Robert A. Schuller to start Web and TV Ministry

Two Crystal Cathedral stories in a row; but if my stats are any indication, people have a vast interest in the soap opera playing out in Garden Grove, California.   (Okay, “soap opera” is a bit harsh…)

bobby-schullerThe Orange County Register is reporting today — based largely on a March 27th post on a blog started by Robert A. Schuller’s wife, Donna Schuller — that Robert A. is starting a new ministry.   But the story also quotes Mrs. Schuller as saying a few days ago that a formal announcement is coming “at the end of the month.”   The Schuller’s son Bobby leads a ministry project called The Gathering, which oversees a service ministry called The St. Patrick Project.  Both are covered in the story and on the blog.   You can read the OC Register story here.

Okay, it’s not just about stats, but if you got here from a WordPress or Google tag, click on the banner and take a look around.  And oh yeah, it’s not just about a soap opera either, it’s about the issues that led to this whole story starting up in the first place, larger issues that affect church and ministry everywhere.

  2. I am very disappointed that Robt. A Schuller left the CC. He was my inspiration for watching on Sun. morning. I have been disappointed in the service since he left and would be interested to find out if he will have a televised ministry.

    • June,

      I think that was the point of the article.

  4. The cathedral of course is now being renovated to be “…suitable for Catholic worship.” (Tod D. Brown, fmr. Bishop of Orange County, CA). More recently I was told the Hazel Wright Organ is being dismantled for shipment to Padua, Italy for total restoration. Robert A. gave the last sermon at CC and final Protestant benediction. The best news is that the congregation relocated to what was St. Callistus Catholic Church in early July, with the new church name of Shepherd’s Grove -and- Hour of Power is now in new broadcasts and other media from there: with Bobby Schuller as the volunteer pastor for SG/HOP and the church he started, Tree of Life Community. Vibrant messages based upon The Word, Bobby is welcoming and compassionate, but quite his own compared to father or grandfather. The program can be seen 24/7 at and as in the first service was read, “The old is gone. The new is here.” Frankly, it is a miracle and there must have been some reason, known only to God that all of the negative and sadness took place. It is with great sadness, that the family has announced the founding pastor, Dr. Robert H. Schuller to have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. With treatment, the doctors hope that he may have 2 years, but possibly less to be in this life. I encourage all who loved HOP before, to stay with the family in its new home at Shepherd’s Grove. The statue of Jesus The Shepherd has been moved from CC campus to just outside the front doors of the new location. The lacquered gold Cross seen from the earliest days within CC, has been moved to the new church and hangs above the chancel. Bobby sends out regular messages on social media, to encourage and uplift.
