LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Trinity Broadcasting Network, America’s most-watched faith channel, welcomes the Rev. Franklin Graham, who will co-host TBN’s signature ministry program Praise the Lord May 9 with TBN co-founder Jan Crouch. This special edition of Praise the Lord will be broadcast from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s picturesque retreat and training center, The Cove, located in Asheville, North Carolina.

Franklin Graham, son of beloved American evangelist Dr. Billy Graham, serves as president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) as well as Samaritan’s Purse, one of the most visible expressions of Christian compassion at work in the world today.

Like his father, Franklin has a passion for reaching the world with the good news of the gospel. Since 1989 he has preached in more than 150 evangelistic festivals in 37 states and nearly 40 countries, and has overseen countless humanitarian outreach projects in the most desperately needy parts of the world.

Joining Franklin Graham and Jan Crouch for this special TBN Praise the Lord broadcast will be Bill Conard, vice president of My Hope With Billy Graham, a massive BGEA nationwide outreach slated for November 2013; John Cass, BGEA’s Director of Evangelism; Ken Barun, BGEA’s Senior Vice President for Donor Ministries; Luther Harrison, Vice President of North American Ministries for Samaritan’s Purse; and Ken Isaacs, Vice President of Programs and Government Relations for Samaritan’s Purse.

Also appearing on the program will be the Tommy Coomes Band, featured musicians for many Billy Graham Evangelistic Association events.

“As always, we are excited to have Franklin Graham joining us on Praise the Lord,” said Jan Crouch. “TBN has had the honor to partner with Franklin and Samaritan’s Purse on many humanitarian outreach projects both in the U.S. and around the world, and his father Dr. Billy Graham has been a friend of this ministry for many, many years. Our viewers won’t want to miss this very special edition of TBN’s Praise the Lord program.”

TBN’s Praise the Lord, with Jan Crouch and special co-host Franklin Graham, will air May 9 at 7:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) on TBN. You can also view this and other exclusive TBN programs On Demand at iTBN.org.
