Concordia University has decided to cancel the 2020 Faith & Business Forum in Irvine, originally scheduled for March 26.

Although this is an unfortunate outcome of the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 crisis, your health and the well-being of your family and our community is more important.

Out of an abundance of caution for the entire campus community and the broader community, Concordia University Irvine is cancelling face-to-face instruction effective Friday, March 13 and will transition instruction to online formats effective Wednesday, March 18.

If you wish to secure a refund for your registration fees, please email Rev. Bil Hood, Director of Community Relations, at by March 20, 2020.

The Psalmist reminds us where to turn when we are feeling scared and fearful: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.” (Psalm 46:1-2a). May God provide you and your families a measure of comfort and strength in the coming days.
