Crown College and The Christian and Missionary Alliance

Partners through the ages

From the very beginning in 1916, Crown College has been aligned with The Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination. While students attending Crown come from many different church denominations, Crown is one of four Alliance colleges in the United States (and the only one with a football team). Today, over 5 million Christians, from 81 different countries call themselves "Alliance."  

The Alliance (C&MA) is a light-bearing, Jesus-centered missions and church-planting movement with the deeper life at its heart. Rather than just a denomination intent on building its own kingdom, the Alliance are a people who "go" and do so out of a love for Jesus Christ that compells them to fulfill His last command on earth--the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 18-20).
