Watch the Hour of Power online and on television (Saturday at 6PM PST on TBN, Sunday at 8AM EST/PST on Lifetime)
Who is currently leading the ministry? In 2012, Pastor Bobby Schuller accepted the position of Hour of Power Pastor. In 2011, John Charles accepted the position of the ministries' President and CEO.
Now that the Roman Catholic Diocese owns the grounds, how does that affect the church and the Hour of Power? When it became clear that selling the property would be best for the future of the ministry, the board and Dr. Schuller decided to sell to the Catholic Diocese in 2011 so the buildings and grounds would always remain places of worship, as they were intended. The Crystal Cathedral congregation moves in mid-2013 to a campus nearby. The "Hour of Power" continues to be broadcast nationally and internationally, reaching millions of homes and hearts worldwide.
When will Crystal Cathedral Ministries move to their new location? A move in mid-2013, in effect, will be a swap of facilities with the St. Callistus' congregation and the diocese's administrative offices. About one mile apart on Lewis Street in Garden Grove, the Crystal Cathedral congregation will be renamed when the move is made. Rent payments of $25,000 per month will be due beginning January 2014 and escalate at a predetermined rate every two years thereafter. The length of the lease has not been determined. The new, beautiful, sunlit sanctuary seats approx. 1,200.
Are there updates regarding the court case involving Crystal Cathedral Ministries, Dr. and Mrs. Schuller, and Tim and Carol Milner? The case was resolved on Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, with Dr. Robert H. Schuller receiving $615,624.68; Tim Milner, $77,000; Carol Milner, $10,615. "The ruling enables the ministry to arise out of bankruptcy after paying the final creditors," says John Charles, Crystal Cathedral Ministries' President and CEO. "We love the Schullers, and wish them well. With this important resolution, our congregation is ready to move forward to embrace a new and positive tomorrow, spreading the message of hope and healing to the people of Orange County and the world through the Hour of Power."
Why do we no longer see Dr. Schuller in the pulpit? Now retired from the ministry, Dr. Schuller continues to communicate in various media and venues, carrying on his life-changing ministry to the world, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
What is Robert A. Schuller doing now? Supportive of the ministry's decision to choose his son Robert V. Schuller as the new Hour of Power Pastor, Robert A. Schuller continues to work with his talented son-in-law Chris Wyatt on new endeavors in positive, family media.
Where is Sheila Schuller Coleman? Sheila and Jim Penner, along with Pastor Harold Shaw, moved their ministry, Hope Center OC (of Christ), to a new location in Orange County.
