Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has told The Christian Post that Paul Crouch, Jr., its recently resigned chief of staff and broadcast host, will continue to appear on the network from "time to time."
This latest information from TBN will come as welcome news to the network's millions of viewers who have enjoyed the appearance of the popular host over many years.
It was announced earlier in Octoboer that the executive and host had decided on leaving the network to attend to other ministry pursuits.
Crouch, the eldest son of TBN founders Paul and Jan Crouch, has received numerous awards in the television broadcasting industry, including the prestigious Telly Award.
TBN national spokesman Colby May told CP Tuesday that Crouch has been "a very valued pillar in helping to grow TBN over the years." He also added, "He will continue to appear on TBN from time to time."
The news of Crouch’s resignation had come as a shock to many viewers of the network, especially, since he was intricately involved in the launching of TBN’s new online service, iTBN, last September.
An enthusiastic Crouch promoted the service as an exciting feature that would enable customers to gain increased access to all of their favorite TBN programs.
Still, May reaffirmed that Crouch had decided to depart the network "in order to pursue some of his own projects, and desires he has in terms of his own ministry."
