History and Context
Crown College began as a small Bible College in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1916. For over 100 years, Crown has focused on preparing students to live out their faith in the world. Now located 40 minutes west of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Crown offers on-campus, online, and graduate degree programs. The community supports 16 NCAA Division III athletic teams and summer outreach programs around the globe. Though a lot has changed, the dedication to helping students grow in their faith has not. The institution’s programs deeply integrate a Christian worldview into every class, helping students to become all that God desires for them to be. Crown looks forward to the next 100 years through continued innovation in Christian higher education.
Crown College is the Midwest regional college of The Christian and Missionary Alliance, a missionary-oriented denomination with a national office in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

From the Chair of the Board of Trustees, Gordon Paisley
We are excited about the future of Crown despite today’s challenges in Christian higher education. Crown has been part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance for over one hundred years. We provide a Christ-centered education to prepare people to make a difference in the world. Crown prepares graduates for leadership roles wherever God calls them to serve. Crown has been a leader in developing both online Christian education as well as hybrid partnerships with churches to provide high-quality education anywhere in the world.
Our current President, Dr. Joel Wiggins, will leave Crown on June 30, 2021, to enjoy a well-deserved retirement. Dr. Wiggins, who has so ably served as President since 2013, will leave Crown in a strong position financially, academically, and relationally with partner churches and others. Beyond these accomplishments, there are still many opportunities for mission and impact growth.
