Who We Are

The University of Valley Forge was founded in 1939 and is part of an international network of Assemblies of God colleges and universities.


A private university with undergraduate, graduate, and lifelong learning programs, our mission is to prepare individuals for a life of service and leadership in the church and in the world.


Our community is small, close-knit, and diverse. Each member—student, faculty, and staff—supports and guides each other as we grow and develop intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially.
