OC’s Crystal Cathedral Congregation To Relocate

GARDEN GROVE (AP) — The Crystal Cathedral’s pastor says her congregation will relocate and the Orange County megachurch will get a new name.

Senior Pastor Sheila Schuller Coleman said Sunday that the ministry will be renamed Hope Center Of Christ.

In a video posted on the Crystal Cathedral web site, Schuller Coleman said an announcement regarding the new location will be made in the next few weeks.

The financially-struggling church sold its iconic glass-paned home to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange last month to emerge from federal bankruptcy protection.

Its founder, Dr. Robert Schuller retired in 2006 after seeing a weekly prayer service at an Orange County drive-in movie theater evolve into a global televangelist empire.

On Saturday Robert Schuller announced he was stepping down from the Crystal Cathedral board of directors.

    …I entered the contest for re-naming the cathedral….

    I think…… “Redemption Cathedral of Christ”… was a much better choice than…. “Hope of Christ Church”…..

    ..by using the “Redemption” name, the larger Church Organization gets to point to the “redeeming qualities” of their religion,….it allows for a new perspective in washing out the previous management…..

    …and most importantly,..would allow for the “redemption”of the Catholic Church..
    …relative to all the sexual misconduct that members of the clergy have been involved with for a couple thousand years…?

    eh..?

    Starting last Sunday the Crystal Cathedral has returned to a traditional worship service. —-From pens-opinion.org “Local TV News Channels…report that the CC is moving to a new location and changing its name, implying ther present campus is being vacated. NOT TRUE! Sheila (Schuller Coleman) is moving and is starting a new church with a new name.”
