Crystal Cathedral Loses Pastor Sheila Schuller Coleman in Shake-Up

The Crystal Cathedral will no longer be Pastor Schuller’s fortress of fellowship.

The Orange County, Calif. congregation, already struggling after the megachurch filed for bankruptcy in October 2010 and the forced the sale of its 40-acre campus, is losing its senior pastor in a new shake-up.

Pastor Sheila Schuller Coleman told congregants she's leaving to start a new church, citing her family's "adversarial" relationship with the church's board of directors. Her announcement came one day after her father, church founder Robert H. Schuller, resigned from the board.

There's no word yet on the future of the ministry's trademark Hour of Power broadcast, but Reverend Bill Bennett assured congregants that Crystal Cathedral Ministries would hold services next Sunday.

Meanwhile, Schuller Coleman says, “my entire family has been experiencing a hostile work environment.” Apparently she’s willing to throw a few stones, since it’s no longer her glass house of worship.
