The Founder Of Family TV's Parent Company TBN, Paul Crouch Dies At 79

@Kaphrayra

Co-founder and owner of TBN, the largest Christian Broadcasting Corporation in the world; Paul Franklin Crouch died last Saturday after a long battle with heart illness at the age of 79.

Paul, who had heart and other ailments, was hospitalized in October when he became ill during a visit to a TBN station in Colleyville, Texas. 

n early November, the network announced that he had improved enough to return to California. His family did not immediately disclose where he died or the cause of death.

TBN is the parent network that owns Family TV which broadcasts here in Kenya and is a favourite of many of the Christian faith.

A short background on his work on TBN by the WashingtonPost goes as follows;

TBN was not the first Christian network — televangelist Pat Robertson had launched the Christian Broadcast Network a decade earlier — but TBN surpassed its rivals in scope and ambition, amassing a global audience of millions.

The son of a poor missionary, Mr. Crouch was known for preaching a gospel of prosperity. His twice-yearly Praise-a-Thons on TBN generated as much as $90 million a year in donations, mostly in small amounts from lower-income Americans.

“When you give to God,” Mr. Crouch said in a typical appeal, “you’re simply loaning to the Lord and he gives it right on back.”

Mr. Crouch channeled much of the revenue into charity, funding soup kitchens, homeless shelters and an international humanitarian organization, Smile of a Child, founded by his wife, Jan. In 2011, he donated more than 150 low-power TV stations to the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council, which helps minorities, women and others own and operate TV and radio stations.

Mr. Crouch’s main mission was to build an alternative to secular media. TBN, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, is a 24-hour family of networks. Offerings have included biblical cartoons and soap operas, game shows, programs on fitness and faith healing, religious movies and late-night Christian rock videos. Prominent independent ministers such as Robertson, Jimmy Swaggart and Robert Schuller bought airtime on TBN, which also broadcast Billy Graham’s crusades.

The center of Trinity’s lineup has long been the nightly talk show “Praise the Lord.” Hosted by the silver-haired Mr. Crouch and his flamboyantly coiffed wife, it emanates from an Orange County, Calif., studio decorated with stained-glass windows, gilded imitation antiques and plush pews for the audience.

May he rest in peace.
