“I am overwhelmed at the opportunity to join Carman’s team. His ministry has impacted my life since I was a young teenager. I went to many of his concerts through the years, so it is surreal to be working with him. His music crosses all boundaries and genres. This year is going to be incredible,” stated Matt Felts. Matt will continue to travel as a soloist when not on the road as part of Carman’s team.

Felts is widely known as one of Christian Music’s top business minds, having worked with artists such as the Oak Ridge Boys, Booth Brothers, Larry Gatlin, Ivan Parker, Three Bridges, Williamsons and many others.

“Carman asked me who I thought was best for this position on His team. I said only one person – if he is available – and that’s Matt Felts. I contacted Matt and offered him the position. Matt said yes! Matt is one of the most multi-talented people I know. Carman and I are excited about having Matt part of Carman’s team,” stated Ron Blackwood, Carman’s booking agent.

Please Pray For Carman

Please Pray For Carman


The senior Doctor at UAMS Arkansas told me that if January tests are the same since I started in 2014 then he would declare me cured. They tested 3 million cells. Since 2014 I’ve tested at .001 for questionable cancer cells. This time the test went from .001 up to .05. So it moved up in the wrong direction. I’m still technically cancer free but I’m going back to my original Doctor, .Dr. Bart Barlogie who moved to Mt. Sinai Hospital in NYC. Dr. Barlogie founded the center in Arkansas and believes Multiple Myeloma is curable. He wants “zero” cancer cells. So folks, it’s still an ongoing fight. In the beginning they told me I had 3-5 years of life in 2013. My hopes were very high to be listed as medically cured on paper.
Monday my wife Dana and I fly to NYC to begin a grueling week of tests ending with my first visit to perform at Dollywod on the 22nd. No matter what the tests or the doctors say I will continue to win souls and encourage people’s faith in Jesus. We never know how much time we have left and I certainly don’t want to waste any of my days just singing songs when I can also populate the kingdom of heaven with more friends for eternity. I’m asking for your prayers for courage and that God infuses me, once again, with that steely determination so needed, to fight this dreaded pestilence of cancer. I know I’m at the 5 year limit of my allotted time but I’m fighting for more years to get more souls into the kingdom of God. I just want the Lord to say, when I stroll through the gates, “Well, well, well…. look who made it. Well done my good and faithful servant. Your Dad and brother Mario are waiting for you. They’re cracking jokes over in the Italian section, go say hi”

Carman About Jan Crouch

Carman About Jan Crouch

Carman About Jan Crouch

From Carman: (via facebook)
JAN CROUCH PASSED AWAY TODAY: My heart broke today in 1,000 pieces. My great friend and big sister in the lord of 40 years, is gone.  From the time in 1976 that I played with her colored pencils outside her office and flirted with her secretary (she never let me forget that) to the time 4 weeks ago that we had dinner alone and shared our new secrets, Jan was always my biggest encourager.  For 4 decades Jan would beseech Paul for budgets for my next ministry project. And we always did something great. The thing that bonded Paul, Jan and I was a shared passion for souls. We did music videos, movies, Hosted evening praise, tv shows, helped me promote my first stadium concert and did several TBN live concerts like Halloween 3:16 which lead over 70,000 people to Christ in one night and did 7 times the normal tv ratings. Still a record at TBN. Today while the memories are fresh and tender, I’m asking you to share your favorite TBN memory. For me, the woman I called “Momma Jan”, I will sorely miss all the great jokes, the council, comfort and best friend you could have in troubled times. Maybe your memory includes me or maybe not. But we all have a ministry memory to share from TBN. I want to collect all your memories in a post of remembrances. To remind us all that a great work was done and a great woman was at the center of it all. Everybody has something to share, something you heard or saw that touched your heart for Jesus. God bless you for taking this time out of your day. Without Jan, my life will never be the same. Thank You – Carman

A message from Carman:

SO GLAD TO SEE YOUR FACE: Two hours sleep, no food since Sunday and 10 needles later I can say, Yes the rumor is true. I was taken to the ER on the last day of tour in Belton TX. It’s been a very stressful tour with lots of technical difficulties and frustrations. Not to mention an 18 city string of one nighters. Put it all together and its doesn’t turn out well for Uncle Carm. I try really hard to make things great for my supporters and fans. Everyone continues to give so generously to our that I really really want the show to be better each time I walk out and the most anointed visual spectacle you’ve ever seen. Ok, Ok, I know I overdid it. I’ve been having bad chest pains for the past 2 weeks. Finally the last couple days it got really severe and the guy who picked me up at the hotel was a medic and wanted to go straight to the hospital. I wanted to do the last show. People have bought tickets and waited in line. No way was I going to not show up. So when the concert was over I walked off the stage into a car zooming straight for the ER. So far the doctors are saying it’s all stress related but I’m just starting the tests now. I’ve only gotten 2 hours of sleep and no food since Sunday so Im dying to get a meatball sandwich. Please keep me in your prayers. Yes, we are adjusting the tech issues and dialing down the number of dates in a row. But it’s good to be alive, cancer free and have all these places to minister. I’ll keep you informed as I know more. I’m sure you all have some good advice comments so I guess I’m just gonna have to sit here and read them all : ))
