FAITH & CO.
FAITH & CO.
Aligning your work with your faith
Faith & Co. is a 13-part documentary series by Seattle Pacific University, 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 reimagine business practices to more closely align with God’s creative and redemptive agenda.
Faith & Co. is a partnership between academic departments, entrepreneurial companies, and mission-driven institutions.
Supported by generous donor funding and facilitated by Seattle Pacific University, this bold experiment in exploring the potential of educational film and Christian vocation has united a team of experts to deliver rigorous, high-quality resources in the spirit of teaching and learning.
