Missions at Valley Forge

T41A0260
Missions is a big part of the University of Valley Forge (UVF) community. This year, nine teams are heading out to meet needs both locally and abroad. Trip locations include: Russia, Haiti, Hawaii, the Mohawk Reservation in New York, Nicaragua, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and India. Each trip has a different focus on an aspect of missions, but students from all majors will be participating in things like children’s ministry, clinics, construction, digital media, and drug rehabilitation.

At the beginning of the year, approximately 100 students participated in Impact Training Weekend to prepare for mission trips going out this spring break and summer. Teams spent the night together building community by playing games together, preparing for the field by trying exotic foods and working with interpreters, praying for their individual trips, and learning about missions from Pastor Jermel Mayo and a panel of speakers.

One student shared her experience preparing for the trip with her teammates: "My team and I have been raising money for our mission trip to Haiti this spring break where we will be leading a four-day VBS for the Haitian children. In order to raise money, we have sent out letters to multiple churches, family members, and friends asking for funds. We also sold drinks and snacks during Christmas at the Forge. Our team has been working hard to plan the VBS services by practicing every Sunday for at least two hours. We are currently finalizing the structure and lesson plan for each VBS day. We still have another four weeks until flying off to Haiti, but our team is very excited to be embarking on this incredible journey. We ask for prayers as we continue to raise money for this, but we know that God will provide!"

In addition to these great teams, the entire student body continues to support missionaries to Ireland and Indonesia along with the local Teen Challenge through tithe, offering, and faith promises. UVF’s heart for missions is beating stronger than ever, and students can’t wait to see lives changed at home and around the world!  

Please pray for the Valley Forge mission teams and missionaries as they do God's work in the world! If you would like to contribute to our missionaries and teams, follow these links!

His Presence

T41A0347

The University of Valley Forge (UVF) community is excited to be welcomed back for another term, and to begin a new season of growth. The previous theme of Behold and Become has already blessed the students and faculty with a semester of learning about His Gospel; continuing forward, the focus this semester is His Presence and the mission is to Abide and Live. For the next four months, students will come together to experience God’s presence in their lives in new and exciting ways.

One way UVF has done this is through Sacred Assemblies. Students joined together as a community to worship and to pray in chapel services as small groups, one-on-one, and individually. These Sacred Assemblies strengthened and focused students for the semester ahead, as well as brought a new sense of unity to our school. The week ended with dorm chapel; students met with the other members of their floors to not only spend time together forming connections, but to experience the presence of God in a smaller, more personal, group setting. To keep the momentum going for the rest of the year, great chapel speakers are lined up to encourage, challenge, and guide students to deeper relationships with God and a constant awareness of His voice in their lives.

During the first week of school, Dr. David Dippold and President Kim shared about staying focused on God in a world full of distractions. This past week, Reverend Jennifer Gale delivered a message about the all-important topics of abiding and rest. Matthew 11:28-30 says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (NIV). Everyone has burdens placed on themselves, she taught, but they allow people to recognize that they need God. Once they have done so, they can cast off their burdens to take up His. A yoke is still an instrument of work, but the burden is shared with Jesus.

This semester, the University of Valley Forge’s continuing prayer is for spiritual focus and growth, and the students’ enthusiasm for God and His presence has already filled the campus with hope and energy. Students and faculty alike are eagerly looking forward to a fruitful season and successful semester ahead!
