About God First

GOD FIRST, GREATNESS FOLLOWS.

In 2012, Deandre Davenport printed “God First” on a shirt, reminding himself to put God and others first.

This shirt compelled more people than Deandre could’ve imagined— friends, family, community members, and even complete strangers. People wanted to buy shirts of their own, moved by the power of the message.

And so GOD FIRST™ was born. Soon after, orders for athletic wear, hats, umbrellas, coffee mugs, and more came rolling in, as did requests for GOD FIRST™ clothing in different languages.

The design and message of GOD FIRST™ resonates with people of all colors, shapes, and backgrounds. It has the power to transform the way people look at themselves and others.

As a community leader and advocate for the homeless, Deandre wants GOD FIRST™ to inspire people to pay it forward and share the gifts that God has given them. As George Washington Carver said, “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”
