With the changes that were made for spring semester due to Covid-19, we were unable to have a normal Awards Day. Instead, members of the faculty and staff recorded videos presenting their awards. Those videos have been compiled to one video. The faculty and staff at CRC are proud of each and every one of our students for a great school year, and especially a great spring semester given the changes that had to be made due to Covid-19. ...

CRC DAY 2020 is scheduled for June 14. We hope you and your congregation will help support CRC DAY this year.
This year’s CRC DAY will help support these Bible department needs, estimated at $200,000:
· Bible major student scholarships
· Church related scholarships
· Preacher training
· Bible educational materials
· Restoration, missions, and other field trips
CRC DAY gifts will also help support these Campus Ministry areas, estimated at $100,000:
· Campus Minister – CRC hired full-time person for this needed position to help us connect with every student. Part of the Campus Minister’s salary and benefits are expenses not in CRC’s previous budget since this was formerly only a part-time position.
· Campus Ministry House – $45,000 to $60,000 to improve some of the interior and exterior, purchase furniture, adding technology for the campus ministry great room, study, and game room in the basement, and outside fellowship areas.
Not being able to visit our churches and donors may reduce the amount of CRC DAY gifts and other donations given to Crowley’s Ridge College. I realize some giving to churches may be down as well. If you and your congregation are able, please donate toward CRC DAY. This annual campaign is very important to meet CRC’s annual budget for the above areas. This postcard graphic tells you how to mail your CRC DAY gift or you can donate online. Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
CRC's love and concern for the African American Community:
It is with deep sadness, anger, and a flood of other emotions that come to mind as I watched the video showing the inhumane, tragic, and needless death of George Floyd, an African American man who lost his life on May 25 in Minnesota. Nothing can justify this horrific tragedy nor can words describe. I do not pretend to know how or what the African American community is feeling during these past few days. However, on behalf of Crowley’s Ridge College, I do want everyone to know that our board, faculty, and staff are mourning with the African American community throughout this nation and we are very sorry for the hatred and lack of concern that allowed the death of Mr. Floyd to occur. I want our African American students to especially know at this very second, we are concerned about you, we are praying for you, and we pledge to listen to you as you convey to us your concerns and needs surrounding this heartrending tragedy. Please know that we love you and will do everything we can to make Crowley’s Ridge College a place of love and acceptance, where we can talk and learn from each other, and strive to be the servants that God wants each of us to be. As our students return to campus, we plan to discuss these injustices further, try to heal hurts, take away fears, and learn how to use our lives for good and not evil. May God bless each of you and know that CRC loves and cares for each of you, too.
