    The Forum

    faith. reason. tomfoolery.

    The Forum is a unique ministry we host on Furman’s campus in the Haynsworth Room on the second floor of Furman Hall each Monday night during the academic year. These weekly conversations are aimed at promoting thoughtful exploration of Christian faith through intellectually and spiritually stimulating lectures and discussions about provocative topics. Through the Forum we create space for students and faculty to explore the depth and breadth of the Christian tradition and engage the life of the mind through a unique blend of faith, reason, and tomfoolery. The Forum is the centerpiece of our ministry on campus and the place where we reach out to a diverse group of students, faculty, and staff who engage seriously the Truth claims of Christianity and their intersections with culture, coursework, and relationships.

    Presenters for the Forum are traditionally Furman faculty or administrators, leaders from the Greenville community including clergy, non-profit executives, and business leaders, missionaries, and our Executive Director. During our semi-annual multi day Cultural Life Programs we also host nationally renowned scholars and thought leaders who bring a fresh perspective from beyond the Furman and Greenville communities.
