Not Dead Yet
Dave Monson of Saddleback Leather Company
The Munsons not only see business as something that can support ministry/missions, but as a mission all its own — loving people, especially customers and employees, many of whom work in their factory in Leon, Mexico. While serving as a missionary/English instructor in Mexico, Dave Munson started a side business in 2003 out of the back of his truck. Today, he and his wife, Suzette, own and operate Saddleback Leather Company, a high-end leather goods business that has attracted a cult-like following for the beauty and quality of its products.
In Partnership with FAITH & CO
Faith & Co. is a documentary series by Seattle Pacific University (https://spu.edu). which highlights the struggles, triumphs, and stories of people like you: businesspeople wrestling with what it means to live out business as their calling. Through these inspiring examples, filmed across three continents and 18 U.S. cities and featuring a wide range of industries — high tech, health care, retail, and property development — we seek to provoke questions and provide insights about what it means to act as faithful followers of Christ in business. Whether you are a business professional, a minister, a student, or simply someone interested in exploring how the Christian faith is lived out in the global marketplace, Faith & Co. challenges traditional assumptions and hopes to inspire you to re-imagine business practices to more closely align with God’s creative and redemptive agenda.
