Waking Up To Opportunity

May 5, 2023 | 3

For millions across America and around the world, the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) is synonymous with Christian television. It began on May 28, 1973 with one small part-time local TV channel, and over the past fifty years has grown into the largest faith-and-family broadcaster, and the most watched and requested Christian television network on earth. But how did it happen? What prompted TBN founders Paul and Jan Crouch to leave their secure and comfortable life and livelihood, and step into the unknown to pioneer Christian television? What challenges and obstacles did they face as they sought to establish Christian stations across America and the earth to share the good news of God’s love to individuals and families everywhere? In the four-part 50th Anniversary Docuseries, hosts Matt and Laurie Crouch guide viewers on the fifty-year adventure of TBN, using vintage video moments from TBN’s fifty-year history, interviews with key participants, and their own first-hand memories, to tell the exciting story of TBN — past, present, and future.
