Our Mission


"For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 3:11

Driven with a passion to see the vulnerable subsistence farmers of Malawi attaining food security and quality of life, the van der Ham family settled in Chigumula Blantyre on 12 August 2009 to establish a training center. Since then the Lord Jesus has enabled us to build a wonderful team of trainers. Hundreds of students from multiple countries have attended our day, week, and 6 week courses and heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. Many experienced personal transformation and an increase in food security and financial stability. Two more training centers were established in Malawi. One in Mzuzu in the north and one in Zomba in the south.

The Crown Training Centers delivers Good News! Classes cover the Gospel, character development, personality assessments, conservation agriculture, agri- business and more. Lives have been eternally changed and families, churches, and communities are being impacted.
