Sad News: TBN Founder Paul Crouch Dies at Age 79

paulcrouchPaul Franklin Crouch, co-founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network, is dead at age 79. TBN’s official Facebook page released the following announcement about Crouch’s death:

“Dr Paul F Crouch passed into the presence of the Lord on November 30, 2013. We are grateful for the life of this amazing servant of God. Please pray for the Crouch family during this time. #paulcrouch #tbn”

Crouch had been treated for chronic heart problems for over a decade and had received a pacemaker in 2012. He was hospitalized on Oct. 22 in Dallas, Texas, and returned home to California in early November. On Nov. 5, TBN released a statement by TBN attorney and spokesman Colby May that said doctors had taken Crouch off the ventilator and he was breathing on his own.

Two years earlier in September 2011, Crouch was also hospitalized for congestive heart failure. It was during this time that Crouch allegedly wrote a letter identifying that he wanted his son Matthew Crouch to take over the position of president of TBN. Then Paul Crouch Jr., who was presumed the heir of TBN, suddenly announced in October 2011 that he would leave TBN to pursue other ministry opportunities.
