TBN to Air Good Friday Service for Christians Stranded by Coronavirus

Tens of millions of Christians will be unable to attend church this Easter weekend as public health officials have prohibited large gatherings such as church services to limit the spread of COVID-19. TBN, the world’s largest religious broadcaster, will present GOOD FRIDAY – WORLDWIDE with Chris Tomlin and Max Lucado on Friday April 10th at 8/7 p.m. central. The one-hour program will feature Tomlin leading worship, a sermon from beloved pastor and New York Times bestselling author Lucado with guest appearances by Pat Barrett, We the Kingdom and Matt Maher. This broadcast event will be simulcast on K-LOVE & Air1 Radio Networks reaching millions across the country, and available for streaming on TBN’s mobile and TV apps with audio livestreams available on K-LOVE.com and Air1.com as well.

“For us at TBN, Good Friday will not be cancelled, Easter will not be cancelled,” said TBN President and Chairman Matt Crouch. “Join our Global church family as we celebrate the most important date on our Christian Calendar. He has Risen!”

Chris Tomlin is one of the most heralded singer-songwriters in the world having amassed an impressive body of work including 12 albums, 16 #1 radio singles, a Grammy and an American Music Award, three Billboard Music Awards, 21 Dove Awards, and a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award. He has two platinum and five gold albums to his credit and over eight million albums sold, and is among the most recognized and influential artists in any genre of music known around the world.

“‘Good Friday Worldwide’ is happening, and I am so excited,” said Tomlin. “We are going to gather people around the world and while we can’t be together physically for the safety of our families and of the world, we can worship together in our homes.”

Lucado, who has been described as “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today and “The Best Preacher In America” by Readers Digest, is the Teaching Minister at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, TX, and also one of the most prolific and beloved Christian authors of all time, having sold more than 100 million books.

“We have a rare opportunity to come together this Good Friday as one church to celebrate the one true God,” said Lucado. “Join us as we proclaim the victory that no virus can touch–the redemption of our souls.”
