Berryville, Ar, February 2, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Kerusso, a Christian-themed apparel and gift company located in Berryville, Ark., recently hired Chris Rainey as their Director of Marketing. Rainey worked for Kerusso between 2004 and 2010 and has been an ardent supporter of the company, since.

Rainey was also instrumental in the development of Kerusso’s Lighthouse Apparel Center and the launch of their first e-commerce website.
“Chris was one of those key players at Kerusso that really helped shift the company’s focus and propel us forward,” Kennett said. I’m really excited to have him back on board. He has always been one of Kerusso's best friends and biggest fans. He loves the Lord and mission behind what we do, but he is also a brilliant marketer.”
Apart from his work with Kerusso, Rainey was the youngest store manager in the history of Family Christian and co-led an international ministry through launching platforms including: websites, apps and podcasts.
“I’m excited to be returning to Kerusso at a time when the future is full of more opportunity than ever before,” Rainey said. “Kerusso doesn’t just produce t-shirts, jewelry and more, they are a lifestyle brand that helps people express the most important thing in their life, their faith. So, to be a part of helping people live out their beliefs is an honor and something I’m grateful for.”
