Crown College is situated on a 193-acre campus near the communities of Waconia and St. Bonifacius, Minnesota. Nestled among the rolling hills of one of the most beautiful lake-dotted regions of Minnesota, the College is just minutes west of the bustling Twin Cites of Minneapolis and St. Paul, offering a place of retreat for learning and growth.

For 85 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 fifties, the name was changed to St. Paul Bible College, and accreditation was obtained through the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges (AABC). In the early seventies 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 again changed to Crown College.


The year 2000 saw the completion of the Stephen K. and Cheryl K. Wild Athletic Center, providing a double gymnasium with locker rooms, offices, weight training facilities, and a new campus restaurant. The newest additions to the campus are Tewinkel Hall, a men's residence, and Weldin Hall, a women's residence, both completed in early 2002.
