School of Business

Small Business & Entrepreneurship

Obtain the skills necessary for starting and operating a small business, and build a biblical foundation for life at the same time! Christians in business have a unique and important role in advancing God’s work.



The School of Business is uniquely designed to equip students with employable skills and certifications applicable to a small business setting. As with all other fields of study at Crown, students also receive a solid, biblical foundation by taking a core of selected Bible courses and by participating in local church ministry endeavors.

Our training in business is distinctive because it provides students the opportunity to earn recognized certifications in areas such bookkeeping, project management, entrepreneurship, leadership, and more. From preparing a business plan to building a website and marketing a service or product, graduates are ready to enter into the business world, and to do so with a testimony that honors Christ.

Two degrees are offered in the School of Business — Associate of Biblical Studies in Office Management (2-year) and Bachelor of Biblical Studies in Small Business Administration & Entrepreneurship (4-year).
