Passing of TBN Founder Dr. Paul Crouch

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Trinity Broadcasting Network issued the following statement on the passing of TBN founder and President Dr. Paul Crouch:

Dr.
Paul Crouch, founder and President of the Trinity Broadcasting Network
(TBN), the world’s largest Christian television network, died November
30th at the age 79. His passing followed a decade-long battle with
degenerative heart disease.

Dr. Crouch’s passion throughout life
was to spread the gospel, a passion that in 1973 led him and his wife
Jan to found TBN with one small low-power station in Southern
California. Under Dr. Crouch’s leadership of over forty years, TBN has
grown into 26 distinct global networks and affiliates, reaching every
inhabited continent with life-changing Christian programming.

During
that time Dr. Crouch also empowered scores of ministries to expand
their reach and influence through television, and through those
partnerships Dr. Crouch and TBN took an active role in helping to lead
tens of millions of individuals to faith in Christ. Throughout his life
Dr. Crouch pointed to that eternal harvest as his most important
legacy.

While acknowledged throughout the broadcast industry as
the foremost leader in Christian television, Dr. Crouch maintained a
characteristic modesty concerning his role, preferring to emphasize the
countless friends and partners who stepped alongside him and Mrs.
Crouch to make TBN a successful outreach. Above all, in reflecting on
his crucial role in TBN’s continued impact, Dr. Crouch inevitably
pointed to the importance of an undying faith in God, which he
characterized as “walking to the edge of all the light you have … and
taking one more step.”

While we mourn Dr. Crouch’s passing, we
are comforted with the knowledge that his influence and legacy will be
felt for many decades to come as the Trinity Broadcasting Network
continues to broadcast the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the
world.
