UVF’s 85th Baccalaureate & Commencement

On the third of May, 2023, the University of Valley Forge (UVF) held its 85th annual Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies and conferred degrees on the class of 2024. Students, family, and friends gathered in the Flower Chapel at 10 a.m. for a time of worship and a baccalaureate message from Dr. Jeff Thompson and seniors David Oduwole ’24 and Hannah Kopec ’24. The service was also live-streamed on the university’s website via YouTube and social media for those who were not present. Rev. Jennifer Gale, Vice President of Student Life, greeted those present and opened the service in prayer before a time of worship and the message. In keeping with the tradition of UVF’s baccalaureate services, the three speakers spoke about the legacy of the past, present, and future, and the faithfulness of God throughout.

President David J. Kim then introduced commencement speaker, Dr. Don Immel, Chairman of the Board Emeritus for the University of Valley Forge. Dr.  Immel serves as PennDel Ministry Network Superintendent serving over 390 churches and 1,200 ministers. Dr. Immel congratulated the class of 2024 for their accomplishments and taking a step of faith into their future.

After Dr. Immel’s message, Dr. David Dippold and President Kim presented each graduate with their respective graduate or undergraduate degree. These graduates have now joined the mission of thousands of other University of Valley Forge alumni to live a life of service and leadership in the church and in the world.
