Crys­tal Cathe­dral read­ies for re­lo­ca­tion, name change

The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

GAR­DEN GROVE | The Crys­tal Cathe­dral is get­ting a new name and the con­gre­ga­tion of the fi­nan­cially strug­gling Orange County megachurch will re­lo­cate, its se­nior pas­tor an­nounced Sun­day.

The min­istry will be re­named Hope Cen­ter of Christ, Sheila Schuller Cole­man said in a short video posted on the Crys­tal Cathe­dral web­site. An an­nounce­ment on a new lo­ca­tion will be made in the next few weeks, she said.

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

“We’re go­ing to need a new home sooner than we thought. And we’re mov­ing full-speed ahead,” the pas­tor said.

Her par­ents Robert and Arvella Schuller an­nounced Satur­day they were step­ping down from the Crys­tal Cathe­dral board of di­rec­tors, cit­ing a break­down in ne­go­ti­a­tions over fi­nan­cial claims against the church as part of the bank­ruptcy pro­ceed­ings.
