Despite recent disagreements between its Board of Directors and the family of ministry founder Rev. Robert H. Schuller, worship services will continue every Sunday at Crystal Cathedral, the church clarified Wednesday.
Crystal Cathedral Senior Pastor Sheila Schuller Coleman said March 10 that she will be resigning from the ministry to start a new church, Hope Center of Christ.
Also Saturday, founder Robert H. Schuller and his wife, Arvella, announced they were stepping down from the church board.
The couple’s daughter, Carol Schuller Milner, explained that her parents have been embroiled in a legal conflict with the board over copyright infringement and back payment for services.
With that shake up, and ongoing financial problems, some wondered about the ministry’s future.
But the board assured this past Sunday that services would continue at the iconic glass-walled sanctuary each week.
“We invite everyone to join us next Sunday for worship in the Crystal Cathedral,” John Charles, chairman of the Crystal Cathedral Ministries’ Board of Directors, said in a statement March 13.
He added that the ministry has received “encouragement from numerous members of the congregation” about the decision to “return to the traditional worship style on which the ministry was founded.”
