The Furman Wesley Fellowship is a group of Christian students supported by the United Methodist Church. Not all of the students in the group are United Methodist, but the structure and emphasis of the group are founded on the principles of Methodism. John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, had a strong commitment to living the life of faith, not just talking about it. The Wesley Fellowship at Furman tries to also put our faith into action. We do this through weekly programs, Bible study, missions, retreats, fellowship, and much more.
Throughout the year we offer the opportunity to gather in small groups around various topics. We have found that smaller, more focused gatherings, offer a unique perspective on our faith journey. Currently we are providing a Freshmen Group, a Sophomore/Junior Group, and a Senior Group. If you have a creative idea for a Small Group, let us know!
Our Wesley Fellowship finds importance in offering our gifts to help others though missions. Mission trips are planned over school breaks with smaller projects on weekends during the year. We use Spring Break for larger [and longer] mission trips. The past few years we have taken mission trips to Mississippi, New York City, Jacksonville, FL, New Orleans, Washington DC, and Miami. .
