Kerusso is the Greek word for "preach."
Proclaiming the Good News to the world through products about Jesus.
"Change your shirt. Change the world!"
Vic Kennett, just 23 years old and working construction, in 1987 saw a t-shirt with a faith message and was inspired to share his faith in the same way. He started his company with a $1,000 family loan, a table top screen printing press and homemade dryer in a spare room at home, and just three designs. Today Kerusso is the premier producer of Christian-themed Apparel, Jewelry & Accessories.
Kerusso has grown well beyond the Kennett family home, now with more than 100 employees at its 65,000-square-foot complex on its campus in Berryville, Ark. In 1998, gifts, jewelry and accessories joined the company’s Christian clothing line. Today, Kerusso products can be found at more than 5,000 retail outlets in over100 countries around the globe.
Kerusso has donated thousands of t-shirts to churches; boys and girls ranches; shelters; and disaster-stricken areas—most recently to relief efforts in the wake of the deadly tornados in Alabama and Joplin, Mo.
