Jan Crouch, co-founder of the world’s largest Christian television network, Jan Crouch, has died at the age of 78.
On Saturday, the Trinity Broadcasting Network announced that Crouch had suffered a stroke in the Orlando area. The statement said she was resting comfortably, but the diagnosis wasn’t good.
Early Tuesday, TBN said on Twitter: “Jan Crouch, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone home.”
Her husband, Paul, died in 2013.
Read official statement from Matt and Laurie Crouch below:
“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, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone home.
“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.
“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.
“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.“
