    God has made it apparent that The Crown College is where He wants me to go. I've never been there before, so the day I move into my dorm is the day I see the school for the first time.
    It will be my first time going to an out-of-state school. I was just wondering if there is anyone who goes there or is planning to go there who can give me any kind of tips? I don't really know what I'm asking for. lol It just seems like I can't find anything about this College unless it's from the official website. But I would just like to hear from real students. It would be nice to hear from someone who is already there I guess...

    Thank you,
    Kat

    Hi Kat,

    I don't think there are any Crown College students on the BB, but I'll pm you a link where you might find some.

    There are several Crown Colleges.

    Crown College (MN), C&MA school founded nearly a century ago, referred to in the last post. http://www.crown.edu

    The Crown College of the Bible (TN), IFB outfit started in the 1990s by Clarence Sexton, onetime bus ministry director for Lee Roberson. This is likely the one referred to in the OP. http://thecrowncollege.com

    Crown Southwest (TX), originally the [J. Frank] Norris Bible Baptist Institute founded in the 1980s by a splinter group of Norris followers. Recently turned over to Sexton. http://www.crownsouthwest.org

    Which Crown college? In Tennessee or in Minnesota? They are pretty different.

    Sorry, only now saw the other posts. ImOnlyMe profile says "independant Baptist" so i am thinking they mean in Tennessee.

    Tom Sexton used to be the Bus Director at Highland Park BC back when Dr. Roberson was there. He's been at the church for a long time.

    Dr. Sexton is a good man. I knew him many years ago when I was just a camp counselor and he was a young pastor. He later sent me a copy of his book on soul-winning, Won by One, and it was good. I've kept track of his ministry over the years and rejoice at how the Lord has used him.

    I don't know a whole lot about the school, but we visited Crown once on a furlough and I was very impressed. To my knowledge it's a good school. I'm received the impression that they try to do things first class.

    So you have this extra bit of revelation from God and none if it involves wisdom in checking the school out?? YIKES! Maybe you deserve Crown College.
