Where Can I Get “In Jesus Name I Play” Wristbands and Other Apparel? Here’s Your Answer

Are you looking for the wristbands that New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin wears? Well here is some information on how to get them and who created them. Anthony Tolliver and Lanny Smith are the owners and creators of this brand. Both men are members of the Houston-based Lakewood Church, under pastor Joel Osteen. Lakewood has an Active Faith display in its stores. If you are not in the TX area and still would like to purchase these items then go to My Active Faith which was re-launched this weekend, and contact can be made via Twitter @Active_Faith. In Jesus Name I Play bands, like the ones Lin wears, can be purchased for $3. Among other items for sale: CrossFit shirts are $26, women’s yoga tights are $30 and hoodies are $45.

I must admit, I think these are a great reminder for parents to get for their children!

Be Blessed,

IJNIP is the acronym for our brand?s motto “In Jesus Name I Play” As a former basketball player, founder Lanny Smith had a pre-game ritual of praying before stepping on the court. Normally ending his prayers by saying “In Jesus? name I pray amen,” one game Lanny unconsciously said PLAY instead of pray. The slip up on words was profound as Lanny realized it was because of God?s blessing that he was able to do what he did on the court. So in essence, he did play in Jesus? name. In the process of creating the Active Faith Brand, the phrase “In Jesus Name I Play” naturally became the motto (From My Active Faith Website)
