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.
