From A Career Standpoint, What Students Will Be Prepared To Do With A Degree From Your Program:
Our program equips students to make disciples of all age groups and cultural contexts. Pastoral Leadership majors are prepared to step into a local church pastorate or staff setting, to preach God’s Word, cast vision, shepherd God’s people and equip them to make disciples

Testimony:
I feel blessed to have been born into a family where Christ was central. I accepted Jesus Christ as Savior at a young age, was nurtured in the church, and during high school was shaped by my church youth ministry and summer church camps, where I dedicated my life anew to Christ.

Favorite Bible Verse:
“I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” – Galatians 2:20

Before Crown:
I pastored two congregations in Michigan.
