Please Consider Helping MinistryWatch.com
As the year draws to a close, would you prayerfully consider supporting the work of MinistryWatch.com? Over our 15 years of existence, we have been able to mostly fund our operating expenses without asking for outside help. Indeed, we prefer the thousands of users of our website give to the many deserving ministries found on MinistryWatch.com than to us. Our current circumstances, however, are such that we will need some outside funding in 2014 and we are hoping to raise at least $100,000. If you feel led to help with this need, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

MinistryWatch.com has often been critical of Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and its founders Paul and Jane Crouch due to their propagation of the harmful message of the Prosperity Gospel and their mistreatment of donors via the financial mismanagement of their ministry. With the announcement of Paul Crouch's passing on Sunday, however, we want to respectfully pause from that criticism and ask MinistryWatch.com users to join us in prayer for his family during their time of grief and for the ministry of TBN during this time of transition. Even with its shortcomings, the Lord has used TBN to bless many throughout the world. Hopefully, as the ministry takes on new leadership in the months ahead, those blessings can be multiplied while the shortcomings associated with TBN can be eliminated. Like every one of us, Paul Crouch made many mistakes during his life, but he also built a very substantial Christian television network which may yet become a huge positive force for good in God's kingdom. If so, Paul Crouch's tarnished legacy may be redeemed and we would rejoice to see the Lord accomplish this.
