The SJSU Faculty Staff Christian Fellowship is organized for the purpose of honoring and glorifying God. We do this by praying for the well-being of the University community, by setting forth a positive example of the Biblical Christian worldview, by attending to the needs of the campus community, and by sharing the love of God through Jesus Christ.

We welcome all who would like to learn more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus or who desire to glorify God on the SJSU campus.

What Gives You Hope?

Professors from the SJSU Faculty/Staff Christian Fellowship share about what gives them hope.

Next Meetings

The group plans to meet at 1 p.m. on second and fourth Fridays in 2020-2021.  This should continue through June and July.  There will not be a meeting on the 9th of July.  At 1 p.m. on Friday the 23rd of July 2021 the group will meet through Zoom.   Please ask Buff Furman ( for the Zoom meeting id and password.  

Faculty Commons, a ministry of Cru, sends a weekly note called "Missional Moment".  Some that might be good for discussion have been collected at and anyone willing to lead a discussion may sign up on the spreadsheet there.  

A much larger archive and the form to subscribe to the weekly "Missional Moment" (starting again in the fall) is at .

The name of the group emphasizes staff and faculty, but students and others are welcome.  


Buff Furman's "Missional Moment" has an article sent through Faculty Commons in which Buff Furman discusses "Oddly enough, I find the more religious people are, the less likely they are to actually pay attention to what is written in the biblical text."
