Robert H. Schuller, the founding pastor of Crystal Cathedral in southern California, has announced that he has turned over the administrative duties of his ministry to his daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman.
The transition comes after Schuller’s son, Robert A. Schuller, resigned late last year as senior pastor. The son recently contracted to broadcast a show on AmericanLife TV, a cable network.
In October, the father said the two men differed over the “direction and the vision” of the megachurch and its Hour of Power television program. The senior Schuller was supported in the change by regional officials of the Reformed Church in America, with which the Garden Grove congregation is affiliated.
