University Chaplains

We don't represent any one religious tradition in our work. Instead we work with students from all traditions to coordinate religious and spiritual life at Furman. You'll run into us as we oversee religious-specific programs, inter-religious understanding, dialogue, and pastoral care. We also coordinate educational programs on moral, ethical, religious and spiritual issues and lead ecumenical community worship opportunities through the year.

Want to learn more about religious and spiritual life at Furman? We'll see you at the Chapel.
