Paul Crouch, Jr. has announced his resignation from the Trinity Broadcasting Network, the well-known Christian television ministry his parents Paul and Jan Crouch founded 38 years ago.
A ministry spokesman confirmed the news saying, "a memo was circulated ... at the network advising people that he is leaving."
It's unclear what Crouch plans to do after TBN. No specifics were given on his future plans.
Crouch, Jr. is the eldest Crouch son. He served as TBN's vice president and chief of staff. He also often hosted TBN's flagship program, "Praise the Lord."
Crouch, Sr. is expected to take over daily operations at TBN until a replacement is found.
Recently Crouch, Jr. pioneered iTBN, the network's new interactive effort to broadcast its programming online to reach a wider audience.
"All ministries must evolve," Crouch, Jr. said in August about the project. "The message of the gospel doesn't change, but the way we get it out, I think, does."
