Concordia University is proud to present Southern California’s 15th Annual Faith & Business Forum. Each year, the Forum brings together hundreds of Christian business professionals to learn that our hands are not tied if we integrate our faith into our business. On the contrary, we have an extra set of hands to lead us and guide us. For the past fifteen years, the Forum has partnered with C-Level executives from some of today’s leading Fortune 500 companies to serve as our keynote speaker. Their stories of how faith has impacted their day to day business, leadership style and employees has been an inspiration for thousands of business professionals and community leaders since the launch of the Forum.
This year, we are truly excited to present Dr. John Townsend as our keynote speaker. For more than twenty years Dr. Townsend has engaged with leaders, organizations and individuals around the globe, offering them life-changing solutions to their problems. He is a co-host of the nationally-syndicated talk show “New Life Live” which is heard in 180 markets with 3 million listeners and author of the N.Y. Times bestseller - “Boundaries”. This past year Dr. Townsend partnered with Concordia University Irvine to establish the Townsend Institute for Leadership and Counseling, which offers online graduate degrees and credentialing in three content areas: Organizational Leadership, Executive Coaching and Counseling.

Boundaries for Leaders: Why Some People Get Results and Others Don’t
Why does a company flourish under one leader while it declines under another capable individual? Why do some teams outperform other teams within the same company?
Dr. John Townsend will offer insights on the tools and techniques leaders need to achieve the performance they desire.
In 2017, Dr. John Townsend launched the Townsend Institute at Concordia University Irvine, bringing two new master’s programs in Counseling and Organizational Leadership and three certificates in these fields, as well as Executive Coaching. Townsend is a business consultant, New York Times bestselling author, psychologist and leadership coach. He is a co-host of the nationally-syndicated talk show “New Life Live” and has written or co-written 30 books, selling 10 million copies, including the bestselling Boundaries series and The Entitlement Cure, an ECPA 2015 Book of the Year finalist. The 25th anniversary edition of Boundaries comes out this month.
