Gospel Artists Honor Jan Crouch In Her Passing
Matt and Laurie Crouch posted sad news of the passing of Jan Crouch, yesterday morning on TBN’s website.
“Laurie and I have just watched the transition of our precious Mother from this world to the next; watched her step into the presence of Jesus and into her heavenly reward. Jan Crouch, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone home. Those who battled for the Kingdom of God knew her as a fighter-someone who didn’t give up, someone who fought relentlessly to get the Gospel around the world. Viewers of the Trinity Broadcasting Network knew her as someone who partnered with Paul Crouch in the launch and expansion of TBN, and as someone who came into their homes for over 40 years. To thousands of orphans around the world, and those orphaned in spirit, she was Momma Jan, quick with a smile, a gift, and a word of encouragement. To a select few she was not a television figure, but was sister, wife, Mom, or Grandma- an integral part of a family. Jan Crouch loved many things, but most of all she loved Jesus, and now has seen Him face to face and has experienced His grace in fullness.
She has taken a piece of our hearts with her, but it’s so wonderful to know that Paul and Jan Crouch are together again, in the arms of Jesus.”
Janice Wendell Bethany Crouch was an American religious broadcaster who, with her late husband Paul, co-founded the Trinity Broadcasting Network. On May 27, 2016, TBN reported that she was hospitalized in Orlando, Florida after suffering a massive stroke. She passed away on May 31, 2016.
In addition to spreading the Gospel across the world, TBN has been supportive of gospel music. Gospel Artists took to social media yesterday to share their their condolences.
I join with the @mattandlauriecrouch Family, @TBN, and the world in celebrating the life and legacy of Jan Crouch. She is now in the presence of the Lord. Paul and Jan built a network that has carried the message of the gospel around the globe. To God be the Glory. Keep the family and the much needed ministry work in your prayers.
