Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world’s largest religious broadcaster, provided an update November 5th on TBN founder and President Dr. Paul Crouch, who fell ill and was taken to a Dallas-area hospital October 22nd while at TBN’s Colleyville, Texas facility.
TBN attorney and spokesman Colby May said that doctors have removed a ventilator and Dr. Crouch is now breathing on his own. “Dr. Crouch has returned to California and is resting comfortably as doctors continue to address his heart and related health issues,” Mr. May explained.
Mr. May said that on November 3rd he spent time with Dr. Crouch, visiting and discussing network-related business, and was encouraged by Dr. Crouch’s level of engagement and interaction.
“It is evident that the passion for Christian television that has motivated Dr. Crouch over the past forty-plus years continues unabated,” said Mr. May. “We are encouraged by Dr. Crouch’s ongoing progress, although his condition remains serious.”
