Jan Crouch Dies 78; Trinity Broadcasting Network Co-Founder’s Cause Of Death Is Stroke


Trinity Broadcasting Network co-founder Jan
Crouch, who had been in the hospital after
suffering a massive stroke last week, has died
at the age of 78, the family announced early

“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’s son Mat and other family members announced early Tuesday. “Jan Crouch, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone

The family added, “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… 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.”

Last week, TBN announced on its website, “Our
sister and TBN co-founder Jan Crouch was
taken to the hospital on Wednesday evening,
May 25th, after suffering a stroke in the
Orlando, Florida area. She is resting comfortably
as her physicians and family care for her.”

On Monday, the family wrote on Facebook,
“The outpouring of love and affection for Mom
(and our family) has been a warm security
blanket in which we wrap ourselves up in this
room and rest in as momma moves quietly
towards eternity.

“Besides being under the care of an incredible
medical team, Mom remains under the watchful
eye of her caring family and our loving
Heavenly Father, one preparing to let go and
say to her ‘see you soon’ and the other ready
to say ‘welcome home, my sweet child.'”

Crouch was 78 at the time of her death. “She
continues to place her trust in God, and draws
strength from the promise of 2 Corinthians
1:3-4, the family said Monday, quoting the
verse: “Blessed be the God and Father of our
Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our
tribulation, that we may be able to comfort
those who are in any trouble, with the comfort

She founded TBN with her late husband Paul
Crouch in 1973. Later, the network went on to
become the world’s largest Christian-owned
cable station.

Her husband, who was the son of Assemblies
of God missionaries, was found dead at the age
79 in November 2013. Crouch Sr. had been
treated for chronic heart problems for over a
decade and had received a pacemaker in 2012.

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.

“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,”
the family said Tuesday. “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.”
