Crystal Cathedral votes Schuller off board

ASSOCIATED PRESS

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. — A report says the Rev. Robert H. Schuller has been voted off the board of Crystal Cathedral Ministries, a church he founded more than 50 years ago.

Schuller’s son, Robert A. Schuller, told the Orange County Register on Sunday that his 84-year-old father wanted to enlarge the ministry’s board of directors, but members voted him off instead. The younger Schuller was ousted from the church in 2008.

The move is the latest of several — some voluntary, some not — that have brought a diminished role in the California megachurch for the elder Schuller. It is not clear what role, if any, he’ll still have.

Since 2008, daughter Sheila Schuller Coleman has headed the ministry, which has been plagued with problems including bankruptcy.

A church spokesman declined to comment.
