Moving, and Moving Forward

By Cameron D. Jackson, Donor Relations Ladies and gentlemen, my back hurts. And I’m pretty happy about that. As you are no doubt aware, Hour of Power and Shepherd’s Grove are moving to a beautiful location in Irvine. The last couple of weeks have seen our first church services and recordings at our new home, which has been an absolutely monumental feat, to say the least. But we’re not done yet! We have staff, desks, filing cabinets, files (lots and lots of files), and a few dozen other odds and ends to move. Thus, my back hurts. As to the happy part? Well… The big words buzzing around my head during this move have been “good stewardship.” The search for this new location began as a desire to save. We’ve been leasing the property we’ve been using, and the price has gone up significantly. To be perfectly transparent, the running

Staff Spotlight: Megan Ewbank

How long have you been with the ministry? Just over a year — and I have loved it! What do you do for Hour of Power? I do Hour of Power Communications. If we need writing, social media, photography, or blogging, I’m the gal! How did God bring you to the ministry? About a year and a half ago, I was working at Disneyland I needed a roommate fast. I ended up finding one on a kinda sketchy website, but she was awesome and a Christian. Soon after, she referred me to my current job. It definitely felt like a “God thing” for me to be placed in a house with her, and later at Shepherd’s Grove! I never thought I would be working in ministry, but now looking back, I can see it was all part of His beautiful plan! What is your favorite part about working here? I

It’s Official – We’re Moving to Irvine!

We are so incredibly blessed and excited for this opportunity to join forces with Irvine Presbyterian Church and to further advance God’s Kingdom, from Irvine! Beginning on Palm Sunday, Shepherd’s Grove will be worshiping in Irvine and will be moving offices shortly after. We are trusting God during this process and can see Him working to open doors, make connections, and to make this entire move possible. We are certain that God is going to do big things in the lives of this church family, the people in the fifteen feet of space around us, and beyond!   We are so thankful for your prayers and support. God is using YOU to help us reach millions with God’s message of love and dignity. Without you, this would not be possible. You are truly propelling this ministry forward as we continue to do Kingdom work. We would like to invite you

Growing Together: A Visual History, and What’s to Come

In 1955, Garden Grove Community Church held its first service at the Orange Drive-in Theater. In 1961, Garden Grove Community Church held a first of its kind service in a new location — a walk in / drive sanctuary in Garden Grove (now known as Crystal Cathedral’s Arboretum). In 1970, Hour of Power was born with Dr. Robert Schuller’s mission to reach millions who couldn’t attend church. Arvella Schuller served as the program’s executive producer. In 1975, the Arboretum was overflowing with church congregants, so Dr. Schuller begins to execute his dream of building a new sanctuary on the property. In 1979, after overcoming many contracting challenges, the Crystal Cathedral held its ground-breaking ceremony. In 1990, Bobby Schuller made his first appearance on Hour of Power, singing “I Never Touched a Rainbow” as a 10-year-old. In 2000, Bobby Schuller is interviewed on Hour of Power for the first time by his

From the Desk of: Executive Pastor Chad Blake

I am incredibly honored to serve as the Executive Pastor of Shepherd’s Grove and to be a part of an international ministry through Hour of Power with Bobby Schuller. As the Executive Pastor, I have the privilege of serving the local church by overseeing all of the pastors, ministries, and activities of the church. There is a lot that goes on in a church our size, so I am so thankful for my great team – I couldn’t do it without them.  I truly work with the best people. My journey to Shepherd’s Grove began about six years ago, when I first met Bobby at The Gathering, his church plant at the time. We quickly became friends. Throughout the years, God has taken us on quite the journey as The Gathering became Tree of Life, and eventually, Tree of Life merged with Shepherd’s Grove. Throughout this process, I’ve been overwhelmed
