Over 250,000 Christians Wear their Faith

Christian teens across the country are being encouraged to share their faith without saying a word at least one day of the week.

Already more than 250,000 people have joined the "Wear iT Wednesday" movement and are sporting their Christian shirts every week.

"Wear iT Wednesday is a growing movement that will show the nation that young people are committed to change and that they are willing to take on the personal responsibility of their values," the campaign states. "The Wear iT Wednesday tag line states it best – 'Wear iT, Live iT.'"

The campaign recently partnered with a leading producer of Christian-themed apparel in the United States, Kerusso.

Vic Kennett, CEO and president of Kerusso, commented in a statement, "We've been producing Christian t-shirts for over 20 years and have seen first-hand the impact they have on people's lives. To see Chelsea spearheading this movement is extremely exciting and we are honored to be a part."

The Wear iT campaign was inspired by Chelsea Eubank, a college senior who also started a Christian clothing company called "Faithful Fish."

Eubank was volunteering for Fellowship of Christian Athletes when she found that some counties in the country were trying to eliminate FCA meetings. She decided to start a "wear your faith" movement to give young people the chance to personally show their commitment to Christ and to show the nation that Christians are excited and proud about the importance of faith in their lives.

"Imagine if you will, walking into a school on a Wednesday and seeing over half of the population wearing their faith. Would everyone be kinder to each other? What would the conversations be like? How many would ask to go to church on Wednesday evening with their friends?" the campaign poses.

Eubank's goal is to have one million students join the Wear iT Wednesday campaign.

Eubank was a churchgoer for many years before she had a relationship with God. It wasn't until her dad died, along with her grandparents and uncle, that she began to think seriously about God. She began Faithful Fish at the age of 17.
