Forum on Faith and Life

Forum on Faith and Life

The Forum on Faith and Life, an expression of the college mission, has three primary goals:

  • Facilitate thoughtful and informed reflection in community on issues of ultimacy regarding faith and life
  • Create opportunities for genuine encounter and dialogue with the intrafaith and interfaith neighbor
  • Foster a deeper, more compassionate understanding of one another across traditional boundaries.

The Forum on Faith and Life plays a key role in helping the college live into its Interfaith Cooperation Statement:

“Concordia College practices interfaith cooperation because of its Lutheran dedication to prepare thoughtful and informed global citizens who foster wholeness and hope, build peace through understanding, and serve the world together.”

Every academic year, the Forum on Faith and Life also selects two students to serve as Interfaith Scholars. The Interfaith Scholars receive a fellowship for their service and are responsible for helping the director of the Forum and the college’s Better Together Interfaith Alliance student group to design and implement interfaith programming both on campus and in the greater community.
