Crown College is situated on a beautiful 215-acre campus about 30 minutes west of Minneapolis near Waconia, Minnesota. The College has existed to prepare people for life and ministry for 92 years.
Beginning in 1916 with four students who wanted to study the Bible, it quickly developed into a training school for those interested in ministry and missionary preparation. But it became known as St. Paul Bible Institute a few years later. It has gained a solid reputation as a leader in the Bible college movement throughout the Midwest.
But the College changed its name to St. Paul Bible College in the late '50s. It was accredited by The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). In the early '70s the College sought regional accreditation which was granted by The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) in 1975. Moreover, the College also is a member with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
In the following years the College expanded the curriculum with the introduction of many new majors and areas of study, as well as developing the campus with the addition of several housing facilities. In 1992, the name was again changed to Crown College.
Over 30 four-year programs in anything from pastoral leadership to nursing to communications are offered. Classes are available through the traditional on-campus program or through online or evening/weekend programs. Degree-completion programs and graduate degrees are also available.
Crown College receives outstanding support from the community and corporations in the area, and partnerships with the College are being formulated in locations across the country and throughout the world.
