Spreading God's Word in Style
Lumont Deshield, Jr. Bio
“JesusGang is a Ministry.
JesusGang is a record label.
JesusGang is a clothing line.
JesusGang represents positivity.
As always, we spread God’s word in style.”
Psalms 96:3 says, “Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.” It’s part of a hymn lifting up the Lord and praising Him for all that he has done. JesusGang, is eager to declare glory, spread His love, and shine His light. We are filled with God's love and filled with the blessings of the Spirit that we cannot keep silent.

We are a group of people spreading God's Word in Style. We respect others regardless of religious and systematic differences. The Jesusgang brand may sound controversial but it is actually biblically based. We take negative (gang) and turn it into a positive. Jesus himself traveled with a gang (his apostles).
