Trinity Broadcasting Network Statement on the Passing of TBN Founder Dr. Paul Crouch


LOS ANGELES (November 30, 2013) — Trinity Broadcasting Network issued the following statement on the passing of TBN founder and President Dr. Paul Crouch:

 

Today Dr. Paul Crouch, founder and president of the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), was called home to live in eternity with Christ. Dr. Crouch was 79 years old. His passing followed a decade-long fight with degenerative heart disease.

 

Paul’s first love, the call he received as a young man, why he and his wife Jan founded TBN in 1973, and his life’s work, was the Great Commission first given by Jesus to his disciples in the Gospel of Matthew 28:18-20:

 

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, [even] unto the end of the world.

 

Today heaven is a loud and joyous place where Paul has been greeted by the countless souls he lead, and helped so many others to lead, to Christ. He hated cant, insincerity, and giving less than one’s all. Paul never tried to be anyone else, but was just himself in all his rugged reality, frankness, and humor. He loved mankind, and longed to introduce everyone to the Best Friend he and humanity ever had, Christ Jesus. We mourn Paul’s passing and he will be greatly missed. But we know, as the old hymn reminds us, soon enough we will see him again in that great “meeting in the air.”

 

During Paul’s last days, TBN, Jan, and the Crouch family have been humbled and comforted by the innumerable words of prayer and expressions of support and love they received. As we noted when we first announced Paul had been taken to the hospital, God is truly manifest through love, and the love and kindness so many have expressed has been a great blessing.

 

Thank you, and may God bless each one of you.
