Are you an alum of Valley Forge Christian College? Our Alumni area is made just for you.
Valley Forge Christian College (VFCC) was recently blessed by a heartwarming Chapel service when the Flower Chapel was filled with the song and dance of Mwamba Children’s Choir – a group of twelve children, ranging from 8-15 years old, all the way from Kampala, the capital city of Uganda in the heart of East Africa.
Mwamba Children’s Choir is a branch of I Am Children’s Family, a ministry that seeks to feed the hungry, care for the needy and house orphaned or abandoned children. The choir gives the children the opportunity to cultivate talents and change lives with music.
Mwamba, which means “rock” in Swahili, acts as a support for children of the I Am Children’s Family home. The choir creates awareness about the orphans and underprivileged children by fundraising and establishing relationships with organizations that are willing to facilitate (whether through prayer or contribution) the ministry’s dream of building a self-sustainable community for the children.
On October 29, Mwamba Children's Choir arrived on campus for a very special Missions Chapel, performing at an institution of higher education for the first time in the organization's five-year history. This stop in Phoenixville was a part of the “Music Changes Lives Tour," which started on the west coast of the U.S. in April and came to an end on the east coast in late November. Students and staff were blessed by a collection of songs that focused on the hope and salvation found in Christ, sung in eight different languages and accompanied by traditional African dance and percussion.
Numerous students and faculty expressed their appreciation of the performance, commenting that it was one of their favorite Chapel experiences; President Meyer even noted, “This will certainly be one of the highlights of our year.”
As an expression of gratitude and encouragement, the VFCC community of students and faculty donated over $700 to Mwamba Children’s Choir. If you would like to join with VFCC in the support of this ministry, or are simply interested in learning more, please visit www.mwambachildrenschoir.com. You can also find their complete discography on that site and their latest album on iTunes. View more photos of the event »

Curtain Call, the theater group at Valley Forge Christian College (VFCC), gave tremendous performances this October. For two consecutive weekends, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” was showcased in Krempels Theater. Student co-directors, Loren Metallo and Chris McNaney, proudly led the cast in a successful presentation of this world famous sketch-musical hybrid.
In “All I Really Need to Know," a play based on Robert Fulghum’s bestselling collection of essays, the audience was treated to a comical and heartwarming look at the profound moments of everyday life. The play itself is to drama what anthologies are to literature – a compilation of short stories, or skits, that circle the same central meaning. From social interaction to spirituality, this production offers insight on some of the most common situations with very uncommon perspectives.
“All I Really Need to Know” has a special place in Curtain Call's heart. After the student drama community at VFCC was established in 2003, this play was presented as their first production – standing as a clear landmark in the group’s history. As VFCC celebrates its 75th Anniversary, Curtain Call paid tribute to its 10 years of theatrical performances with a re-creation of the play that started it all.
The five on-stage cast members (Maranatha Purring, Mylove Isaac, Randy Stegner, Dane Duncan and Yolanda Alvarez) made this presentation of “All I Really Need to Know” a unique one. Rather than portraying the scripted characters, each stood as him or herself – sharing personal experiences of lessons learned in life. Curtain Call member Randy Stegner explained, “The actors in this production are not portraying original characters anymore than the audience is portraying the original set of spectators … they may not have written the script, but they have learned the lessons.”
