Family Christian announced this week that they will become the exclusive retail partner for Active Faith Sports Apparel. Family Christian is the world’s largest Christian-focused retailer with over 250 stores in 36 states. The nonprofit organization offers Christian-themed merchandise.

Active Faith Sports Apparel is a premium retailer that features sports gear with Christian-inspired themes and messages, and they have developed a passionate following among Christians who want to share their faith through sport due to the quality of their merchandise.

“Our mission with the Active Faith line is to help our customers take their faith with them to the gym, on the basketball court, the baseball diamond, or even on a leisurely walk with the family. These high-quality products offer inspiration whether you are a backyard warrior or a professional athlete,” remarked Jennifer Makowski, Senior Buyer over Gifts/Apparel for Family Christian.

Professional athletes have raved about Active Faith Sports since its founding in 2012. NBA superstar and 2-time back to back MVP Stephen Curry became an investor in the company early in his career. Curry stated how the company’s iconic “In Jesus Name I Play” tagline inspires, motivates and reminds him why he plays the game.

“You may never play in the Super Bowl or have your own shoe, but you can still do whatever you do in the name of Jesus and give God praise for the ability to do so.” Added Lanny Smith Active Faith Sports CEO.  “We are thrilled about this new partnership with Family Christian and the opportunity to spread the Gospel through sport.”

The Active Faith line will be available online and in select stores beginning June 1, and available in all Family Christian stores on July 4.
