Holy Land purchase by Trinity was complex deal

Monday October 22, 2007

Holy Land Experience‘s transfer to Trinity Broadcasting Network was a complex deal involving five nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations: Holy Land Ministries, Trinity and the Grace, Van Kampen and Sola Scriptura foundations.

TBN: The Blasphemy Network

Trintiy Broadcasting Network (TBN), led by founders Paul and Jan Crouch, is the world’s largest religious TV network. It claims to be a Christian ministry.
