Faith Forum Facilitator


Dr. Jim Knight

Jim was raised in a very conservative, evangelical church, and joined the United Methodist Church after marrying Lynda in 1970. It was through First UMC that wonderful teachers and pastors launched him on a life-long journey of self-guided study and exploration of the Christian faith. Jim is retired from the University of Florida after serving for more than 30 years as Dean of the Division of Continuing Education. A journalist in his early career, he now writes a monthly column on the contemporary Christian church for the Gainesville Sun. Contact Jim at
