LOS ANGELES, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) will air a special video tribute to its co-founder Jan Crouch Sunday, June 12th. Mrs. Crouch, who died May 31st at the age of 78, and her husband, the late Paul F. Crouch, founded TBN on May 28, 1973 with one station broadcasting a weak signal throughout Southern California. Since then TBN has grown to become the largest religious broadcaster in the world, with thirty global networks reaching more than one billion potential viewers on every inhabited continent with a broad range of faith-and-family programming.
TBN Chairman Matthew Crouch said that while his parents were known and loved by millions of people across the earth, their preference was not to have large public memorial services. "They didn't like the idea of people dropping everything, changing their plans, and flying across the country or the world," he explained. "Paul and Jan were best known as people who communicated 'over the air.' My dad would often say, 'TBN belongs to God's people,' and so the most suitable memorial seemed to be a 'Video Tribute.'"
Mr. Crouch recalled that when his father passed away in 2013, his mother oversaw the production of a beautiful video tribute honoring his life and ministry. "She wanted us to do the same for her," he said, "so this Sunday we will honor my mom with a special program looking back over her life, her ministry, and the incredible impact she had on so many people around the world."
Thank you for joining Matthew and Laurie Crouch, along with the entire TBN family, for Tribute to Jan Crouch: A Life Well Lived, airing Sunday, June 12th, at 7 p.m. Pacific (9 p.m. Central, 10 p.m. Eastern) on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
