“Elvis loved gospel music. He was raised on it. And he really did know what he was talking about. He was singing Gospel all the time – almost anything he did had that flavor. You can’t get away from what your roots are.”

“All of Heaven must have stood
when Jan Crouch walked through those gates.
Jan didn’t just live in history, she created it.
Her work, with her dear husband Paul, literally made
Christian television ubiquitous around the globe.
The network they created spread the name of Jesus Christ further,
faster than – perhaps – at any time in church history.
The list of those whose lives were changed
numbers at least in tens-of-millions, maybe hundreds-of-millions.
I join with the TBN and Crouch family
in mourning the loss of an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother,
and I celebrate the life of a courageous pioneer in Christian media.”
