Spirituality on Campus

At the University of Valley Forge, your student will have many opportunities to grow spiritually – to know God. From daily chapel services to participation in Small Groups and fellowship with students and faculty, opportunities to let God shape them are everywhere. UVF is a Christian college, and we take seriously the values and behavior that represents the Christian lifestyle. Because we do, we’ve established standards of conduct that contribute to an environment that honors Christ.

 

Chapel

Spiritual life at UVF is centered around our chapel services. Students, staff and faculty members come together daily as a body of believers that seek to honor Christ and worship God. Each day from 10–11 am, they’ll join the rest of UVF in the Flower Chapel for worship, prayer and meditation on God's word. Chapel services are diverse and intended to help your child experience spiritual growth and development.

Theologically Distinct: Denominationally Diverse

The University of Valley Forge is a co-educational college of the Assemblies of God for the Northeast Region. Each week, more than 2.6 million people worship in more than 12,000 Assemblies of God churches across the country. Even though UVF represents the Assemblies of God, our students come from many different denominations.

Small Groups

Small Groups at UVF are student-led ministries. They use prayer, Bible study, accountability and outreach to promote fellowship, build community and foster spiritual growth. Although we don’t require it, we do encourage student participation in a Small Group.

The Prayer Chapel

The historic Mason Chapel was originally built as the Memorial Chapel for Valley Forge General Hospital. It now serves as a classroom, student preaching chapel and, most importantly, as the prayer chapel. There are bulletin boards on each wall of the entry to Mason Chapel with prayer cards expressing UVF community needs and concerns, as well as issues regarding our missionaries and their families.
