Crystal Cathedral founder Rev. Robert H. Schuller has removed his son as preacher on the church's weekly “Hour of Power” syndicated TV broadcast.
Schuller said in a statement read to some 450 congregants Saturday by church president Jim Coleman that he and his son, Robert A. Schuller, “have different ideas as to the direction and the vision for this ministry.”
“For this lack of shared vision and the jeopardy in which this is placing this entire ministry, it has become necessary for Robert and me to part ways,” Schuller said.
Robert A. Schuller will remain as senior pastor of the Crystal Cathedral, a church spokesman told the Los Angeles Times.
