A little over 3 years ago Plane N Simple launched sales on November 7, 2014. As a couple of young teenagers, we desired to do something different with our lives. Back then, Plane N Simple was a creative venture that allowed us to not conform to the normal high-school mindset. Over time we learned, experienced, and matured tremendously in what it looks like to run a small business. Plane N Simple has been a part of who we are as people since before it began. As we have changed over the years, so has our business.
In the Summer of 2017, our CEO Matt Owens set out to do a Discipleship Training Program through YWAM (Youth With A Mission). Through the 6 month experience, his life was altered forever. It was more than a transformation, it was the starting point of an eternal relationship with Jesus. Because of all the transformation that happened with Matt, he naturally began to evaluate the meaning of everything he did, including his business endeavors.
As Matt discovered his identity, Plane N Simple also did. As believers, we live to glorify God in everything that we do. No matter what, our aim is to see the Kingdom come and God's will be done. This prefaces our vision for our brand...
Mission/Purpose: We strive to glorify the Kingdom by symbolically clothing ourselves with the virtues of Jesus. "Outward expressions of an internal reality."
We create products that are based on Biblical principles, with the hope to inspire you to symbolically clothe yourself with Christ.
Constantly throughout the bible God speaks about symbolically clothing ourselves. We as believers are called to clothe ourselves with the virtues of Christ. There are several different verses that show us that: “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” “May your priests, Lord God, be clothed with salvation, may your faithful people rejoice in your goodness.” “For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness.” There are many verses that talk about this theme of being “clothed with power from on high.” — These are NOT just bible verses… they're our identity! When we receive the identity and clothing that God robes us with, we realize who we're made to be.
So from this point on, every time someone puts on Plane N Simple clothing it should be a reminder that they are clothed with the power from on high. It should be an outward expression of an internal reality.
Name Meaning: The Lord spoke very clearly to a friend of ours, Spencer Wilson, who was with Matt during his time at YWAM. Through Spencer, he revealed the meaning behind the spelling of our name! When we originally named our brand we we spelled plain like ‘plane’, and we used the paper airplane as our logo. We actually did't have any reason for doing this back then. 4 years later, by speaking to Spencer, God showed us that He has breathed over this company since it’s beginning and that the true meaning behind our name is much greater than we ever thought.
Plane = The Spirit of God
Simple = The Simple Gospel
We have to have both Spirit and Truth. Without the spirit the word is just an open book. Without the word, we burnout.
Just like every Plane needs a runway, we need to be grounded in the Simple Gospel!
We physically touch & pray over each piece of material that comes in and garment that goes out. In this process ask God to plant seeds of praise through the garments which would lift off any heaviness in the customers life! There is power in prayer and our hope is that people will be impacted and encountered through
Plane N Simple apparel.
