Bachelor of Arts (BA)

The pastoral leadership bachelor’s degree is for Minnesota students ready to enact exciting and transformational changes in churches across America. The program prepares and equips students to lead and shepherd healthy churches filled with disciples made through The Great Commission.

Crown’s pastoral leadership program in Minnesota builds on a foundational study of the humanities and sciences, the Bible, and theology. The curriculum includes courses on Bible-based preaching and leadership. Students are allowed elective hours, which may be used for a minor or concentration in a particular area of ministry.

Students are encouraged to complete the Greek language concentration that offers a study of the New Testament in its original language. This concentration is valuable for biblical preaching and further theological study, especially for graduates planning to advance their studies in seminary. Many seminaries grant Crown graduates free credits because of our students’ sound foundation in bible studies, and their immersive six-month internship of practical ministry experience.


At Crown College, well over 90% of our new graduates are employed or continuing their education in a master’s degree program.

The Office of Career Development at Crown is here to help you with your future career and can assist with resume development, career counseling, internships, and job placement. We encourage you to visit the office during your first year to begin planning your internship opportunities as well as developing a professional network.
