During its 72 years as a Southern California institution, the Hollywood Bowl Easter Sunrise Service has overcome rainstorms, protest demonstrations and financial problems. But it now faces a struggle that supporters fear it may not survive. City officials have ordered the service to stop soliciting money. Once-generous donors have threatened it with lawsuits.

A church watchdog group recommended Tuesday that Jan and Paul Crouch step aside as leaders of Orange County-based Trinity Broadcasting Network while a panel of Christian leaders investigates its finances. An executive for TBN, the world's largest Christian network, rejected the idea but said he would meet with critics and review audited financial statements and other related documents with them. "We will turn over to them whatever we need to turn over," said Paul Crouch Jr., a network executive.

The programs are beamed around the clock from a nondescript studio complex in an Orange County industrial park. Distributed in the United States through a network larger than that controlled by any other Christian evangelist, the signals go overseas, too, carrying a stern anti-communist message to Central America and encouragement for the government of South Africa.

When Paul and Jan Crouch started Trinity Broadcasting in Santa Ana in 1973, they had no idea that the then-tiny Christian network would someday stretch nationwide. But in the intervening 15 years it has done that and more. Today it is an international network, with stations in South Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and Central America. "About two years ago we bought Johnny Carson's station in Albuquerque, Channel 23," Paul Crouch said.

As the sun was setting one day last spring in the San Joaquin Valley, the Rev. Paul F. Crouch, founder and president of the Tustin-based Trinity Broadcasting Network, began to preach his gospel of globalism. Crouch told the congregation in a sweltering sanctuary in rural Selma about TBN's plans to build a television station in Finland to broadcast into the Soviet Union.

The spectacular growth of Tustin-based Trinity Broadcasting Network has been aided in part by liberal interpretation of a federal policy designed to promote minority broadcast ownership, a review of federal documents shows. For years, under Federal Communications Commission rules aimed at restraining the power of the major commercial networks, only seven full-power commercial television stations could be owned by a single individual, group or company.

Pastor Paul Crouch calls it "God's economy of giving," and here is how it works: People who donate to Crouch's Trinity Broadcasting Network will reap financial blessings from a grateful God. The more they give TBN, the more he will give them. Being broke or in debt is no excuse not to write a check. In fact, it's an ideal opportunity. For God is especially generous to those who give when they can least afford it.
