Paul Crouch Named Most Influential
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TBN Founder—Paul Crouch—Named One of the ‘50 Most Influential Christians
January 26 (Los Angeles) ----- Dr. Paul Crouch Sr., Founder and President of the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), is one of the ‘50 Most Influential Christians in America.’ That’s the verdict of the most recent edition of The Church Report magazine.
Listing him as “ninth” on their list of 50, The Church Report describes Paul Crouch as “an internationally recognized visionary in the field of Christian television.” The magazine also declares that under Crouch’s leadership, “TBN has grown to become the largest group owner of broadcast stations in the world.”
The people on this list of most influential Christians in America represent a ‘Who’s Who’ of important Christian leaders from all walks of life. The list of 50 includes pastors, authors, politicians, radio show hosts, publishers, and televangelists. In addition to Crouch, others on the list include President George W. Bush (#1), Actor and Director Mel
Gibson (#2), and Evangelist Billy Graham (#3).
“Dad was thrilled with this honor,” declares Paul Crouch Jr., son of Paul Crouch, Sr. and TBN’s Vice President of Administration. “When God calls you into a ministry such as broadcasting, many times you never realize the impact it has on people’s lives. It’s nice that others recognize his efforts, but simply know that we are taking the Great Commission of Jesus literally and ‘Going into all the world.’ We thank everyone involved in his selection and want to emphasize that all the hard work was designed to simply please the Lord, not man.”
Paul Crouch Sr. started TBN with his wife Jan in 1973 with a dream and a vision to build a Christian television network that spanned the whole world. The dream became a reality as TBN is now the world’s largest Christian television network. Across America and around the world, TBN is carried by TV stations and cable systems to millions of homes. For 31 years, under the guidance of Paul Crouch, TBN has been beaming wholesome family and faith-based programming to the USA and the World! With over
12,000 TV stations and cable affiliates fed by 46 satellites TBN has a global presence that literally allows it to say, “Hello world!”
“Paul Crouch’s place on the list of the most influential Christians in America is well deserved,” states Susan Zahn, Media Director for WDC Media and a publicist for TBN. “For over three decades Paul Crouch has been used by God to touch the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When you consider the millions of people around the world who see and benefit from TBN programs on a daily basis, it’s not difficult to see how Paul Crouch would be high on the list.”
