Dave’s Designs come from the founder of Energize Ministries, Dave Annan.

Dave was our beloved pastor who fought a courageous four year battle

with cancer. In the final stages, when he was too weak to do anything else he would spend days, weeks, and months doodling and sketching out visual images related to his prayers and devotional time with the Lord.

We’ve printed some of his designs and encouragement onto some awesome T-shirts!

For a limited time we have opened an Energize Store where Dave’s Designs, one of a kind, T-shirts can be purchased.

All proceeds from his shirts and designs support Energize Ministries and our commitment to providing preventive care and prayer for our nation’s pastors and their families.
