Why Bible + Theology at Crown College?

Crown was founded as an institution dedicated to training up those who could teach and preach the Bible. Over 100 years later, we are still dedicated to that mission. Our Bible and Theology department focuses on developing students who are competent at understanding the Bible and who can practically apply it to everyday life. Whether exegesis or hermeneutics, students will dive deep into God’s word. This all happens with phenomenal professors, smaller class sizes, and a schoolwide community who are committed to Christ. Students graduate and continue to graduate school, full-time ministry, or overseas ministry. With the Christian and Missionary Alliance as our core denomination, you get theology that majors on the majors and minors on the minors, preparing you for the diverse world of theology while remaining with your convictions.
