Paul F. Crouch, a beloved Partner in ministry to KCM, left this world and took up his new residence in heaven on Saturday, November 30, 2013.
Paul and Jan Crouch answered the call of God to share the gospel with the world and co-founded Trinity Broadcasting Network in 1973. Today, TBN reaches into every corner of the world with the message of God’s love in the person of Jesus Christ. KCM’s Believer’s Voice of Victory broadcast has been part of TBN’s schedule for 32 years.
Kenneth and Gloria Copeland have hosted TBN’s premier broadcast “Praise the Lord” many times over the years and count their relationship with Paul and Jan Crouch, and the entire TBN family, to be a connection of faith and love.
Brother Copeland has described Paul Crouch as a “television apostle” because his ministry and the ministry of TBN have helped Christians and churches around the world grow and minister to the people of the nations.
Brother Copeland has told the story of Paul Crouch’s description of the plan for TBN’s development in the early days. “Paul said, ‘I’ll tell you what, if I do nothing on that channel—if I run out of programming, and I don’t have anything but a sign that says, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and John 3:16 put on it—I’ll show it 24 hours a day before I’ll put something from the world on it. Hallelujah.’”
TBN has indeed fulfilled that goal and Paul Crouch’s legacy of Christian television pioneering goes on, now airing evangelical television programs that proclaim the Lordship of Jesus and the love of God 24 hours, every day!
All of us at KCM pray for the Crouch family and the broader TBN family as we celebrate the world-changing life and the glorious homegoing of Paul Crouch.
In loving memory of Paul Crouch, today we declare John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” And, as always, we declare in Paul’s honor, “Jesus Is Lord!”
