TBN Vice President Matthew Crouch said that with the new 60,000-square-foot studio located in the western suburb of Aurora, Chicago joins Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, Orlando, Florida, and New York City — along with London and Jerusalem — as a major production venue for TBN programming worldwide, including the network's popular Praise the Lord music and talk show.

"Each night TBN's Praise the Lord features compelling guests, great music, and a live audience from one of our international TBN studios," said Mr. Crouch. "And these same facilities — now including our Chicago studio — produce much of the quality entertaining and inspirational programming enjoyed by millions of TBN viewers around the world."

That includes popular national programs from two Chicago area Christian leaders: James MacDonald, pastor of Chicago's multi-campus Harvest Bible Chapel; and Gregory Dickow, who pastors Chicago's Life Changers International Church.

"TBN and WWTO have been an important part of Chicago's Christian community for decades," said Pastor Dickow. "We're thrilled to join in celebrating this beautiful new facility, and look forward to partnering with TBN in reaching out to Chicago and the world with life-changing programming."

In addition to Gregory Dickow, James MacDonald, and other Chicago area Christian and community leaders, TBN's Matthew Crouch and wife Laurie will be on hand September 11th to greet guests and to host the first Praise the Lord show from the new facility. Among the special guests will be the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

"We're looking forward to this special evening kicking off TBN's new presence and commitment to the city of Chicago," said Mr. Crouch. "We invite everyone from the area to join us in this special celebration."
