The word "OVerus" means "acceptable" as it relates to Christian stewardship. The word is derived from the Latin "verus," which translates to "true" or "proper." The Latin to English translation of OVerus is, "of truth," or "a longing for truth."
We also like to thing that God watches, "Over Us."
The mission of The OVerus Organization is to mark products and services that respect Christian values with The OVerus Emblem, enabling good stewards to choose those consistent with their values.
Similar devices with which you may be familiar include the USDA Organic® mark, Fair Trade® logo, the Good Housekeeping® Seal of Approval®, and kosher marks.
