NHiM Apparel ~ “In Him we live & move & exist.” Acts 17:28. More than a brand. A movement. We create premium apparel and original designs to reflect who you are and to share your faith. Proceeds help orphans and underprivileged families globally.
NHiM was founded in December of 2014, by Matt and Diane in Colorado. Matt had a passion to start a brand with purpose. A brand that would become an everyday symbol for people to share their faith in a new and relevant way, speaking truth over themselves and others. So the NHiM logo was born and printed on just 12 tees. Friends & family became quick fans and were asking for more. So this husband & wife team began the journey to create a brand that would become a movement. Diane had a passion for helping orphans and so they set a goal to build a home for 12 orphans in India, fully funded by the brand. This seemed an impossible task, but they knew God loves big faith. Six months after starting the brand, they took another giant leap of faith and opened a small kiosk in Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree, CO. The brand was received so well that about a year later they opened their first full store in this same mall. In December of 2016, their dream to help orphans became a reality, when Matt & Diane traveled to India to open their first home for children in Ibrahimpatnam, India. Today the brand is continuing to grow and will be opening more locations throughout the U.S., along with giving back in greater ways each year.
To sum it up, we are a premium Christian clothing brand for men & women – promoting others to become everyday missionaries through casual conversations. These conversations can often happen over something as simple as a t-shirt or hat. We believe in being givers - giving back to build orphanages with the proceeds to give children a future filled with hope. We also are helping underprivileged families globally.
We accomplish all of this through high-quality clothing, pushing the envelope on creativity & design, and providing something for everyone. Our products range from our own unique and premium t-shirts, casual clothing, dresses, hats, accessories, jewelry, signs, candles and more. We also believe in the power of prayer, and we pray for our customers in store.
Our flagship store is at Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree Colorado, upstairs near the Buckle. You can also shop with us online.

In December 2016, NHiM Apparel opened its first home for 12 children in Ibrahimpatnam, India.
Learn more about Acts 17:28 and our inspiration to start the brand:
While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was deeply troubled by all the idols he saw everywhere in the city. He went to the synagogue to reason with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and he spoke daily in the public square to all who happened to be there. He also had a debate with some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers. When he told them about Jesus and his resurrection, they said, “What’s this babbler trying to say with these strange ideas he’s picked up?” Others said, “He seems to be preaching about some foreign gods.” Then they took him to the high council of the city. “Come and tell us about this new teaching,” they said. “You are saying some rather strange things, and we want to know what it’s all about.” (It should be explained that all the Athenians as well as the foreigners in Athens seemed to spend all their time discussing the latest ideas.) So Paul, standing before the council, addressed them as follows: “Men of Athens, I notice that you are very religious in every way, for as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: ‘To an Unknown God.’ This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I’m telling you about. “He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples, and human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and he determined their boundaries. “His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him—though he is not far from any one of us. For in him we live and move and exist.
There are many similarities to the spiritual climate of Acts 17 and our culture today. People are searching. Culture has crafted a god of its own making. Let’s call it the American Jesus, which is not defined by Christianity but by a blending of various beliefs, thoughts, and desires. Similar to the epicurean and stoic philosophers of Paul’s day, the American Jesus says you can have it your way; pleasure and absence of pain and disturbance. But that is not the message from the God of the Bible.
Just like Paul, we must tell others about the one true God, the One who is above all others. “The Unknown God” can in fact be known, and Jesus is the way to Him (Acts 17:23-24). There is no other life-giving message than the gospel of Jesus Christ as it is revealed in Scripture. Everything people are searching for can be found in a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Just like the early believers, we too must share and declare the one true God. Live out the gospel today, not only in word but also in action. (used with permission from Walk Through the Word Devotional)
