Pat Robertson, Christian broadcaster, longtime television host and author, died last month at his Virginia Beach home at the age of 93. He was best known for his commentary and prayer as leader of The 700 Club television show. Robertson’s rise to fame was based on his vision from God to create the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), which he founded more than 60 years ago. In 1960, Robertson created CBN with $70 to his name and a company bank account with a $3 initial deposit.

These humble beginnings grew into an international ministry that reached millions of people worldwide. In 1966, Robertson began to host a daily talk show, The 700 Club. Still on air today, it’s one of the longest-running programs in history. In addition, Robertson authored 18 books and managed multiple nonprofit organizations.

Despite losing his wife, Dede, in 2022 and his declining health, Robertson’s faith never wavered. Robertson leaves behind his four children, 14 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and thousands of faithful fans worldwide.

2 Timothy 4:7 says, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
