There is exciting news in christian television! Matthew W. Crouch has been named chairman of the board of the Trinity Broadcasting Family of Networks (TBN), the world’s largest Christian television network. TBN’s board of directors unanimously elected Mr. Crouch to the position during meetings Sept. 4.
Following several years at the helm of Gener8Xion Entertainment, a faith-and-family movie studio based in Hollywood, Mr. Crouch returned in 2007 as a board member to the network launched in 1973 by his parents, Dr. Paul and Jan Crouch. In 2010 he assumed the position of TBN’s vice president and worked closely with his father until Dr. Crouch’s passing in November 2013.
“As TBN steps forward with new leadership, the board of directors and our many ministry partners are confident that Matthew is the right person at this time to lead the network into an exciting future,” said Colby May, TBN board member and communications counsel. “Matthew has years of broadcast industry experience and a proven ability to create clarity and unity among a diverse group of Christian voices. We believe that his vision, together with innovative programming for a worldwide audience, will cultivate the next generation of TBN viewers.”
Mr. Crouch said that he is honored to assume leadership of TBN’s growing global network family.
“I will never forget the day my father challenged me, before a worldwide audience, to run with the vision TBN was founded on over 40 years ago,” he said. “As I step into this new role, I am full of excitement for the future of this global network. With TBN we have the opportunity to reach the entire world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
