Every nation, tribe, and tongue.

Those who minister at the intersection of faith, culture and power follow in the footsteps of Daniel, Esther, Nehemiah, Paul and other biblical role models. That’s who we aspire to be. With rigorous intercultural training, graduates will excel in the increasingly needed skills of behavioral and cognitive frame-shifting, serving in overseas roles and contemporary political settings.


International Relations

Our goal is to develop articulate professionals and thoughtful international workers who are able to serve in today’s demanding and shifting contexts. Built on the foundation of biblical truths, our International Relations degree program prepares students to integrate Jesus-centered faith with practical and fruitful service among the least-reached peoples of the globe.

I have the opportunity to not just be in a caring community, but a community that fosters the same values and faith. There are so many different perspectives here from students and professors, and it creates so many opportunities to grow.

Being at Crown makes you want to stay at Crown for the rest of your life; but being at Crown also gets you excited for what God is preparing you to do after college, too.
