Who are the faculty members at Crown Southwest?
One of the themes of Norris Bible Baptist Institute was the idea of "preachers training preachers." At Crown Southwest we have continued this tradition. Classes are taught by area pastors, assistant pastors, youth directors, missionaries, evangelist, and pastor's wives. Students not only receive classroom instruct, but they are mentored by a dedicated faculty who have and are actively serving the Lord Jesus Christ. For a listing of faculty visit <OUR FACULTY>. In addition to the local faculty each semester a faculty member of The Crown College of the Bible comes to Crown Southwest to teach a module class.
What church will I attend?
Out of town students have the wonderful opportunity to be involved in one of the area local Independent Baptist churches in the metroplex. We feel the "hands on" experience you will receive while you are training is as important as the quality classroom instruct. All church ministry assignments for students are made by the Administration based on request received from area churches.
