Trinity Broadcasting Network Expanding Through European Broadcast Centers
LOS ANGELES (June 27, 2013) — Europe is a hot spot of exciting activity for Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest Christian broadcaster with 24 global networks touching every inhabited continent. The network recently added seven full-power stations in Spain, a major hub for TBN Europe, and is in the final stages of construction on a state-of-the-art studio in London, TBN's other European network center.
“It is exiting to see the progress on TBN's new London facility, which will vastly increase our ability to touch the world with the gospel,” said TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch. “As a corridor to the rest of the world, London is the center of a vast array of cultures and ethnicities. This new studio will give us the ability to greatly expand our outreach to these peoples, such as London's major Middle Eastern populations, and create dynamic programming for our Farsi-language Nejat affiliate, the Arabic-language Al-Horreya network, TBN Europe, and beyond.”
As for the expansion in Spain, TBN founder Dr. Paul Crouch recalled the completion fourteen years ago of TBN's Madrid studio, which since then has become the “play out” hub that feeds TBNs satellite signals across Europe and other parts of the world. “Now, with the addition of seven new stations in Spain,” explained Dr. Crouch “TBN is able to cover the entire nation — a potential of over forty million viewers.”
Dr. Crouch noted that 2,000 years ago Spain was a major focus of the apostle Paul's missionary thrusts — “and today, the same gospel message Paul preached is being sent out from this nation across Europe, into Africa, and the Middle East,” he said. “This is a definite answer to prayer.”
On Friday June 28, TBN's Matthew and Laurie Crouch will host the network's signature music and ministry show, Praise the Lord, from Milan, Italy — the nation where TBN's first European stations were launched nearly twenty-five years ago. “As we celebrate forty years of Christian television through TBN, it's a joy to look back and see how far God has brought this network,” said Matthew Crouch. “To be able to produce programming that changes lives and forges destinies, and to send it to literally every inhabited place on earth — is a blessing and miracle we take very seriously. May God continue to bless this vital kingdom work as we look to the future.”
TBN's Praise the Lord program broadcasts from Milan, Italy Friday, June 28, at 7 p.m. Pacific Time (9 p.m. Central, 10 p.m. Eastern). To find out more about the 24 members of the Trinity Broadcasting Family of Networks, visit us at www.tbn.org.
