The founders of Crowley’s Ridge College strongly desired to assist congregations through the work of CRC graduates. They envisioned CRC alumni laboring with congregations as preachers, teachers, song leaders, and mission workers. They knew many students would meet their spouses at CRC and begin their Christian families as they became active members in hundreds of congregations. Those dreams have come true many, many times through the lives of CRC students.
The Christian environment of CRC truly does change the lives of our students. Part of the reason for such Christian success is because of our Bible program, which now includes the five Bible related degrees listed next and a host of Christian experiences at CRC, including chapel, devotionals, and a campus ministry focused at touching the hearts of our students as they mature as Christians and succeed in all aspects of life.
- Associate in Biblical Studies
- Associate in Ministry
- Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies
- Bachelor of Arts in Youth & Family Ministry
- Bachelor of Science in Christian Leadership & Management

Go Pioneers!!! One of our former teachers had such a booming voice as he proclaimed that phrase at our collegiate games. We are keeping the Pioneer enthusiasm going as CRC’s intercollegiate sports program, today, includes men’s baseball, basketball, cross country, and golf; women’s basketball, cross country, softball, and volleyball.
Through the years, Crowley’s Ridge College has gone from competing independently, NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association), ACCA (Association of Christian College Athletics), NSCAA (National Small College Athletic Association, NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association), to where we are now, competing in the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics). We have made great strides through the years and we invite you to come join us and cheer on the Pioneers at any of our home or away games. You can keep up with the Pioneers at http://www.crcpioneers.com/index.php
As you can imagine, providing an athletic program that competes in the NAIA is a costly endeavor. Part of the reason we provide athletics is that students are activity driven. CRC has excellent athletes who excelled in high school sports and desire to continue competing. Every athlete is also important to God’s kingdom as we provide a Christian atmosphere for their continued competition, academic, and spiritual learning.
We need your financial support in our Pioneer athletics as we improve and maintain our gym, the Carter Activities Center, add a Pioneer Performance Center for strengthening and conditioning, supply our athletes with nice uniforms and gear, maintain our bus and van fleet, and travel expenses as we compete in several states.
Please join us at Crowley’s Ridge College for our 19th Annual Bible Lectureship on April 7-10, 2019. We will be focused on the book of Romans and the theme will be “the Righteousness of God.” We have an excellent group of speakers lined up for our daily men and women’s sessions and our keynote evening sessions. A schedule will be available soon that you can download and share with others. Bring a van or bus load from your congregation.
Lastly, CRC does not charge for our Annual Bible Lectureship. It would be very helpful to have churches and individuals give toward the cost of providing this Christian event.
The Choralaires and Ambassadors are both a long-standing tradition within the music department of Crowley’s Ridge College. Students try out for the Choralaires choral group each year and are selected from the Choralaires to also participate in the Ambassadors, a smaller group. The Choralaires and Ambassadors perform acapella hymns, worship, spiritual, and praise songs at a number of congregations annually. They also perform at senior care facilities and other venues during the Christmas holiday season.
Please join us in contributing toward the expenses of traveling, music materials, and music scholarships awarded to students selected for the Choralaires and Ambassadors.
CRC DAY is an annual Sunday that we ask congregations and their members to support the Bible related needs of Crowley’s Ridge College. CRC DAY occurs at most congregations on the second Sunday in June of each year.
One hundred percent of the funds collected for CRC DAY will be used for CRC’s Bible department needs, including Bible major student scholarships, preacher training, Restoration tour field trip, annual Bible Lectureship, and Bible educational materials.
As a private, not for profit Christian college, raising support is very critical to our ongoing success. CRC is not included in the budget of the state of Arkansas as public universities and colleges are in this state. We must rely on God, and, on church support, friends, and other supporters in funding CRC’s needs such as our Bible program.

Staying on top of technology is very important all over the globe and is a critical component of higher education. Crowley’s Ridge College has made numerous technology improvements to enable a more successful learning environment for our students in the classrooms and throughout campus. Installing fiber optics, creating multiple computer labs, purchasing classroom computer equipment, virtual devices, learning and library software, projection and sound equipment, and other technological improvements are a tremendous help to our students, faculty, and staff.
Keeping technology updated is expensive, but CRC’s IT department does the majority of the work, which helps keeps the costs as low as possible.
We encourage you to use the link below if you have an interest in helping CRC cover the numerous costs associated with technology, which directly helps our students, faculty, and staff.
