her to rekindle and deepen her own faith in God. It usually takes a challenge to get most of us to turn to God for help or comfort, she recalled. After experiencing His grace firsthand, I wanted to find a way to encourage young people to have a relationship with Jesus Christ, even when everything is smooth sailing. Today, Karin and Melissa have been joined by Karins brother, Gary Vickers, turning Agape gear into a true family business. In addition to the eye-catching and youthful designs of their apparel, the team hopes the online store will appeal to teens and others who are drawn to the ease of an online shopping experience.
