The Original Megachurch and Its Founder Fall on Hard Times

Hosted by

Robert Schuller, who started preaching from the roof of a drive-in theater, went on to broadcast the Hour of Power and make the Crystal Cathedral an Orange County attraction for tourists from all over the world. Last year, the church declared bankruptcy.  Last week, Schuller's son, Robert, said his father had been kicked off the board. Over the weekend the church, now led by Schuller's daughter, Sheila Schuller Coleman, said her father is now a non-voting member emeritus, which was called an "honor."
