TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch Offers Statement on Passing of Dr. Robert H. Schuller

LOS ANGELES (April 3, 2015) — Matthew Crouch, Vice President of the Trinity Broadcasting Network, offered the following statement on the passing of Dr. Robert H. Schuller, recalling Dr. Schuller's longtime partnership with TBN:

 

“Back in 1973, when TBN was a small, struggling TV station in Southern California, Dr. Robert Schuller became TBN's first paid ministry partner with his program Hour of Power. That step of faith by Dr. Schuller, who was already a nationally recognized Christian leader, was a major blessing for my parents, TBN founders Paul and Jan Crouch, because it carried with it an implicit endorsement of this fledgling network God had called them to found. It was as if Dr. Schuller was telling the world: 'I trust TBN and this new vision for Christian television, and I'm going to partner in that vision for the long haul.' Over forty years later Hour of Power, now hosted by Dr. Schuller's grandson Bobby Schuller, is still on the air on TBN — in the very same time slot Dr. Schuller started with those many years ago.

 

“We are deeply grateful for the warm friendship and support that Dr. Schuller extended to our family and to TBN throughout the years. Our prayers go out to his family as we join in grieving his passing. We rest in the assurance that today Dr. Schuller is standing in heaven's splendor worshiping in the presence of His Savior and Lord.”
