On December 31, 2013, Valley Forge Christian College (VFCC) received its largest gift in it's 75 year history - the Conference Center at Valley Forge (formerly the National Christian Conference Center) located in Phoenixville, Pa. The property was gifted free and clear of financial debts and will be used to expand educational services at VFCC. The conference center is located adjacent to the Schuylkill River, about four miles from the VFCC campus. 

Mike Andriano has been hired to serve as the executive director, effective on a full-time basis as of the first of the new year. Andriano will focus on developing and expanding the conference center programs, as well as managing everyday operations at the property. 

Andriano's combination of ministerial and entrepreneurial experience make him a perfect fit for this role. He comes from River Run Christian Church in Chuluota, Fl., where he planted a church and served as pastor for 15 years while growing the congregation to 1,500 with multiple campuses. Other experience includes working as a consultant for Boeing, and as an event manager for Robert Ryan Catering & Design. 

VFCC looks forward to having Andriano serve as part of the college at our expanded location.
