The Story Of Club Bones

Before actually telling you the story of Club Bones, we have to tell you about another awesome organization called Come&Live!. As their mission statement says, C&L! “is a non-profit community dedicated to proclaiming the good news of Jesus”. By joining hands with artists {musicianaries}, they provide them with guidance, direction and accountability to model a life of genuine faith. Their focus is in promoting the only true enduring treasure – loving others and living like JESUS. They choose to share music and profit as a humble example of radical generosity. They live simply to give generously, encouraging others to do the same. Their prayer is that God would use us to Give. Love. Share. and Revive.

This is the story that inspired Barrett Colvin to start Club Bones. With the help of a few close friends who contribute by designing, screen printing, cutting, and sewing, Barrett tries to provide the most affordable clothing possible and still be able to donate a good chunk to the ministry.

The idea came about one day this last summer when he was thinking about his band’s record label, Come&Live! He wanted to create an organization that contributed to building the ministry. While playing around with name ideas for the company, he couldn’t escape the message Ezekiel 37 tells; the people who had been feeling deserted by God, with no hope for the future, are being reassured that God has the power to resurrect them. He want to motivate an army of believers willing to serve God and follow Him to restore hope and be a part of something bigger than themselves, to breathe life into dry bones. I shared my vision for the company with my friend, Anton Warkentin, and we collaborated together to design a logo based on the infinite triangle; a structural identity representing pieces fitting together like bones. I then put together the first pair of Bones alpargatas (a popular Argentinean shoe) and the journey began!

Barrett donates $10 per purchase to Come&Live!. Thinking that the alpargatas only cost $35 dollar, he’s doing an amazing job.

Barrett explains: “God calls us to create new and fresh ways of reaching unbelievers. Our generation is full of believers who are coming before Jesus willing and ready to follow the example He set; to love others selflessly and give of themselves. It’s amazing to see the rise of outspoken Christians in the hardcore music scene or young kids like my sister who lead foundations, like Cupcakes for Cancer, to raise money for kids battling the life threatening disease. My desire to serve God precedes all other desires. As a graphic designer and illustrator, I am always thinking of new and exciting ideas to glorify God through my artwork. God takes my creative mindset and brings me into fresh new areas of ministry. Club Bones is the culmination of my love for art, God, and His people.”

I hope that everyone will be inspired by this story; Christian, Muslim or Atheist. Fight for your beliefs and help companies in the music industry or any other sector that are making a statement in any way you can.
