The God is Bigger Movement is a non-profit 501(C)3 independent organization that began in 2011 when the creator Rachel Shaneyfelt was diagnosed with Mesothelioma. Shaneyfelt started making and giving away t-shirts as a reminder that God is Bigger. When the t-shirts became too costly, Rachel developed a challenge for her small group after ordering the first batch of 1,000 God Is Bigger bracelets, asking members to give them away to a complete stranger. Within one week, they had all been given away.
Over the next six years, with the proceeds from GIBM merchandise and fundraisers, over 450,000 grey silicone bracelets have been given out worldwide to missionaries, charities, abused women, the homeless, for those who are hurting or lost, or given to total strangers as a reminder that, “When life gets big, God is bigger.” The ministry is based on Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible”.
In August 2017, Rachel Shaneyfelt, the founder of the God is Bigger Movement passed away after a six year battle with mesothelioma. It was Rachel’s wish that the God Is Bigger Movement continue. Her family and friends continue to spread the God is Bigger Movement in her honor to bring Glory to God.
