STATEMENT BY RALPH REED, FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN OF THE FAITH & FREEDOM COALITION, ON PAT ROBERTSON’S LEGACY
“Pat Robertson was one of the past century’s most influential figures in American religion, culture and politics. As a giant of the faith, founder of a global broadcasting ministry, pioneer of the cable television industry, humanitarian, educator, founder of Regent University, presidential candidate, and founder of the Christian Coalition, he was a true man of God who led millions to Christ. His heart for ther Lord gave rpurpose to his life and animated everything his hand touched. Pat’s remarkable life is a reminder that a single person wholly surrendered to Jesus Christ can make a huge difference. Pat leaves a legacy in his family, his ministry, Regent University, and the millions he touched that will continue for decades. I was blessed and honored to count him as a friend.”

Don Moen Remembers Pat Robertson
“I was saddened to hear this morning that my longtime friend Pat Robertson had died. What an honor it was to know Pat, call him my friend, and partner with him on multiple projects over the years.
Two of my most popular albums, I Will Sing and Thank You Lord were recorded at CBN Studios, and I was privileged to lead worship at Pat’s 80th and 85th birthdays.
What a homecoming it must have been for Pat, hearing the words from his Savior, “Well done good and faithful servant!” Now reunited with his wife Dede, he is joined in heaven with countless others who accepted Christ as their Savior because of Pat’s obedience to God’s call.
We celebrate his life and legacy, and pray for the continued work of CBN and Operation Blessing throughout the world.
Please join me as we lift the Robertson family up in prayer during this time.”
