City Vision is very focused on providing extremely practical Christian education for those interested in Addiction Counseling and Nonprofit Management. City Vision offers fewer degrees than the mega-universities, but the degrees that we do, we do very well. We like to think of ourselves similar to the family-run hardware store where staff can answer all your questions with personalized service as opposed to the big box department stores like Walmart that offer everything.

Ultimately, choosing City Vision’s national accreditation over a regionally accredited school is a question of value: you get more for your money with City Vision. If you need the “gold plating” of regional accreditation for one of the reasons described above, then it may be worth paying 2-10 times more to get a degree with regional accreditation from another school. However, because of the career choices of our students, they prefer to choose the value of City Vision rather than more expensive high-end options.
Nice post but while it sounds good in theory, faith based businesses don’t work well. My first passion as a Christian who loves tech was to create a business that would serve the community. I started from an events platform to an online radio station. I did this because I identified gaps in the market. There wasn’t any doubt that it would meet a need. However, most people wanted to use the services for free. Had many who came for what they could get and then left when they were asked to pay. They seem happy to pay with a “God will bless you”. However after many God bless you, there were no money to keep things afloat and they fail miserably.
Imagine for a second that you obtain an education becoming licensed as a general contractor and home-builder. You learn everything you need to know and have every feasible working knowledge and expertise as to what it takes to build a home. Well, you still have to buy materials, and supplies, as well as continuing education resources to learn masonry, and carpentry, and plumbing.
Businesses take a risk with every new hire. They need to ensure a potential employee has high integrity, makes ethical decisions and can deploy skills essential to the job. Graduates of Crown’s online, business bachelor’s degree program (B.S.) are attractive to employers.

What if on top of that you had access to e-books, reports, video’s, software and tutorials to teach you everything you need to know about every type of Internet marketing and online prosperity that you could possibly need? What if you had products to promote and sell as your own? Then, what if you were taught how to create your own products for even more prosperity? Then, what if on top of all that you had a Christ-centered learning center to fully support your efforts? Even better, what if you’re cash poor and many of the marketing tactics you’re being taught didn’t cost you a penny?
