For 95 years, Crown College has existed to prepare people for life and ministry. 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. A few years later, it became known as St Paul Bible Institute, gaining a solid reputation as a leader in the Bible college movement throughout the Midwest.
In the late ’50s, the name was changed to St. Paul Bible College, and accreditation was obtained through 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. 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 changed to Crown College and in 2011 a re-branding occurred to update the face of the college while maintaining the heart for a Christ-centered, academically-excellent & globally-connected education focus.
