Trinity Broadcasting Network Honors Dads on Fatherís Day
LOS ANGELES (June 14, 2012) — Father’s Day is Sunday, June 17, and Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world’s largest religious broadcaster and America’s favorite faith and family channel, has set aside the weekend to honor and encourage those men who lead and provide for their families, and who help to mold the destinies of future generations.
“As a father I know personally the opportunities and challenges of the assignment,” said TBN founder and President, Dr. Paul Crouch. But I also know God will equip us to fulfill the expectations of this crucial role. TBN is committed to helping dads everywhere.”
TBN’s Father’s Day weekend lineup include some great movies and specials that will entertain, inspire, and challenge dads of all ages:

Matt Crouch, TBN’s Vice President for Administration and son of the network’s founder, noted that fathers today are under attack as never before from a culture at war against the family. “Our prayers go out for dads this weekend, that God will empower them to represent His heart of love and mercy to their families and communities.”
