Paul Crouch and Jim Bakker founded TBN in 1973. Earlier this year the network celebrated its 40th anniversary. TBN would become the world’s largest religious network.
Paul left behind wife Janice Bethany Crouch and sons Paul Crouch Jr and Matthew Crouch (not biological). Paul’s granddaughters Brittany Crouch Koper and Carra Crouch are involved in litigation with the network.
Before working in television, Paul worked at the Assemblies of God film library which rented 16mmChristian films to churches. In 1990 TBN would get involved in feature film production starting with the movie China Cry.
